We present to your attention a new historic-cutural book authored by a famous historian and public figure, Deputy Director of the Mykolaiv Regional Museum of Local History, Candidate of Historical Sciences Valerii Cherniavskii. These days the book was presented to the public at the museum.
The area of Temvod is considered mysterious and is increasingly attracting the attention of citizens. The historical essay of the Mykolaiv scientist acquaints you with the history of this territory during existence of the Temvod plant on it, the workers' settlement, a camp for prisoners of war during the Second World War. Today it is a wasteland almost in the center of the city. During the presentation, Valerii Cherniavskii spoke about the idea of creating the book, his work in the archives and in the regional scientific library on historical materials - it turned out that not many of them have survived. The meeting was also attended by those who knew another Temvod which was full of life. Charitable donation for the publication of the book was provided by publisher Anna Rumiantseva and philanthropist Vladyslav Chaika; the participants of the event thanked them for the help.
City public libraries received publications as a gift. Central City Library named after M.L. Kropyvnytskii and its branches congratulate the author on the book release and express their sincere gratitude for the gifts!
