My family keeps memory Chapligina Viktoria
The Great Patriotic war for us now is simply a story. But there is no family, which hasn`t become acquainted with grief of bloody war. The Great Patriotic war is the greatest mental suffering in people`s hearts. It is difficult to imagine how our grandfathers and grandmothers lived during the war. It is years since the Great Patriotic war was but we shouldn`t forget about the people who gave us our bright future. They fought for our country, carried out their duty and protected us, our duty -remember the exploits of immortal heroes.
I would like to tell a little story of life of a large man… My great-grandfather name was Peter Nikolaevich Nikitin. During the first civil war his father died and he was raised by his mother. The family had 3 children and he was the youngest of them. He studied at Sunday school for two years because he had to work.
According to the stories of great-grandfather woman who lived at the end of the village gave children a bottle with a small neck and if they gathered a full bottle of mushrooms they would be given several coins. He was a naughty boy and was punished because his mother was very strict.
Peter Ivanovich was called up for military service in 1935. In 1938 he returned home and was married. His wife has presented him with a son ,Peter in 1939. In 1941 he and fellow villagers received call-up papers from military registration and enlistment office.
There were no cars in the village and recruits had to walk through unharvested fields to the village of "Pestretsy“. In 1941 he received a uniform in the military registration office in Pestretsy, Red Army book and was sent to Kazan. As Peter Ivanovich had driving skills of motor transport driver, he was appointed the driver of fighting machine on the Western Front.
My great-grandfather was a tankman on the tank and later on the rocket installation «Katyusha». The news from the front came very seldom, his wife Barbara and his mother Maria Petrovna lived in the hope of seeing him alive.They listened to the radio every day.
According to the stories of Evdokia Petrovna (my grandmother), my great-grandfather had never talked about the war, she managed to hear several stories from him. During the liberation of Krakow the Germans blew up the bridge and it was impossible to drive to this city. Then his troops put sleepers and rails into the exploded space and drove on them. So they were the first in the city.
He told us about the battle on the Kursk Bulge. It was a strong fight, they couldn`t see the sun because of the smoke and dust and everything looked like hell. There was no time to pull out the shells from the boxes and load the gun with them. The slivers flew everywhere, the earth trembled…
My ancestor was a brave soldier. His numerous rewards tell about it. He was rewarded with two Orders of Lenin. My great-grandfather was very strict. He was very hard-working. To his mind there was no time for entertainment.
At the postwar time there were eight children in his family. His wife died of serious illness after war. Later all children had departed, with the exception of his youngest son,named Nicolay. Later the fate had a misfortune for him. His son was killed by frost on the way home. Peter Ivanovich stayed in Petrovo alone. His children came to visit him and help about the house.
The village Petrovo became deserted. The school and shops were closed. There were ten houses in the village of Petrovo by the end of nineties.My great-grandfather died in 1998. He was 84 years old.
He lived a long life and underwent the terrible ordeals of the war years. The most valuable thing in his life was - a family. He fought for our future and he believed in his family and it helped him very much,gave him strength to fight,to be brave, to do heroic actions.He wanted a peaceful and happy life. I am proud of my great-grandfather.
