Christina Yakunina Form 10B Sixty-five years have passed since those heroic and tragic days . We are living in a different country today . Everything has changed : economy and policy, money and food, standards and the cost of living . Even its name . New heroes have come, new fashions and new ways of thought. We live in a great country , which deserves a better future. The future belongs to the young . But there is no future without the past . We have no right to forget the people who perished in the prime of life . They also dreamt to live long and be happy . It is our privilege that many wartime veterans have lived to see the 21st century and we are their contemporaries . They need care and moral support. It is not difficult to be tolerant and humane. One day in autumn 1941 my teacher told us, "Children, our school is closed for some days, we will tell you when to come again.“My classmates were happy that holidays had begun. …The Germans came the next day. They said we should go to bed at 7o’clock and young people should not go out late. If there were cows in our families , it was necessary to give the cattle to them. If someone had brothers , sons, fathers, husbands who were serving in the Soviet Army, their families would be killed. When winter came, it was really scary, because Germans could see us on the ground covered with snow and we were under attack from their planes. Every day was very difficult because a fight could start any time. I took part in many fights. It was terrible . There were a lot of Germans . They killed everybody . They killed my best friend . When the attack began everyone shouted, "For Stalin!" For Motherland! “ Galina Petrovna Tat’kova I was born in Leningrad at the very beginning of the war, on July 5, 1941. The years of the siege of Leningrad were the most terrible in our history. Those events are the part of my life . My mother told me a story . This is one of the most remarkable stories of the siege in our family. While my grandmother was able to walk, she was carrying me on her back . A woman was watching her. She was waiting for my grandmother to fall down because then she would be able to take me and eat me up... I was quite small, but I clearly remember the predatory look in her eyes ... She was like a beast hunting for you… In addition to the sight of that woman I vaguely remember the sounds of sirens, which meant the beginning of an air alert. I remember the metronome signal on the radio, remember the moment when me and my grandmother were wounded by the bomb. Alexander Pyshkin I was born in 1927 in Kryvorozhye . On 21st of October 1941 the city was full of the Italian troops. Children ran to see them. The Italians went away very quickly, and the Germans appeared then . It was terrible. I saw the hanged men. I was very shocked because the gallows stood near the church. Most of the hanged were young people , there were signs with the word "Communist" on their chests. There was a prison in my mother's factory . Also, there was a concentration camp for civilians and adolescents in my school. It was 8th of September 1943. We were woken up by the sounds of shooting . Everybody went out into the streets . I saw a Soviet tank . I saw Germans who were running out of our town . They asked us for help. Nobody helped them. It was our victory. Katerina Ivanovna Mateychuk It is necessary not to forget about the feats of our ancestors . They were creating our history . They wanted to live . They wanted to see their beloved again. THEY GAVE THEIR LIVES FOR US. It is time to stop wars all over the world , to stop violence and racism. Do you want the war to finally kill everything on the Earth? I don’t think so.
