The voices of Victory will sound in Perm Engines

On the eve of the 75th anniversary of Victory Day in the Great Patriotic War JSC UEC-Perm Engines launched a radio project Voices of Victory.

The project consists of twelve audio films, in which children of employees of the company read poems of a talented factory poet Gennadiy Semyonov about the work of the engine building factory during the war.

Gennadiy Fedorovich Semyonov is known for the fact that during the Great Patriotic War on his initiative the movement of Komsomol-youth frontline work teams began. Semyonov 's work team did not leave the workshop for days, supplying the engines to the frontline. From the first days of the war, Gennadiy Semenov kept a personal diary, which then turned into a diary of his frontline work team.

Also G. F. Semenov was the editor of the factory satirical magazine Crocodile Fellow traveler. He became a precious chronicler of the factory and its workers of the military time. His creativity is highly appreciated by Perm literary community. The characters of his poems are ordinary workers and teenagers who produced aircraft engines for the frontline: Vasya Khlebnikov, Sasha Kaigorov, Shura Yurkin, Evgraph Lepyokhin...


Vladislav, one of the readers also commented on his participation in the project:

- I read Gennadiy Semyonov 's poem Evgraph Lepyokhin. It's about a twelve-year-old boy who had to grow up very quickly, because the war started. He understood the responsibility he had to face. The situation depended much on such young boys and girls at this difficult time. Homefront workers worked under the slogan "Everything for the frontline, everything for the Victory!"

Other participant, Julia, thinks it is important to remember about the events of those faraway years:

- I read the poem "Girls," which is about the difficult life of girls in the wartime: they were happy with completely ordinary things, they believed in a miracle. The author wanted people not to forget what happened then, how many victims there were... I believe that we won only thanks to joint efforts - both on the frontline and homefront.


Starting from May 7, the broadcast of audio recordings has been launched at the central gate of the company and in the group of JSC UEC-Perm Engines in the social network VKontakte. In addition, since May 8, they can be heard during trips by municipal buses Nos. 11 and 50.
