February 23, World Chechnya Day
No one and Nothing is Forgotten!
Winter of 1944
Like an extreme blade
In these years
Summer never arrived
Wounds of my bleeding heart have never healed Time is an eternity
But not a cure to forget
Our way and 13 years in Siberia!
February 23, 1944 is the most tragic date in the history of the Chechen-Ingush (Waynakh) people.
On February 11, 1943, the Politburo, the Communist Party’s ruling executive committee (Political Bureau of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union), discussed the idea of “liquidating” the Chechen-Ingush Autonomous Republic and deporting the entire Chechen-Ingush nation based on the accusation of “collaboration with the Germans”. This was declared despite the fact that “between 1941 and 1944, more than 40,000 Chechens fought in the Red Army,” and “450 people with arms in their hands fought against the Soviets”.
