"Place for Instagram photos": how liberals presented the museum of Zoya Kosmodemyanskaya


Zoya Kosmodemyanskaya became the first woman to be posthumously awarded the title of Hero of the Soviet Union during the Great Patriotic War. In November 1941, she was executed by the Nazis when she was 18 years old. We remember Zoya and the legendary feat of the little scout, and for many years we have lived without a big war. But there are those in Russia who look at that period differently, often mocking the memory, historical truth and feelings of other people.


On the internet newspaper The Village there was an article dedicated to the new museum "Zoya", opened in May 2020 in the village of Petrishchevo (Moscow region). In it, the place of execution is called "the perfect backdrop for fashion photography and Instagram photos."

The text also says that the museum complex is an example of how to equip such places. It is mentioned that the design of the museum cost 23,3 million rubles, and the construction - 508,9 million rubles.

An example of a public space where you want to walk, drink coffee and roller-skate - in general, enjoy life, realizing the value of this opportunity

- said in the publication.

After praising the building's architecture, the story moves on to describe the museum's café. It turned out to be of a decent level to the taste of “gourmet gourmets”.

This is not a buffet with weathered sandwiches, but a bright space with floor-to-ceiling windows, stylish chandeliers and laconic furniture.

- noted in the text.

It is stated that the menu included lattes, fitness bars and a delicious set menu.

Too tasty to believe it matches what was eaten at the front

- specified in the text.

This is where the positive moments end and begin what the anti-Soviet Russophobes write such articles for. The publication expressed indignation that the USSR in the 30s was shown as a country without problems. But worst of all, there is no mention of Stalinist repressions in the exhibition.

Not a single stand about repression

- the liberals lament.

At the same time, the feat of Zoya Kosmodemyanskaya is explained only by the "professional curiosity" of the famous Soviet journalist and military commander Pyotr Lidov. There are also certain comments for "authority" in the text.

According to Oleg Morozov, senior lecturer at the School of Historical Sciences, Faculty of Humanities, NRU HSE, the feat of Zoya Kosmodemyanskaya is a “founding myth”. At the same time, he stressed that criticism affecting Stalin, the Red Army or the USSR is regarded in modern Russian society as a justification for Nazism.

There is no logic here, but in the historical policy she doesn't exist

- noted Morozov.

The teacher recalled the publication of Andrey Bilzho in 2016. Then the artist claimed that Zoya Kosmodemyanskaya was "crazy." Morozov believes that Bilzho is wrong, but he was outraged by the angry reaction of the public at that time, because there were even calls to bring the artist to criminal responsibility.

It is unlikely that in such conditions, the posthumous glory of Zoya Kosmodemyanskaya awaits any serious changes.

- Morozov laments.

More recently, French President Emmanuel Macron defended the right to draw cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad.

    Unfortunately, Judas was, is and probably always will be in the human race. But their end is the same - on the fig tree in the Garden of Gethsemane

    In fact, Zoya was a crazy, ruthless saboteur. If she had fallen into my hands in those circumstances, I would have acted the same way as the inhabitants of the unfortunate Petrishchevo.

    Any anti-Soviet will sooner or later take part in the torture of Zoya Kosmodemyanskaya or shoot Alexander Matrosov in the back. Sin will naturally forgive and trample Russia again with renewed vigor ...

    This is where the positive moments end and begin what the anti-Soviet Russophobes write such articles for. The publication expressed indignation that the USSR in the 30s was shown as a country without problems. But worst of all, there is no mention of Stalinist repressions in the exhibition.

    Read the article

    https://www.the-village.ru/city/news-new-place/muzey-zoi-kosmodemyanskoy

    The story about Kosmodemyanskaya begins with a story about the country in which she and her generation grew up. The USSR of the 30s is shown as a state without flaws: factories and power plants are being built, people are massively educated, and art is developing. And not a single stand about repression. However, the guide mentions them a little. Also, the museum reproduces several frightening or, conversely, inspiring myths, for example, about 28 Panfilovites.

    Where the author saw indignation, in my opinion, a calm statement of facts.

    At the same time, the feat of Zoya Kosmodemyanskaya is explained only by the "professional curiosity" of the famous Soviet journalist and military commander Pyotr Lidov.

    A direct lie.
    From the article:

    There are also two photographs of partisans Vera Voloshina and Elizaveta Chaikina, who were also executed in November 1941.
    After the date and place of execution, each girl has a verbatim quote of what was allegedly pronounced before her death
    The guide almost never stops with them. However, these two stands give rise to a bunch of questions: here are two more girls of almost the same age as Zoya died at the same time, the same heroic death and even with a similar speech before death (it is interesting that each girl after the date and place of execution has a literal a quote of what was allegedly pronounced before death (these are always slogans in the spirit of "For the Motherland!"). Why did Zoya become a symbol? Why didn't this happen to them?

    And they answer the question of why Kosmodemyanskaya became a symbol

    So it all started with the professional curiosity of Peter Lidov.

    In my opinion, the author of this article sucked everything out of his thumb. He sees liberals around him.

      ... liberal ideas in the last 300 years determine the development of mankind and form to some extent the idea of ​​good and bad (attitude to human life, for example), then we can say that liberals are the mind and conscience of our era

    Bykov, Nevzorov and other bilzho, have long declared that all the heroes who performed the feat in that war were crazy. And, what if we did not resist the fascists, then the victims would be many times less
