PHOTO REPORTS

Siege of Leningrad remembered in Cambridge

On 20 January - 19 March 2017 Darwin College in Cambridge hosts an exhibition "Art and endurance in the siege of Leningrad". The exhibition features drawings of Elena Marttila made during the German siege 1941-1944. Alongside the exhibition a rich programme of events, talks and screenings takes place (see http://www.artandendurance.org  for full programme)

Ambassador Yakovenko's address at the opening of exhibition:

Ladies and gentlemen, dear friends,

Welcome to the exhibition "Art and endurance in the siege of Leningrad". The powerful pictures of the eyewitness Elena Marttila display the horror that the northern capital of Russia lived during almost 900 days of the German siege 75 years ago. They are also proof of the courage and strength of the people who survived hunger, frost and shelling. I hope that many people of Cambridge will see them and learn the story of the city that never surrendered.

The exhibition is accompanied by a series of talks and screenings - I know that you have the full collection of the Soviet and Russian films ever made about the siege. I'd like to thank Ksenia Afonina, CAMRUSS and all those who made this extense programme possible. 

The tragic events 75 years ago left a deep impact on the people of Leningrad/St. Petersburg and the whole country. We remember those who died and pay tribute to those who survived. The drawings you can see today are an accusation against the brutality of war and a silent call for piece. Let us do our best to eradicate the scourge of war, hatred and need. This is what the million people who died in the siege would want us to do.
