PRIVATE LOCUS: HOME AND FAMILY IN ORAL MEMOIRS OF EYEWITNESSES GREAT PATRIOTIC WAR

KHLYNINA Т.Р.

  • Nature and characteristics of the memories eyewitnesses of the Great Patriotic War of the
    home and family indicate that they were the most important locus of their daily lives. Life, most
    of which was spent in conditions devoid of even a hint of the possibility of privacy or shelter
    from the watchful eye of neighbors. House for Soviet man remained not only his strength but
    also space swarming life where as in classical theater actions were coupled with the canonical
    text of sequence which straightened. Frequent change of habitat, in fact, does not change the
    way of life and the customary crowded environment, transforming it into a kind of decoration,
    part of which remained unchanged only family. Housing policy of Soviet power and the
    extraordinary circumstances of life in wartime have expanded the boundaries of the latter,
    including in its membership people who divided with her a shelter. However, despite the prospect
    of being so restricted one on one with my life, man, even in conditions of communal life and
    multigenerational family managed to keep a small but not affected by someone else’s private
    eye piece. It is not always found opportunities for its implementation, but reflected in the irregular
    correspondence, stock doors enclosing the room from the common areas and the inevitable
    clash of views, “street racing” is not supervised parental custody. It should be noted that such
    opportunities during the war unlike peacetime became more. Another question: is how much
    they were demand and meet the established way of life at that time?
