Partisan Chronicles: Professor Gutorov on Fight and Creative Art of National Avengers

Partisan Chronicles: Professor Gutorov on Fight and Creative Art of National Avengers

MINSK, 17 April (BelTA) – Partisan folklore played an important role during the Great Patriotic War. It uplifted the combat spirit and inspired people to accomplish deeds in the name of the Motherland.

The accordion, even in the most difficult times, was an obligatory attribute of life in many partisan units.

“Partisan Chronicles: Professor Gutorov on Fight and Creative Art of National 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 Ivan Gutorov who wrote a book about partisan folklore. This book features pieces of journals handwritten by partisan units of Minsk Oblast. The author received them from partisans. Some of the journals were donated to the Belarusian State Museum of the Great Patriotic War History in 2011.

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.
