This issue was dedicated to the art and in one of the Russian Nobility Assembly, which examined possible ways to restore specific practices anoblirovaniya taking into account the historical traditions of Russia and noted that in order to justify such its special position in society, the officer corps should really consist of individuals, the level of general culture which, if not higher, in any case not less than the civilian intellectuals, from individuals who have relevant identity and outlook {379} . Whatever it was, but measures for a radical change in social status and prestige of the officers are inextricably linked with the reform of the Russian army, and if the latter is finally lifted from his knees, then, in all probability, and officers will inevitably take the appropriate position in the society and will play a prominent role in the life of the country

Let us return from the bloody gray labor / Over you ascend Russia, / sun new then! .. (From Warsong drozdovtsev)

The idea we are always faithful to the holy. God is the one who goes to the feat. And one soldier in the field. Victory or death . (motto cadet school in exile)



(From the book .: An.Markov "Cadets and cadets," San Francisco, 1961).

In 1831 . it was created by the General Rules for the military schools, the foundation of which was laid of the Emperor Nicholas I: "The pupil of the Cadet Corps to become a Christian, loyal, a good son, a reliable friend, humble and educated young men, executive, patient and efficient officer. .. "(page . 11)

Boys in uniform in appearance ... and more internally, so different from their peers who studied in civilian institutions. Independently, without merging with them, they behaved these children and young men who wore the name - "Cadet", as if conscious of themselves as members of a special order, to which the Russian pre-revolutionary intelligentsia belonged if not hostile, then at any rate, with some conviction. Cadet Corps ... lived very different ideals ... and breathe another air. Their worldview was clear and simple, and it is cultivated only in the world of the old walls of the cadet corps, regardless of the color of their epaulettes ... And in the capital and in remote provinces, all the cadets were united ...

In those days, no one inspired Cadets love and devotion to the king and country and no one insisted on his duty, valor and self-sacrifice. But in all the housing situation it was something that no words spoken to them about these high-concept, saying without words the child's soul that it is attached to a world where death for the fatherland is sacred and self-evident thing ...
Always, both within the native housing, and later in life, Cadet Cadet remained a friend and brother ... We old cadets firmly believe ... that our voice carriers last cadet legends and traditions finds an echo in the hearts of all future Cadet It will be destined to create a new and free Russia. (P. 16-20)

"All I say that I am kind and forgiving to the Cadets, and no one knows what happiness gives me an opportunity to show respect to their kindness and affection. The fact that I get much more from them than give. Do not take more than two days in any case, during my obezdili as my rapprochement with the Cadets is becoming so close and intimate that the parting with them causes me great sorrow. On the day of departure in the morning, I start to languish impending separation from them and, believe it when the train almost all the Cadets, even the largest, at rasstovanii weep bitterly with me, and I can not help myself from crying ... "(p. 21)



(Zh. "All", number 164, Paris, 1936. P. 23)

In the white hall of Sumy Cadet Corps includes august inspector general of military schools, Grand Duke Konstantin. 500 pairs of young eyes with admiration and adoration dug into the high stately "Romanov" figure of the Grand Duke ...

Bedroom 4th Company, the youngest cadet. They are placed to sleep, talking animatedly about his impressions of the day - visit the body of Grand Duke Konstantin Konstantinovich. And suddenly he comes, as always, without retinue. Slowly he passes rows of beds and joking with the Cadets.
There he saw a kid who diligently Lays his bed.
The Grand Duke took the pillow, quietly sneaks up and suddenly throws a pillow at him. Frustrated little cadet, not realizing what he was doing, throwing the pillow back. Grand Duke catches it on the fly and throws in another cadet. It was like a signal for the general battle. Cushions flew in different directions, but mainly - in the Grand Duke.

Jokingly, bounces the Grand Duke, and finally grabbed the next two cadets, overturns them on the bed and leans back on it is a whole bunch of kids live. Came running scared company commanders and educator to tidy rambunctious cadet, they had to resort to ... command "Attention! "

The rumpled jacket, laughing Grand Duke rises from the bed and pretended to threaten finger.

- Your Imperial Highness, give something to remember! - Cadets shout chorus. Grand Duke takes the handkerchief and throws it. He picked up and torn into a hundred pieces, and each cadet hurry to hide a lifetime precious piece, as the memory of August, the chief favorite, this road, so close to our heart ... Cadet



(From the book .: Eugene. Vadim "Cornets and animals" ("School of Nice"), Belgrade, 1929 ).

Who dares to go to "school", choosing their life by way of an officer ... - he must know why and for what he is. He must silently, humbly and consciously agree with everything that awaits him in the future in the form of various moral barriers ... Go through the lights and strive to one: be nimble, "distinct", "dashing" noble, disciplined and loyal. Faithful to God, the King, Fatherland, debt, arms, comrades, the shelf standard of ... (p. 10-11)

... From the newspapers and rumors at the school we knew that the King this year with great attention ... refers to visiting military schools and other institutions, which educate the younger generation of the then Empire.
- It was already in the pages ... was in Pavlovsk Institute ... have been jurists ...
- We will not come! - Says one of the pessimists. - We all sovereigns does not happen ... The last visited Alexander II-st ... school is far from the center, in a remote place ... we will not go to the king, do not wait! .. (P. 49)

A week passed, and the other - everything was normal, everything was going its own order and no one at the school did not go. And now ... Over the coachman sat on the sled officer, dressed in ordinary gray officer's coat.

We all understand and learn at the same time - the King!

Someone shouted excitedly, "cheers", which together took up more - and a second - a "cheers" has powerfully thundering all platoons. "He came! He's down at the duty room! There are, down the hall! Hurray!" Confused and anxious flew our platoon replacement officer - Prince Urusov.

"What are you doing ?! How can scream platoon! We must hurry to the classroom and in the arena - combatant classes begin! March on the spot!" We did have an hour of disassembly and assembly of weapons, for which was already riding. How drenched with cold water, we rushed into classes, while others change quickly ran to the arena.

In the class we had to sit for long. Somewhere neighbors burst response to the greeting: "Good morning, Your Imperial Majesty" - and after two or three minutes - the glass door of the classroom opened, and it easily and freely entered the Emperor Nicholas II-the second coat in the Transfiguration of the colonel, gold wing-adyutantskimi knots at the shoulder.

King of medium height, with a pure white face and bordered by a small rusoyu beard, hair combed "parted" on the left side ... On the feet simple matte chrome boots, in his left hand an ordinary officer's cap with a red band. (P. 50-51)

Emperor, smiling, looked at our numbers, went to the window, leaned against the doorjamb of his - and listened to the answers cadets on small business and ordinances.
Someone answering the blackboard - suddenly confused, lost - and began to "float." King corrected him, and brought further suggested "floating" on the right path ...

In those moments when we talk about building a cavalry regiment in the back tower - as if suddenly disappeared in the class ... I cant Emperor was a simple window seat of an army officer, apparently well acquainted with the construction of statutes, because everything said King, It was quite in accordance with the charter of the parade ...

When the Emperor, thanking us out of the classroom and, accompanied by the head of school and the other officers, went to the church and out of it in the playpen - we have not considered with schedules and regulations, and without any restraint rushed after him, making his way back stairs and all sorts of detours. (P. 51)

Unnoticed by the school's courtyards filled with people, and all of the New Peterhof avenue in front of the school - already filled with a thick, colorful and curious crowd the outskirts of St. Petersburg.
- The King! .. King! .. I ... One cadets arrived! .. - And then opened the big doors in the arena - starts swirling cloud of thick vapor mingled with the cold outside air and the average growth of the Transfiguration of the colonel, smiling and putting his hand to his cap, he went out to his crew.

Thundered, poured "cheers", which was no longer confinement ... all mixed up around the place, where the king's sleigh - and the officers and cadets, and "civilians from the arena" and everything bitty and work that was thrown from myself inns abound buildings and school services - all lived unusually, the flame of life moments that could only generate and cause the royal visit. (P. 53)

King barely sat down on the seat sled.
And around him - clinging to ledges goat coachman of the king's seat, the tabs for oral, standing on rails, frantically jumped at zaletki - bunches of grapes hanging cadets.

But the cadets - no one else could, and did not dare to admit anything like that ... It was our privilege integral, our hallowed custom law.
Quietly, patiently and majestically perched high above us all the royal coachman, with a black beard and a quadrangular blue cap. ..

- Oh, God! - Emperor said. And the horses moved. Touched the pitch - but surely, almost without effort. A great effort was required! .. Not move the sled with the driver who was sitting behind him, and the Emperor, but rather a special kind of bee swarm, stuck to one place.
- Interesting! - The Emperor smiled, surprised to find that one of the cadets of small stature was sitting at his feet, a cavity sled, hunched, - how many of us are going? - Start counting.
- Just eighteen, Your Majesty
- Not bad ... - more fun Emperor said. - And everyone comfortable?
- Why, Your Majesty! Very! ..
- Give something to remember, Your Majesty! - Said one of the most outspoken.
- nothing else! - Said the Emperor. Two handkerchiefs I took back in the arena! .. - And the horses walked and walked forward, with shouting "hurray", among the crowd ran along the sides, dressed in gray cadet overcoat ...

Suddenly, a sharp whistle hoots and screams stood out from the general buzz. Billowing snow, one after the other, dashing caracoled raced on horseback on the sides of the king's sleigh cadets Cossacks ... They posedlali their horses and accompanied the emperor in his sleigh ... with Nicholas II turned out of the gate of the school at the New Peterhof, moving to Egyptian Bridge - and cadets - all lucky continued to follow along with the King in his sleigh and their runners, and the Cossacks rushed around doing trick riding, tumbling and showed his natural boldness ...

And only at the Egyptian Bridge Emperor he raised his hand and pointed to the way to college ...
- Home, home! Pretty gentlemen .. Goodbye! ..

The driver held a couple of ... Liberated from the many passengers have quickly moved the sledge - entered the Egyptian, turned along the embankment.
The emperor turned again, made a friendly sign with his hand in a white glove ... (p. 54-55)

King ... the great king, vast country, the leader of the incalculable, victorious, glorious army in the world ... So I think it felt as if the hearts Gorelov ...
After three days of our school was empty. The king ordered the release of all in the three-day holiday, forgive all penalties and transfer all fined to the highest rank ... (Pages 55-56)

A group of officers from the battalion captain SLAC came to the convent to worship his shrines. They were met by the abbot, a nun and abbess. The abbot blessed the defenders of the Orthodox Faith and distributed to all the black monastic prayer beads - a symbol of service to the Church and people. The officers were deeply touched by this blessing. Wearing a rosary in his hands, they found the gift related not only to him personally, but to the entire regiment; We considered that all Markovtsev from this day can wear monastic rosaries.

Fate as if she sent Markovtsev the path of Christian service - Faith and Fatherland, the Church and the people. And then remembered ... When Novocherkassk formed the 1st Battalion officer in its ranks raises the question of creating a "Crusade" mouth that would have on their uniforms crosses - a symbol of the campaign for the Faith and Fatherland. But then, the commission found naked, black straps with white piping - a symbol of death and resurrection. Remember and bless others nunnery - Intercession Monastery under Ekaterinodar. We talked about the blessing of St. Sergius of Radonezh - the heavenly patron of the regiment and chief (shelf), General Markov.

But it has not caught on - the authorities reacted regiment is not serious - they are issued within the meaning of this profound fact of the regiment it into oblivion. Maybe because he knew - in the midst of fierce struggle could not help stall the voice of the Christian conscience, hardens the heart and the inevitable violation of debt associated with the wearing of beads. Silent about the blessing and the regimental chaplain. But they are not forgotten: there were, who in his life and deeds mentally fingered rosary beads ... (p. 51)

accomplished the great mystery of life and death. Almost everyone I meet, the days of horror and despair. It seems that the old foundations are crumbling.

When the main opponent of the Reds was Poland and the Russian army of General Wrangel, ... the number of red army has increased to 4,000,000 people ... Of course, we must take into account the fact that the Reds were forced to keep most of the troops in the rear as a garrison and also as a barrier against the enemy in the Far East, but at the same time provided Red forces at the front is always greater than the strength of their opponents several times. It is also known that at the beginning of the struggle volunteers in southern Russia did not have any warehouses with weapons, missiles and ammunition, and in the hands of the Reds got all the warehouses of the Imperial Russian army in the frontline and central parts of Russia ...

The Red Army already by February 1, 1918. there were 476.000 rifles, 7,000 machine guns and cannon in 1761 ... During the civil war the military industry of Russia, Izhevsk arms workers, Perm, Tula and Putilov factories able to prepare, in addition to the remaining stocks in the warehouses, 887,049 more rifles, 751,000,000 cartridges 10,516 machine guns and 382 guns.

White Army on the eastern and southern fronts of the civil war, according to the book "History of the Civil War in the USSR," has received from the United Kingdom and the supply of weapons by about 350 thousand soldiers, ... for the army of Kolchak Siberian it sent weapons, supplies and uniforms for 100,000. Now we all know that, unfortunately, very, very much out of all delivered to the Armed Forces of Southern Russia fell into the hands of the Reds during the retreat of the Volunteer and Don armies of the Eagle, with the abandonment of Rostov-on-Don in 1919 and during the evacuation of Novorossiysk. The number of the Armed Forces of Southern Russia in October 1919. increased to 150,000 soldiers, ... and in the ranks of the Siberian army of Admiral Kolchak , retreat to her, there were 130,000 people.

... At the front is always rare exceptions, the number of Red Army troops exceeded the number of white several times, and in the last days of fighting in the Crimean sector of the front outnumbered the Reds reached unprecedented dimensions, as well as the superiority of their armament. (P. 253-254)

The Polish army, after the defeat of the Reds near Warsaw, will soon have pursued the retreating Reds beyond the borders of Poland, but also soon, England refused to Poland for further assistance, the Germans did not agree to pass military equipment and weapons through Danzig and Czechoslovakia closed its borders and sent France, Poland weapon missed. The Polish government has agreed to enter into a truce proposed by the Council. Stop fighting.

With the release of the Polish simultaneous with General Wrangel struggle with the Reds, the Russian army was no more likely to succeed ... (p. 267)

When General Wrangel, saw the hopelessness of the situation, he stopped further resistance and fine evacuated its troops and civilians associated with the army, from the Crimea. Red failed to destroy the Russian army, in spite of the overwhelming superiority in numbers and weapons. The Russian army, with their leader, went into exile. (P. 272)

On the eve of the evacuation of General Wrangel he presented military banners, banners embroidered with the representatives of the parts they established the motto of the Order of the Crimea (the cross) St. Nicholas, the patron saint of Emperor Nicholas II and the blessing of the White Army, icons Patriarch Tikhon: "Russia will be saved by faith." The troops saw them already in exile in Gallipoli.

Supreme Commander Admiral Kolchak, General Wrangel, Kutepov, Drozdowski, Mark, Kappel, Keller Turkul, Manstein ... - about 80% of the Volunteer Army officers were monarchists; in their parts of the gene. Drozdovskii already created during the formation of a secret monarchist organization (Denikin, III, 131), but the Russian Tsar abdicated in his face by the Mother of God of the Living God - and the volunteers did not fight for the political system, but for the great Holy Russia, home of the Mother of God leaving the outer form of government it is determined after the victory. So it will be, and already have! Holy Russia lived in the burning love and sacrifice dedicated to her heart white soldiers , its heroes and monks - but with such a whole had become a Russian ... - Ed.

In a country with a population at that time more than 150 million., To protect their violated rights stood at first only single - and those, mainly of young people. (In 1917. Emperor's army numbered 5 million. Pers., The officer corps - about 300,000 people. - Ed.) Then, in the ranks of the whites in the south of Russia was the best part of the nation - Russian boys, adolescents, women and even children, who, together with officers Cossacks, volunteers and students have been from the very beginning of the struggle, doomed and dying, covered themselves with everlasting glory. Future Russia remembers them, be sure to remember, as the Knights of the debt, but also do not forget about those not allowed to forget who did not offer them a helping hand, leave them alone to bleed in the unequal struggle. (P. 273)

Whites were defeated, but ideas for which they fought, and now continue to live in the hearts of millions of people, turned into slaves, and although slow, but approaching the time of their release. (P. 275)

After the end of the armed struggle with the red and white of the distant Siberia brought with them into exile his song ... Since then, this song sounds everywhere scattered among all the countries of white fighters for the honor and freedom of Russia ...

You swept snow, Russia / Zapurzhilo a gray blizzard, / And the cold winds of the steppe, / Requiem sung over you.
No way, no trace of the plains, / By the boundless snow drifts. / Do not get to his family shrines, / Do not listen to native voices.
swept, skidded zapurzhilo / All holy gray blizzard. / Thou blind cold force / You like death, lifeless snow.
You swept snow, Russia / Zapurzhilo a gray blizzard, / And the cold winds of the steppe, / Requiem sung over you ... (p. 279)

Lieutenant Regiment Genkin Drozdowski wrote ... for the holiday Christmas poem "Guiding Star":

Our holiday ... far ... ... Former / Snow drifts on the river ice rink ... ... / rosy cheeks, fingers frozen, / Mother pale stern rebuke.
Time is short even before Christmas Eve, / days if in fairytale gone ... / seen everything from the nearest spruce / Yolka brought yesterday.
on the tree will be handed out gifts to all, / how much joy! In the bitter cold / With dark sky covered by stars, / Christ descended quietly ...
With this naive, childlike faith / left in a blizzard and a snowstorm ... / take away the joy - a soldier's gray / in the old patched cloak.
To take away the joy of the trenches, battle / explosions of shells, shooting, gun ... / We had one consolation - / All for Russia and all of the people.
All of a sudden unexpected blizzards whirled ... / All it skidded - and fields and forests. / And in Russia, sick and abused, / Death band passed.
Life was with such a bifurcated, / Rodina back there ... / Throughout the world scattered warriors / With an eternal hope in the breast.
Let the cold Christmas night / In the heart of sadness will dissipate: / From childhood, we shining star guiding / Our Holy Great Russia!

For Drozdovtsev and to this day the Holy Great Russia - a guiding star ... (p. 258) Nearly three years continued the heroic struggle of the white with red in the south of Russia, and in this struggle Drozdovtsy passed triumphant march without losing morale even in the days our failures. (P. 361)



(From the Journal. "All", number 97, Paris, 1933).

White movement is not the subject of the story, and there is really historical dates, at least for the Volunteer Army, may be only two: the beginning - November 2, 1917 and the end - when the Lord tells him, there, in Moscow ... (P. . 23)

The Bolsheviks demanded publicly remove epaulets, a symbol of the Imperial Army and the military honor. At night the cadets gathered lay down straps to the little coffin and then, risking their lives, secretly buried in a vacant lot. Cadet Luzanov, Grade 6, read a poem written by him-a vow:

The time has come for a serious body time / Steel is dark for us the light of God: / bathed in blood red seed / running stripped Cadet ...
Yet we have not lost faith, / We know that light the dawn / Vozstanut heroes fighters officers, / And with them will go to the cadets.
They were the wall will Cadets, / Like a flock of youthful falcons / Courage grief and joy warmed / hurl all enemies.
And our tyrants, the power of evil / disappear forever, like smoke, / And we are for the offense, All expensive, / For honor our revenge ... it (p. 28)

The Emperor says that we should protect the holy Faith and Fatherland, to faithfully serve his motherland and, as an example for his subordinates, which should be treated not only demanding and strict but paternal care ... (p. 25)

CO repose of the Holy King.
Those who have always been loyalty, / Who donated a fair, / Whose body all the bayonets tattered, - /
Soul sinful you repose. " Captain M. Sheremet. (P. 205)

One Russian prisoner in Belgium told me in the days of the Second World War: "And the late King seen! .. During the retreat, near Kiev, and then at Smolensk ... He always appeared at a difficult moment! The soldiers were afraid of the enemy raids, well, since the King people showed up and directed the movement elsewhere, where there were safer ... No one can say exactly when and where, but - seen! .. He showed his hands to quietly were not to be afraid, and always with such kindness .. . "

And one farmer said directly: "I prayed to him people! Where you will go? Who do you say? But he, Russian Tsar, pray, weep, and your soul will be easier ..."

Serbian Church canonized the Tsar with the Family of the saints. People prayed: ... "You, Russian Tsar, knower of all the troubles and unhappiness, your faithful nobles, deceived by traitors and vile people ... pray for us sinners!" (P. 203)

10-24 January 1918. The Siege of Kiev the Bolsheviks.
During the ongoing cannonade, which lasted for two weeks, almost every house pious prayers were served, and there was not a single case that was killed and the priest praying ... At the time of the liturgy in the Church of the Tithes St. Nicholas heavy shell hit the main dome of the temple and flying through the temple, ran into the throne, which was offered at this point bloodless sacrifice to God. The projectile did not explode, and the pastor of the Church continued to worship. A similar incident took place in the Church of Candlemas. Innumerable number of the signs of God is done in front of the chapel to the people of Kiev B. Zhitomir street belonging to "Skeet Most Pure", which went even stole the Bolsheviks. Everyone is familiar with the case where the whole company Bolsheviks razstrelivala a young officer at the time, when his wife, kneeling praying in the chapel of the Mother of God, filling the icon "unexpectedness of joy" ... tears
in an accident releasing dozens of rifle bullets, the Bolsheviks sent him away, saying, "Koli you even a bullet does not take, so go get yourself on all four sides, once messing with you ..." (p. 37)

The corner house ... rector Sretensky church served a prayer service. At this point, a heavy shell hit the house ... with terrifying power of flying without hitting any of the faithful, through the room and punched a hole in the wall ... exploded on the pavement, killing only those who, without waiting for the end of the prayer, I went out of the house. (P. 37)

July 6, 1923. Kiev. With lightning speed through the city to spread the news that in the Church of All the Afflicted that Sennoy market, wonderfully renewed under the dome of the bell tower, and the icon of Our Lady of Kazan at the entrance to the Church ...

The entire area in front of the church and all the surrounding streets were covered with a crowd of thousands. The sun was setting, the evening came, and updated white dome shining golden color. This dome I knew perfectly ... All he was some kind of unclear, sandy indeterminate color. Glitter was not in it any. And suddenly he was now not only cover the new, shiny gold, but even light some mysterious light.
In the morning on July 6, when it became known wonderful update of the dome and the Kazan Icon of the Mother of God, tens of thousands of people rushed there to behold marvelous manifestation of God's power. In the eyes of the audience happened wonderful sign of God: one after another, gradually mysterious icon of St. updated. Seraphim, Helena, Constantine and Theodosius of Chernigov, written on the bell tower dome drum. All watched with bated breath to see how in a minute appeared gilding, faces brightened and faded paint on were dilapidated and icons. Now they are like new, as we have just written. (P. 343)

In the Church itself refreshed Three hundred Shroud, Crucifixion and two banners. Shroud was quite old and tarnished. Now the whole shroud shines in gold and silver and affects all its beauty and artistry. It's the same banners. (P. 343-344)

Everything is then in the temple, turned their attention to a completely dark icon hanging on the wall. She was wearing a bright glow in a spot, which began to grow more and more. In less than an hour, before the shocked people face beamed St. Nicholas, ... (a few hours) has refreshed the entire middle part of the image of St. Nicholas, but the circle was the perfect black. And here ... in the eyes of all that were in the church, the light emanating from the face of St. Nicholas, penetrated farther and farther away, absorbing and dissolving the darkness and blackness that covered more of the icons do not update, and finally acted in all its glory whole image of St. Nicholas.

Now it is evening. The church was dark. Electricity is not burned. But the face of the saint shone some special superhuman inner light. It was an amazing picture. For the first time in my life I saw the power of the religious impulse of the crowd .... St. Nicholas shone among us as a living, and all felt his presence ... All those who now saw the icon, in one voice say, that such an image of St. Nicholas beauty and grandeur, none of us had ever met. (P. 344)

The next day, July 7, began updating the second dome of the same church and icons located under the dome ... For three days completely renewed all the icons that are on the domes - St.Vladimir, Olga, Nicholas, Alexander Nevsky, Alex, Peter and others. But the dome completely renewed. The same day, the St. George Church renewal began. Especially icon depicting "Agony in the Garden" and ... cover and the icon image of Christ the Savior from the cross, going to Golgotha. In addition, the updated More dome on the Church of the Nativity in Podil.

One of the most remarkable upgrades occurred under the bell tower of St. Sophia Cathedral. There's a long time, almost since the time of Peter Graves, hanging image Wonderworker St. Nicholas (wet) with a child, drowned in the river in the 1072g. On it but two or three dark figures, it was impossible to make out. Now the ancient icon is a picture of marvelous beauty. Before beaming in gold way communication. Nicholas is a child out of the water, and are the parents, priests and monks, the elderly, and in the distance you can see the Dnieper, painted with great skill. All artists amazed by this wondrous way. Update began with a bell tower, was on Thursday, that is, a day dedicated to the memory of St. Nicholas of Myra. "(p. 343-345)

We must believe that the Russian people will return to the way of love, for in the blood and suffering of love is born, and only in it to make sense of our existence. (P. 27)

Word of the Mother of God:
"This day grace stepped from the church, understood the Old and the public. The Holy Spirit on my chosen, whose lungs are full of Me, whose aspirations - the Lord and the Virgin in Glory! My Bosom take them oblistaet light, warmth warm, shielding the temple, Finger and sukazuyuschy so bring them under the protection of an angel and help escape the temptation and temptations on the way ...

Light cover and Marian oblistal universe, and anyone from a sincere heart laboring fervently in church, be comforted, strengthened and upokaivalsya - Church met him, patronized on the earthly way and accompanied in the way everlasting ... Among the kings and patriarchs were pious princes and rulers, and Providence Holy claimed their hands - as location - the order of humility, love and light ... "(p. 71)

"The Church - not a fixed house, not a temple of the earth and heaven only cathedral. Church - state governed meek lamb, the emperor (king). The Church - the community, oppressed and those who suffer in the name of God. The Church - the soul of the soldiers who died on the battlefield. Church - the relics of fragrant. Wherever the light and the truth - there is the Holy Church of Christ. Wherever proclaimed to the world order, repentance, humility, entrusting to the will of God, love of enemies, and sweet tenderness in the gate - alive Theotokos Church militant Paraklita- Spirit!

Blessed be talking about the Church-martyr, assailed the enemy, grieving; the flesh of the Church, as Christ Himself.

Among my many true secret to Nicodemus held high posts in the state; many pastors, light and warmth of charity rises from the death-bed and solazna hundred souls, leading them to a place of repentance - Mount Calvary, to the wall sobbing and crying ...

It is true that the Church since the early days it was made bitter enemy. Demon tempted the Lord in the desert, after several centuries of stay in the first Christians torturers, has found refuge in the rulers of the earth, disguised by the grace of Christ Crucified for the creation of alien affairs, vile, bloody ...

The Lord told me that the Church as His bride and flesh, popuscheno crucified, and first to be tempted and tested by the enemy. And two years tyschi terrible temptations of worldly glory, sustenance and humility - two thousand years the Church tempted by the devil in the wilderness of the world, until finally they came to the world of the truth of Christ, paraklitskie soldiers, and after forty days of fasting in the desert meet the tempter: "Do not I live by bread alone. " They sought not the outside of a miracle, and internal - transformation, and a dizzy height of arrogance humbly answered: "Do not tempt the Lord your God," and rejected the temptations of the world, answered the tempter: "Lord one serve, to worship him." And so, I brought covenants and performing them made up for the righteous army on earth and in heaven. "(P. 72-73)

James H. Carter outlines the birth of Chinese nationalism in an unlikely setting: the international city of Harbin. Planned and built by Russian railway engineers, the city rose quickly from the Manchurian plain, changing from a small fishing village to a modern city in less than a generation. Russian, Chinese, Korean, Polish, Jewish, French, and British residents filled this multiethnic city on the Sungari River. The Chinese took over Harbin after the October Revolution and ruled it from 1918 until the Japanese founded the puppet state of Manchukuo in 1932. In his account of the radical changes that this unique city experienced over a brief span of time, Carter examines the majority Chinese population and its developing Chinese identity in an urban area of fifty languages. Originally, Carter argues, its nascent nationalism defined itself against the foreign presence in the city—while using foreign resources to modernize the area. Early versions of Chinese nationalism embraced both nation and state. By the late 1920s, the two strands had separated to such an extent that Chinese police fired on Chinese student protesters. This division eased the way for Japanese occupation: the Chinese state structure proved a fruitful source of administrative collaboration for the area's new rulers in the 1930s.

Tonight, I remembered an email a few years ago, from a lady who was interested in Russian Opera history. I wrote to her to ask about my two Great Aunts who sang Opera, Claudia Trofimovna Sitnikova (& a pianist who Dad called Uncle Gosha Rott. And Clara's daughter Sofia Leonidovna Taranovskiya) & Alexandra Trofimovna (Savrasova then Pokrovsky) Sitnikova. This is what some of the response email said :

"I've done some research in the Russian web, but there is not much result. There is no information on Clara's and Alexandra's singing and career. I found several short articles from ballet encyclopedias on Sofia Leonidovna Taranovskaya though. http://www.book-chel.ru/ind.php?what=card&id=3652
"Sofia Leonidovna Taranovskaya (27.12.1923 Yaomyng, Manchuria — 03.01 1998 Chelyabinsk), a ballerina, a teacher, an Honored Artist of the Russian Federation (1958), studied at the ballet school in Shanghai (at the class of Audrey King),from 1948 the leading ballerina of Sverdlovsk opera theater; 1978-91 worked as a teacher at the ballet studio of Sverdlovsk theater." Not every artist from a provincial theater could get the title of Honored artist of the Russian Federation; her career was successful.

Also I found out that Georgy (Gosha) Yakovlevich Rott, a famous pianist worked in Kazan ( Soviet Republic of Tatarstan) from 1948. There is a book in Russian called "Guide to the Jewish Russia" by Margarita Lobovskaya; (I don't have the book, I found just an excerpt from it on Google Books ). From that excerpt it's clear that something bad happened to Gosha Rott, though he survived Stalin's repressions. He lived and worked in Kazan to the end of his life as a member of concert brigade in the Kazan Philarmonia and a leader of a band. Clara was not mentioned . Perhaps his troubles were connected to his work abroad; in the 1930-40's many people who had worked and lived abroad , especially in Harbin and Shanghai were repressed. He couldn't go to Moscow or Leningrad and had to live in Kazan .

As for Clara Sitnikova, if she disappeard in the 1940's, then I'm afraid that she could be imprisoned. I found an article on Stalin's repressions of Harbinians , and there were excerpts from examination record of an operetta artist Brusin, he worked in Harbin in 1924-1935, then returned to Russia. He was arrested and shot as a spy in 1937. The examination record was interesting because there was mentioned Sitnikova . An NKVD investigator ( NKVD later became KGB) said to Brusin, "Call the names of the people recruited by Yamaguchi ( former Harbinians were usually jailed as "Japanese spies" or White Russian terrorists)."
" The singers Sitnikova and Molozhatov. In Harbin they tried to be in the company of Soviet officials and NKVD officers; they got them involved in drunken parties..." Naturally, Brusin couldn't stand tortures and said everything he could to save his life.
It's not clear whether they talked about Alexandra or Clara."

This is the man my Dad called Uncle Gosha :) He was my Great Aunt Clara's lover in Shanghai. Dad recalled living with them in Shanghai for a while, watching Gosha warm his fingers up and practice piano, his Aunt singing Opera, the parties they held, and how glamorous his Aunt Clara was http://www.russianshanghai.com...18#more-18

About A. Vertinsky. Report to the Shanghai newspaper

Liceum Theatre (1930).Grand piano on stage and talented Liceum accompanies George Rott. And the piano - a tall, strong figure in a frock coat with a white plastron with a white flower in his buttonhole.

Vertinsky!

Vertinskii - is, in essence, a symbol. This name is so often see in newspapers, its melody, the words, the manner of transmission so common everywhere, you hear of all black vents radio that when you see him alive in front of you, you will not believe:

- Really - that is what is Vertinskii?

Vertinskii - a whole era. Vertinskii - a whole generation, that's why on the bill of his concert in the corner stood a modest three mysterious figures "XXX."

Vertinsky sang for the first time in the sweltering predgroze before the Great War, when the world did not know that slides into the abyss of history.

Vertinskii then in his sad way Piero came contrast, the verdict a warning to the greedy, fat, swallow salmon reaction prosperous society and passed in front of the entire Russian arm in arm with a girl from the Boulevard, "in the wet gorzhetochke." In fact, it was also "epatirovanie bourgeois" such as Futurism, but completely different than doing something Mayakovsky and others.

Art Vertinsky - is present, Russian art, unusually good, a little bit, I would say, "God's fool." From love Vertinsky at hand to the monastery, to the quiet light lamps, dome of the Church to that golden candles burning in the blue sky. No wonder it is "Mother Superior" permeated this authentic mysticism Teresa of Nettesgayma. Vertinskii unusually good for the soul: he then took the side of the "girls in gorzhetochke" as Dostoevsky once unfolded like a banner unspeakably miserable "dradedamovy Scarf" Sony Marmeladova. On the other hand, he loves life and flesh, and "Her taste and color, and the stifling, mortal scent of flesh ..."

Probably Vertinskii would like to sit at the banquet of life is shaken by it Sonia to this sonorous, bold, strong world was some tenderness, a little torn. It is necessary because even a little upset to be sensitive ... And then came the war ... And the "warrant officer Vladimir", which sat in the car -

I shine shoulder straps,

You trembling hand ...

These dusty cars

Waiting for the last call ...

- The lieutenant heard songs Vertinsky in wet trenches on the Russian Rabbah and near Baranovichi and near Riga, and when the vast expanses of the Polish green light lit the rocket and shone on patches of snow - in the dugouts gramophones Vertinsky sang words that life is something, in fact, beautiful women - are amazing, gentle, anything in the world and while the rough and senseless war - were love and happiness.

Vertinskii connected with the crowd, and the crowd always believed, even in the most brutal struggle for existence that life is good, because otherwise, and to fight for existence would be nothing. Passed revolution, Vertinsky stepped into exile, saying all about the same, about the wonderful shoulders Princess Irene, about the fact that even the poor a walk in the Bois de Boulogne with his wife - a wonderful thing, that in fact it is necessary to expect that everything will turn out in a good way.

Vertinsky, perhaps, the only one of the emigrants, whose gentle voice sounded in Soviet Russia. In Moscow, they say, one can live a month in a room for one plate Vertinsky Moscow ... "Literary Gazette" controversy with his "decadent mood" in Soviet books-novels flashed his name as a common noun.

A Vertinskii in Shanghai ... Fatal "XXX"! But you gave Vertinskii?

No, oh no! .. His songs grow, acquire other, nowhere unseen, unheard of in nature - some moral-philosophical and worldly-wise treatises. Here and gentle reproof women praise male friendship, and whatever ... And all this unprecedented form of verse, verse, honed, dramatized wonderful recitation, set in the melody, accompaniment feathered Gregory Rotta.

«XXX»! .. Should Vertinskii in place? No, he keeps pace with the mood of emigration, with all the Russian people ... He understands that "the storm has passed," and he, a troubadour, cheerful and sad, mocking and observant, rings on his lute new tunes. At the final concert the completely new theme - Blok, Vladimir Mayakovsky.

About Alexander Vertinsky"So much for the" song of Pierrot "- I thought, when the stage Liceum rattled like falling rocks stanza of Mayakovsky. This "Crazy maestro" of the orchestra unleashed a tragic lament copper trombones, violins screech frightened, and so that a business man swallowed appetizing salmon - suddenly ran from the room in horror ... What 'girls in gorzhetochkah "it is obviously not wade succeeded! It should be a means stronger. And now Vertinsky not crying girl in gorzhetochke and deafening cries, tears threatening words he copper-neck band. Suddenly a powerful, almost deafening sounds and the voice itself Vertinsky ...

Vertinskii - that's what he thinks the mass, the crowd thinks. The crowd is eternal, and it is eternal and Vertinsky. The crowd is smart, and it's smart and Vertinsky. It should be a positive surprise in our city, amidst this universal "bezrybya", "besptichya" and "solitude" Vertinskii alone, in itself, bears and solves issues that impose the course of our history.

Just wonder that about Vertinsky not write a book; This book is a powerful figure. And people who casually sitting side by side with him in the "Renaissance", the actors, who can not distinguish from the theater booth, vulgar and malicious parody actress anxious waiting, when will finally decipher what they are not wanted - All they really think they're familiar terms with "Alexander Nikolayevich."

And then not. No! Here the "talent, talent from head to toe," a mighty talent, great talent of a great artist who speaks to the people over the heads of all endangered pretentious temporary authority.

:cry: this is the first I have read so much about Gosha, whom Dad spoke of so fondly. I am unsure whether Gosha was married to my Great Aunt Klaudia in Shanghai, or if they just lived together in civil marriage. I am yet to discover the truth about their relationship... http://www.an-tat.ru/zhurnal-nash-dom-tatarstan/9/2664/
