The last curatorial hour on the theme “Great names of the Great Steppe” coincided with the Defender of the Motherland Day, the eve of Victory Day.

The curatorial hour was devoted to the older generation of Kazakhs, their relatives and close people who during the war took part in the military actions at the front, in the work on the home front and thereby brought closer the Victory of all Soviet people in the Great Patriotic War.

Stories about these great men were told throughout the hour.

Childhood of parents of the senior teacher Lebedeva Galina Vladimirovna Vladimir Alekseevich and Olga Stepanovna was necessary for wartime. When the war began, they were 11 and 9 years old. They had to work at the collective farm on an equal footing with the adults. They mowed grass for cattle feed, cared for animals, plowed, sowed, worked for 10-12 hours, despite their young age and chronic malnutrition, the undernourished teenagers simply did not have enough physical strength. But they survived.
