ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. The Taimyr Museum of Local Lore research staff accepted another 229 new historical items. Among them are the Nenets poetess, prose writer, translator Lyubov Komarova-Nenyang’s manuscripts, autobiographical stories and documents.
In addition, the museum received documents that previously belonged to Nikandr Yelagin – the writer and journalist had been collecting them for more than 20 years while working on the publication The Arctic’s Brothers.
The book talks about the Dikson defenders and the northern allied convoys of the Great Patriotic War.
“The collection basis is the correspondence with those who served on Dezhnev and Sibiryakov ships, their relatives, journalists and writers who covered the topic of the Dikson’s heroic defense”, the museum’s press office said.
Also, items related to preventive measures during the COVID-19 pandemic were accepted into the fund.
Now the Taimyr Museum of Local Lore has 92,988 items. Museum staff express their gratitude to all donors who help to preserve and study the Taimyr history.
Earlier we told how Dikson celebrated the 80th anniversary of the defense.
