Heroes among us: Sevastopol notaries congratulated veterans on Victory Day
Representatives of the notarial community of the city of Sevastopol every year on the eve of Victory Day congratulate veterans on the holiday.
For every Sevastopol citizen, Victory Day is filled with joy and pride. Over the years of holding a charity event by May 9, notaries became friends with veterans under their care. It should be noted that veterans are absolutely amazing people! Despite their very advanced age, each of them delights with zest for life! And listening to stories from the lives of veterans, it is impossible to remain indifferent— noted in the Notary Chamber of Sevastopol.
Unfortunately, over the past year, four veterans Dremina Antonina Mikhailovna, Zagrebina Zinaida Iosifovna, Reshetnikov Rafail Alekseevich and Shamara Viktor Stepanovich have not become with us. Remember! We love! We are proud! Blessed memory to them!
Read about how the war went through the lives of a veteranV in an article published last year:
This year, the notaries of Sevastopol found two more families in which witnesses of those terrible events are alive. Here is what they told us during the meeting.
Nekrutova Ludmila Alekseevna
Lyudmila Alekseevna was born in the city of Sevastopol in 1937. Her dad is a regular military man, so in the very first days of the war he was transferred to serve in Leningrad, where he died.
Lyudmila Alekseevna recalls that she stayed with her mother and grandmother. Throughout the war they lived in cellars. Mom and grandmother went to work during the day, in the evenings they were on duty in squads that extinguished fires after the explosion of bombs. Her family remained in the city during the occupation. Remembering the events of those years, she cannot hold back her tears even now.
The city was destroyed by bombing almost to the ground, only ruins remained. There were no habitable houses. Therefore, when my grandmother was offered a job and a room in Simferopol after the war, she agreed and the whole family moved. After graduating from school, Lyudmila Alekseevna entered the university and went to study in the city of Gorky (now Nizhny Novgorod). After completing her studies as a pharmacist, in 1963 she returned to live in Sevastopol — her heart called back to her native and beloved city.
After the end of the war, 18 years had passed, but the city was still only partially restored and mostly only in the center.
A few years after returning to Sevastopol, she met her husband, Vadim Grigoryevich Nekrutov, who, like her, was born in Sevastopol, but then his family moved to Dnepropetrovsk, because his father was transferred to a new duty station. Already a young man, after graduating from high school in 1965, he returned to his hometown. When I was driving, I dreamed of returning to the city by the sea, which was associated with childhood memories, but ended up in a dilapidated city. I had to go to the construction site and restore. The construction of the city went very slowly due to the fact that everything was littered with mines, and before starting the removal of rubble or construction, it was necessary for the miners to work hard.
Koposova Valentina Leonidovna
Valentina Leonidovna was born in 1938 in Leningrad. There were four children in her family. In the first days of the war, dad was taken to the front, he died a few months later.
When the blockade of Leningrad began, Valentina Leonidovna was barely 3 years old, so the first childhood memories begin with hunger, cold and fear. Mom worked, received food cards, but the prescribed 150 grams of bread per person per day did not allow her to drown out the feeling of hunger for a moment. During the blockade life, her sister died. Therefore, at the first opportunity, my mother decided to evacuate. Valentina Leonidovna still clearly remembers how she and her mother were driving along the road of life, leaving Leningrad, and how the car ahead went under the ice in an instant, along with the people in the back.
Every time you listen to the stories of witnesses to the war, you clearly understand that we have no right to forget this! Thank you, dear veterans, for standing, being able, and winning! We are indebted to you! — emphasize in the Notary Chamber of Sevastopol.
