Partisan Chronicles: Art by People’s Avengers

Partisan Chronicles: Art by People’s Avengers

MINSK, 3 April (BelTA) – Art played an important part in partisans’ lives. Cut off from the frontline, partisans had to maintain their fighting capacity on their own. This pertained to weapons and morale. They set up makeshift workshops and raised their spirits by the works of partisan poets, writers, artists and performers.

“Partisan Chronicles: Art by People’s Avengers” is a new page of the joint project of BelTA and the Belarusian State Museum of the Great Patriotic War History. It is dedicated to partisans’ art.

The project is based on a unique collection of handwritten partisan journals provided by the Belarusian State Museum of the Great Patriotic War History. The collection was assigned the status of historical and cultural value of international importance (Class 1).

Every week BelTA brings these chronicles to light and posts their digital copies. Each of them sheds light on various aspects of partisans’ life, gives a glimpse into thoughts and feelings of people who risked their lives to fight a battle behind enemy lines.
