The Hermitage as it was during the years of the Siege
02.04.2004 12:01

Exhibition of books from the museumís Research Library On 25 January an exhibition was opened in a former bomb shelter assigned to the State Hermitage. The exhibition tells the story of the museum during the years of the Siege of Leningrad, 1941-1944. It features documentary footage about the life and work of Hermitage staff during the Siege.

Scanned reproductions of drawings by A.S. Nikolsky, an architect who lived in one of the museum shelters, show what Leningrad and the Hermitage looked like during those days, both as seen from the outside and inside the museum. Within the Fieldmarshal's Hall of the Winter Palace, a large screen displays the multimedia computer program developed by the School Center and dedicated to those who saved the museum's treasures during the war years. The museum's Research Library has created a book display in tribute to the heroism of Hermitage staff. The exhibition also shows original siege-era film footage .

To mark the 60th anniversary of the complete lifting of the Siege of Leningrad, the State Hermitage in conjunction with the Mariinsky Theater and Hermitage Bridge Studio have prepared a major program that includes issuance of a number of scholarly and popular-science publications, concerts, and other events.

The exhibition is open to the general public from 27 January through 7 February daily except Mondays. Documentary viewings are held at 12.00, 14.00, and 16.00. For invitations, please contact the administrator in the Main Lobby. The entrance to the exhibition is from the Small Entrance.
