The project "Summer in Pushkinka" is being implemented in the Pushkin Tomsk Regional Universal Scientific Library. This is a series of events of local history and cognitive orientation: media lessons, master classes, etc. This year they are held online and broadcasted on the library’s YouTube channel.
The video broadcast “Young Heroes of War” shows young readers of the library the books of our writers about the Great Patriotic War, where their peers are the main characters. The guys get familiar with the fate of wartime children by the example of the heroes of the books “Young Guard” by Alexander Fadeev, “Son of the Regiment” by Valentin Kataev, etc.
The video “Saved Children of Leningrad” tells about the placement of children from the besieged Leningrad in orphanages in Tomsk and Tomsk Region. Tomsk land sheltered in 1941 a pioneer camp and two orphanages from Smolensk, an orphanage from Stalin Region, and later, in 1942, children from besieged Leningrad.
The audience of the broadcast “Tomsk hospitals during the Great Patriotic War” is waiting for a story based on archival documents, memoirs of participants in events and a war timeline devoted to medical assistance to fighters of the Red Army, organized in rear Tomsk.
The collection of video materials created as part of the “Summer in Pushkika” project is complemented by an electronic collection dedicated to Tomsk Region. It includes essays, statistical and cartographic materials, archival documents of the late XIX - early XX centuries, which spotlight the demographic, geographical, socio-economic, socio-political and other aspects of the history of the region.
