We will remind that 15 authors joined work on the collection: journalists of large regional editions and regional newspapers
The head of the author’s team, chairman of the regional Union of Journalists of Russia Viktor Tolkachev spoke about the work on the book.
According to him, the idea of creating a kind of book of memory appeared two years ago. At first it was an electronic resource, and then it was decided to publish a book.
– It was important for us that journalists from the countryside worked on this publication, wrote biographies of their compatriots, paid attention to their military merits, – said Victor Tolkachev. – In the process of working in open sources, we searched for archival documents describing the feats performed by veteran journalists, copies of these documents are also placed in the book, there is information about the orders and medals that these people were awarded.
The book contains biographies of 46 Arkhangelsk journalists-veterans – soldiers who died in the battles of Berlin and Manchuria, journalists who returned home from different fronts after the Victory, in their offices, to their work.
– This publication is a worthy continuation of the chronicle of Arkhangelsk journalism. And for our library it is especially important, because it is in the walls of Dobrolyubovka carefully stored works of Arkhangelsk journalists, – said the director of AONB Olga Stepina. – In addition, we actively involve municipal libraries in the work with local lore literature.
Circulation of the book “Arkhangelsk journalists-veterans” is small – only 300 copies. Some of it was transferred to district libraries today, so that readers can learn about the fate of those who supported Soviet soldiers during the Great Patriotic War or later, in peacetime, shared memories of everyday life on the pages of newspapers, magazines and books.
– It is symbolic that the book was published on the eve of Victory Day, – said Deputy Prime Minister of the Arkhangelsk region Ivan Dementiev. – It is especially important that it will be included in every municipal library and will be available not only to acquaintances and relatives of the heroes of the publications. Teachers and librarians will introduce it to schoolchildren, because it is to the younger generation that we must first of all pass on the historical truth, the memory of the Great Patriotic War.
