The Great Patriotic War of 1941 – 1945 was terrible, heavy and bloody. It was special, it was about the life and death of the entire Soviet people, so everyone participated in the war, and not only on the front line. The main leitmotif of the event is the motto “Nobody is forgotten. Nothing is forgotten … “, a remarkable tradition that should become a tradition in the life of the younger generation of our city, the country. Our duty is not to forget those to whom we owe our today’s peaceful day, to try to be like them. One such person is a retired lieutenant colonel, a military intelligence officer, the commander of the Chapaev partisan detachment, Kasym Kaisenov, a man of astonishing fate, who was able to tell about his comrades-in-arms, about the contribution of children of a military age to victory over the enemy. The participants of the event met with the biography of K. Kaisenov, watched the documentary film “Partisan Kasym Kaysenov or just Vasya”, filmed in 2002 by the Kazakhfilm National Company of Shaken Aimanov. When reading the excerpts from the book “The Boy Behind the Enemy Lines,” the children learned about the feat and fate of the young partisans Misha Gaman and Serik Merginbaev, whom K. Kaisenov met while performing a special assignment to join the famous hero of the Patriotic War S. Kovpak. The story of the ten-year-old partisans is a story about the fate of a whole generation of children, whose share was “military childhood”. In conclusion, a review of K. Kaisenov’s works was conducted, many of which were translated into Russian, Ukrainian and other languages. They accurately describe the most difficult periods of the Great Patriotic War, the selfless heroism of ordinary soldiers and partisans.
