Pioneer Heroes

The images of pioneer heroes were actively used in the Soviet Union as examples of high morals. The official list of pioneer heroes was issued in 1954 [1] with the compilation of the Book of Honor of the Vladimir Lenin All-Union Pioneer Organization; The books of honor of local pioneer organizations joined it.

Pioneer Heroes


The first mention of pioneers-heroes appears in 1920. The press began to publish newspaper notes about the exploits of young "fighters against the class enemy", especially Pavlik Morozov. At the XII Congress of the Komsomol in 1954, the Book of Honor of the Vladimir Lenin All-Union Pioneer Organization was created. Morozov was the first in this book, according to the official version, bravely exposing the crimes of kulaks against Soviet power and killed by them. The second one was Kolya Myagotin, also killed by class enemies. The art description of some of the pioneers, in particular Pavlik Morozov,[2] Grisha Aakopyan [3] and some others included in the "Book of Honor of the All-Union Pioneer Organization" until 1941 is not true. Morozov, according to Yuri Druzhnikov was never a pioneer,[2][4] and other heroes of the 1930s who were killed by class enemies: Kolya Myagotin, Grisha Akopyan (completely fictional character).[clarification needed][3][5]

Olga, Katya, and Andrey have known each other since childhood. They moved to Moscow many years ago and have become successful. Olga is an actress, Katya works for a large-scale PR agency, and Andrey is a political analyst. They buy cars, take mortgages, build country houses. Just like everybody else. But their lives bring them neither happiness nor content. The feeling of "something's not right but I can't put my finger on it" underpins the lives of today's thirty-year-olds. Their childhood took place during the Soviet era, when kids dreamed of becoming heroes, believed in spy stories and a bright future. Yet nobody expected that the dream of becoming a hero would be replaced by the dream of stable and predictable existence. People have stopped dreaming of truly grand things. They just play their roles.

Speaking at the annual Days of '47 sunrise service at the Tabernacle on Temple Square, Elder Porter of the Quorums of Seventy of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, paid tribute to the ordinary men and women whose only heroic deeds came in rising each day to do their duty to God.Much as the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Arlington National Cemetery pays tribute to the soldiers whose bodies could not be identified and represents millions of other unsung military heroes, so should Utahns remember the anonymous pioneer who didn't give up on the westward migration, Elder Porter said.

An estimated 62,000 pioneers came across the Plains between 1847 and when the railroad arrived in Utah in 1869. Some 212 died in the now famous Martin and Willie handcart companies, but thousands more - about one in 10 - died enroute on the oceans and the Plains.

"The trek westward and colonization of the mountains summoned forth greatness from the most ordinary of people and made heroes out of common folk," Elder Porter said. "Sometimes in our desire to praise the heroic deed, to remember the extreme ordeal and the superhuman sacrifice, I fear that we forget about the common, everyday pioneer."

Many who arrived in Utah were not finished with pioneering but were sent to establish outposts throughout the West and on missions for the church across the oceans. Even those who began to make a home in the valley realized the difficulty of the task.

Have you ever daydreamed about being a hero? In the 1800s, the Mormons were forced, because of persecution, murder, and hatred, to leave their homes and move to the Utah desert. It was a long, hard journey, often made by walking the entire distance, but it gave many teenagers the opportunity to become heroes. Their stories are still told today.

Eighteenth-century French philosopher Denis Diderot was the driving force behind the Encyclopédie, one of the first compendiums of human knowledge of its time. The anniversary of his birth has prompted calls for Diderot to receive France's highest honor: have his remains reinterred in Paris' Pantheon, a mausoleum of sorts for France's national heroes.

WPE needs volunteers willing to drive to help meet this need. This can happen in a personal vehicle or one of their fleet vehicles. If you have a little time to spare and a good driving record, they would love to welcome you to their team of food rescue heroes.

As with every modern military, the German Army maintains a large standing force of military engineers. Due to the nature of the Wehrmacht, particular focus was given to their "Pionere", the unsung heroes of Blitzkrieg.

The first and most basic use of Pioneers is Base Building- perhaps the most essential job the unit has. Base Building is simply the construction and maintenance of buildings in your HQ sector- very important given that ultimately all other units and Veterancy are derived from these structures. The Pioneer is indispensable in this regard, and without at least one pioneer focusing on this at every tech level, it's highly unlikely you'll ever win a game. 041b061a72
