As addressed with party “ small screws “?
Already in the evening of life will often come back Lyolya in thoughts in Likhobora`s family 30 - x years, to pre-war Stalin Moscow, by that unforgettable time when poor, half-starved boys and girls began to build new classless society under biting slogans of a way to socialism. By miracle having survived after civil war and incredibly difficult 20 - x, they entered new decade with huge thirst of knowledge and a labor of love.
The low, nice little girl Lyolya Kruglova, with big gray eyes on spiritual features with thin lines, surprisingly similar to the father - the chorister of church, having graduated from collective-farm school to Medvedkovo, decided to continue education and together with girlfriends submitted the application to medical technical school. But it turned out that with receipt they were late, and returned to the upset girls documents. Having incidentally learned about an additional set in geodetic technical school, young Muscovites rushed there, and to big pleasure unexpectedly accepted them.
Life half-starving, on purely symbolical grant forced girls to look for additional earnings. Also Lyolya Kruglova living together with the married sister, her two kids and mother decided to earn additionally. Classes in technical school were given in the evenings, and it was possible to work in some office in the afternoon. The brother Lyoli, Alexander working as the chief of the Art. Vladykino Moskovska of the District railroad will help it to get a job the clerk on Likhobora`s station, but soon itself will die in 36 years as a result of accident.
There will be a girl without support, but it will be inquisitive and very capable in the doctrine. She will continue work on transport, will finish perfectly well 2 - x year courses of training of persons on duty on station and will be given assignment at the place of residence to Vladykino`s station. To it will sew free of charge (as a gift) by the size regimentals (a suit and an overcoat) that will be a subject of envy of youth in Likhoborakh and Vladykino. Boys adored the pretty gray-eyed girl playing with them in soccer and at the same time such purposeful …
Small, fine in the accurate suit, with a radiant look of fine gray eyes, Lyolya will become a love subject for many young men in Vladykino. For admirers she was a symbol of modern times, and they, hoping secretly for reciprocal feeling, met her by crowd after work, gave armfuls flowers. Selflessly Lyolya worked - the Moscow channel - Volga was under construction at this time, and through Vladykino`s station there were construction materials with further transfer on the Savyolovsky line on the station of Beskudnikovo. The diligent person on duty was noticed soon and in 1936 directed to advanced training courses.
After the successful end and delivery of all examinations perfectly well Lyolya will be appointed the deputy chief of Lefortovo station. It was then 23 years. It looked very young, but the name of the competent expert already rattled on all road. Lyolya will be invited to a position of the assistant to the person on duty in management of Moskovska of Okruzhnaya Road, and here she will get acquainted with future husband.
As the chief of the road Z. P. Troitskaya, in the past the first woman - the driver worked at this time, she also will appoint in 1939 Lyolyu the chief of St. White stone where once the girl began the career by the person on duty on station and where her brother Alexander died. There was in its vital sky then no cloudlet but only love and interesting work. Unless she could expect then that in only one and a half years she should leave the hometown forever?
Her chief paid attention to the interesting young man, the perspective expert, the groom of the girl to Lyolya`s trouble too and began to render it attention signs. Only the young man was fascinated by the tiny blonde with radiant gray eyes and chose her in the companion of life. This love story will define their future and will throw in one of the Baltic republics which joined the USSR in 1940.
Both of them will be included in lists of the experts recalled on restoration of the railroads in the new republics. They should hand over, just received, the apartment and to go to the city of Vilnius (Vilno). Small “ party small screws “ went to Lithuania with hope to quickly restore work on the railroad and to return to Moscow. But big party small screws, laughing in soul at naive youth, knew that it goes until the end of the life, and contracts - obligations according to which have to provide them upon return housing and restore a registration - fiction.
In March of 1941 Mr. Lyol gave birth to the son Alexander, and in three months with mother and the newborn went to Vilnius. To know then that only three weeks later the Great Patriotic War will begin! They should save the lives, but will be able to save the firstborn Lyol - the splinter of the become torn bomb will wound the kid in a temple, and poor mother in convulsions will be killed.
It will return to severe military Moscow, but there was very hungry, and it is necessary to it at once after the delivery daughters to come to work. She will be confirmed to the post of the deputy chief of Rostokino station, however with food it was bad. The help will come unexpectedly - unexpectedly from station White stone where Lyolya before war by the chief worked and arranged there in poor time a sweet table for women and their children on 8 - e March. Inhabitants White stone remembered kindness and geniality of the little chief, invited to station and in each house presented with food, and then brought also potato.
At the end of war the little woman hoped that it, pregnant, will leave in Moscow, very much hoped … But who then was considered with “ small small screws “ great party? As soon as Vilnius is freed, them will force to return there, having again promised gold mountains. And pregnant Lyolya, with two babies on hands will go to others, unfriendly city in which Poles and Jews lived at that time, the city appointed to become the capital of Lithuania.
Also wearisome labor everyday life will begin for them: she is a train dispatcher, he is a driver at night and the chief of supply of the road in day. In 1945. they will be rescued only by a case - the bomb will get to the house where there was their empty apartment. In 1962. The Lithuanian road will be disbanded, uniting with Latvian and Estonian, and forty-eight-year-old Elena Nikitichna Kruglova will go to Moscow to try to obtain justice, having taken with herself all the awards and documents for sending.
It will go on offices of the Soviet vessels and ministries, demanding to provide it, the radical Muscovite, an opportunity to return home according to the contract of sending. In reply to it will laugh in a face and to explain that now the policy of the party is directed to attraction to Moscow of national shots from Federal republics. It will return upset to Lithuania to live the remained days near same as it “ small screws “ thrown out on a roadside of foreign national states.
Several years later Elena Nikitichna will arrive to the daughter to Lviv and learns, as there remained forever “ small screws “ - the experts recalled from Moscow and other large Russian cities for recovery of the economy of the western Ukraine. When one of such “ small screws “ Moscow born and bred, will try to register to the lonely and sick mother in Moscow, to him will suggest to get divorced from wife, but ideological party members did not afford such liberties.
Small “ party small screws “ will not wait in the remained life of gratitude and justice for the heavy labor of love. They will die in the foreign land, and graves will not be ashamed to profane them, ranking as hated invaders.
