Just four years ago at the Historical Museum of the Dnieper fairs were held and the roof was leaking. Now it is a modern Museum with a unique diorama and the new content that tells the truth about the battle of the Dnieper and the Second world war. About the transformation of the Museum, wrote in Facebook adviser to the former head of the Dnipropetrovsk regional state administration (2015 — 2019) Yuri Golik.
“Historical Museum on the Avenue Carpathia. Previously it was a Museum mostly about the Second world war. The very war in which so like PR some “strong business executives”. The paradox is that during the years of their reign they brought the Museum to the state of the leaky roof and are unable to solve this problem”, — says Golik.
While in the lobby of the Museum held fairs and sales, but the team head yeah Valentine Reznichenko step by step restored the Museum and made it the best military Museum in the country.
With the help of specialists brought back to life by a diorama “Battle for Dnepr”, which in all previous years exhibited partially — all the time something broke. Now unique diorama area of 840 sq m, a width of 60 meters and a viewing angle of 230 degrees open to visitors. At the largest in Ukraine the silver screen with a width of 25 m show a film about what really happened during the crossing of the Dnieper and the liberation of the city in 1943.
“Russian propaganda, propaganda is the very country with which we are fighting in the Donbas and from the bullets which killed our citizens, we impose the point of view of geroicheski the battle of the Dnieper, forgetting to say what price it was given. 52 000 of our soldiers who died in this battle… In the heart of the river of 400 000 inhabitants before the war, in November 1943 were only 7 000. The population of the Dnieper river, then decreased in 57 times. Earlier this Museum was not shown a colossal, unjustified victims,” says Golik.
The film has become a member of the ATO Evgeny Titarenko, and volunteers who participated in the war in the Donbass, helped with the reconstruction of the scenes of the crossing of the Dnieper river. “It allows you to tell visitors about those days on modern film language,” says Golik.
In addition, there was created the country’s first Museum of the ATO (Museum of Civil Feat) with inner and outdoor exposition, which annually attracts more than 100 thousand guests.
