Semyon Pavlovich Matin is a veteran of the great Patriotic War of 1941-1945, the Veteran of labour. The valiant son of Altai. Defender of the Motherland.
Semyon Pavlovich Matin was born March 3, 1923, in Verkh-Muta Ust-Kansky district.
When the war started, he was 18 years old. From the first days of the war, he went to the front. In 1941-1942 years fought in the 1230 th infantry regiment. Military position - gunner regiment. He had to fight in a dangerous time, but he bravely fought the enemy. He took part in the battles for the liberation the towns: Kiev, Minsk, Warsaw, Polotsk. Such countries: Hungary, Poland, Belarus.
In the battle for Don Semyon Pavlovich was severely wounded and taken prisoner. A concentration camp for POWs was in the Kursk region. Hungry prisoners ate grass. He told me that the Nazis gave them a salted water in order to peel the skin easy from the body. The Nazis opened the production of gloves, bags, lampshades from human skin.
In 1943 he and his comrades heard the rumble of the approaching front. Soon Soviet aircraft flew and began to bombard the German positions. When another bombing he and his friends decided to escape from captivity. It was night. He and his comrades took refuge in a swamp. Many days and nights they tried to reach their front.
When they got to their positions, they were sent to a penal battalion. He performed the most difficult tasks. In 1944, for the successful execution of combat tasks Semyon Pavlovich was sent to the officer’s school. After finishing school he was in resistant, bloody battles again. The senior Sergeant Matin Semyon fought in 1264 rifle regiment.
For valor and heroism - Matin Semyon Pavlovich was awarded the medal of red Star, the award of Glory III degree, the award of Patriotic war I degree, the medal "For courage" and anniversary medals of WWII.
After the great Patriotic War He came back with a victory and became the chairman of the collective farm in Verkh-Muta. At the moment Matin Semyon lives there. He has 2 children, 3 grandchildren, 6 great-grandchildren. The old veteran is 92 years old. Every year He celebrates The Victory Day with his countrymen. I am very proud of our veteran and We never forget his feat.
So, I think Victory day was and must remain the lightest holiday. Our forefathers give us the opportunity to live under the peaceful sky now and we mustn`t forget about that. I`m proud of my great-grandfather. Thanks his and other simple soldiers daily feat of arms fascism was defeated!
