A little truth about the Second World War

According to the survey (on our Russian page) was clear: Readers majority determined that in the Second World War won the Soviet Union.
So who won the war? In the wording of this question is a small catch: I meant the Second World War, not the Great Patriotic war. Many people were confusing with this question. As we know, the Second World War began September 1, 1939 when Germany attacked Poland and ended with the capitulation of Japan after the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, 2 September 1945. And, of course, won the countries of anti-Hitler coalition.
But I would like to focus on the Great Patriotic war (GPW). (because not for nothing many of you have decided that won the USSR). After all, Soviet Russia got the most important, the most powerful and devastating blow from Nazi Germany. And this fact is now is ignored by Western historians and foreign media.

Let's take some facts:
- The enemy lost on the Soviet-front 607 divisions, and against the Western Allies - 176, ie 3,5 times less.
- In the battles with the Soviet Union Germany lost ¾ aviation, most of the artillery (75% of), almost 80% of the tanks and assault guns.
- Of the 13.6 million people killed, wounded and captured Nazi Germany lost on the Soviet-front of 10 million people!

Any stats reveal that the Soviet armed forces led to the collapse of Hitler's military and the state machine.
Soviet Union suffered the greatest losses in World War II. 30 million lives - the price of Victory! This can not be forgotten or underestimated. It is our pain and memory!

Of course, the Soviet ideological propaganda of a few, shall we say, reinforced this historic significance. Clearly, that Soviet propaganda went too far in condemning the West, did not mince the utterances. Like, a second front was opened only when the Red Army had liberated and its territory and half in Europe.
But the Western version of the history of WWII went even further.

Take in the hands a fat book "The Second World War" authorship of English historian Liddle Hart. Almost 900 pages, but the war between Germany and the USSR devoted ...only 58 of them! What can I say ... Perhaps the author was not interested. God is with him.

According to this historic publication, "the largest tank battle" was ... at El Alamein. There met ... 60 tanks! From both sides! Bernard Montgomery, recall, defeated Field Marshal Erwin Rommel ...

My friends! But what about the Battle of Kursk?? On the field participated Prokhorovsky 1500 tanks! We do not know? " We can be deceived??

We read about the Battle of Kursk in this book. We learn that the USSR won in this battle, because ... the Anglo-Americans landed in Sicily ... so…open any encyclopedia, read: Sicilian operation began on July 10, 1943, and the Battle of Kursk - July 5, the same year, ie five days earlier.

Who Should Read This, say the least, careless historical inaccuracy? For those maybe who believe in the word, not bothering to search for truth. On the eastern front, Germany has always (I repeat - always!) lost two-thirds of its troops.

This is just a single example of historical shifts in emphasis, but it clearly illustrates the whole picture - the Western vision of the Second World War is one-sided. Turn on the TV channel "History" - check.

They detail talking there about the landing of troops in Normandy, but not about that Russia still (!!!) to pay her debts under Lend-Lease. Passed 65 years, and we who have lost the most in the war still calculated for it ... "For Whom the war, and for whom - his mother is native."

The younger generation is not much interested in this period of history. Learn about the war of books and movies (most movies only). It is not enough, in my opinion. We must not forget that "if mankind forgets its past, it will be doomed to live it again”.

The main thing to remember that:
In World War II involved 61 states, 55 millions dead. A terrible and senseless war in which people are destroying people.
The fighting took place in Europe, and Africa, and in the Pacific Ocean. The aggressive and obsessed by death military regimes in Germany, Italy and Japan were defeated.
Mankind defeated fascism only united, creating a coalition.
History does not tolerate not only the subjunctive, but also rewriting some of its pages. We are all living today must take the past as it actually happened in reality.

Let expressed in this article is only my personal opinion, we, the Belarusians have lost every third citizen in this war, must remain thankful, knowledgeable and wise, remembering the heroism of our people!

2 leadership meetings

April 30 and May 3 were held leadership meetings YMCA. The leaders held a "revision" of existing directions: how many people, what is the main activity, what are the achievements and difficulties. And we got a long list of the successes and shortcomings.
We found that we do not have enough hands on all our grand plans. So, the priority, of course, is - education and training of our leaders.

And a particularly important point was - the spirit! That the team should be cohesive and everybody understand each other.

We made a list of outstanding issues - that we planned, but for some reason has not been fulfilled. Even the solutions to some fad found.
One of the questions was - WHERE is our Squirell (Lena Litvinchuk)? We need you! Come! We keep abreast of you! :)

And we dreamed ... We drew, as we see our direction in the future. We found that Tensing wants and choir, and dance. And to show their perfomances in different stages of different cities. Youth FOR healthy way of life needs some new topics. And scouting needs at least another experienced leader, and of course - our own base!

Continuation of meetings should be ...

Dance lessons continue

Most recently Zhenya Pochepko told us that she met her old friend Sergej with unusual circumstances - he danced on the street ignoring the surprised (mostly dissatisfied) views of passersby. Zhenya did not lose and invited Sergei to teach our children dancing. Sergey agreed!))).

Style of dance, which teaches Sergei our guys called - Shuffle - if you hearing this word for the first time, read the article of Zhenya!
To know how to move our dance classes, we again learn from Zhenya Pochepko:

Shuffle is held in our club on Tuesdays. It was already 3 meetings!
Sergei ("Coach") leads his children and 3 of our multiplicators - Alina, Sergey and Masha. Fun and very hot are trainings! The first time we laughed for a long time with their awkward, but now, every encounter, they're getting better become their movement - running man (RM-a step that creates an impression of movement on the ground), teshki (Shuffle T-shaped), and still something .
That is how we dance!!!)))

We have 4 new leaders!

The 24th of April was a seminar for training the leaders of study circles, organized by the Resource program.
From our YMCA participated Anya Maikova, Luda Nikolaeva, Andrei Kovalev and Katia Nikiforova.
Congratulations! You are now - officially trained leaders of study circles! Now your main goal is to organize your first own circles!
At the seminar we learned more about the "Educational School", which is held this year under the Resource program of the principles of academic circles, the role of leader of the circle, how to build a first lesson.
Also, due to a psychological expert, we have analyzed our own leadership and creativity potential.
We learned about the concept of "project" and the foundations of design of the project proposal.
I hope that future projects will be really interesting and really creative!
Good luck and keep optimistic and efficiency!

Our Tensing took third place!

At the Festival "Theatres of Schools-14 "our Tensing took third place with the show "The Puppet theatre"!

Christina Goldina and Alexander Shuliak marked as actors!

Also, the guys got a prize for the development of youth topics!

Guys, heartily congratulate you and wish you did not stop there! After all, Lenin himself commanded - "Study, study and study again!" :-)))
We believe in you!

And now about how it was, from our main character - Kristinochka Goldina:

Our new show "The puppet theatre" by Victoria Surkova, it seems to me - is very deep and sincere.
In it we tried to show people our view of life, our feelings and emotions. We would like to say that if you really love a person, you should always be together, because together you can resist all the troubles and miseries. It is always easier.
During rehearsals we are not learned the words we should say, we really felt and played like we feel. Before working with the play "The puppet theatre" we all talked together about what we may change. And the most interesting, in my view, we invented the biographies of our heroes. It may seem that this is not very interesting, but in fact it is fascinating. Thus, our performance is truly alive.
Rehearsals were very fun and lively. For example, I could not wait for rehearsals, it's so exciting, it was held in one breath. And in rehearsals we did all sorts of exercises on trust, to feel each other on stage. We closed our eyes and imagined ourselves like dolls, feeling that every cell of our body. Each of us had our own puppet.
Each time, leaving the scene our hearts beat stronger, and not because we are afraid - no! And because, coming out to the audience, we are living this little life on the stage truly and we enjoy what we do very much!
