Yanushkevich and Decembrists

    Celebrated 185 years since
birthday of the Polish revolutionary Adolf
Yanushkevich Mikhailovich, who as
political exile in 1853-1856 he served in the
Nizhny Tagil.

    Active participant in the Polish
armed uprising 1830/31 years, he was
tsarist court sentenced to death
commuted to perpetual exile in Siberia.
Crime for him so cruel punishment
were the following circumstances.

    Lieutenant insurgent army
Yanushkevich was one of the leaders of the Legion
Lithuania, Volhynia and the Ukraine, and his brother Eustace
served as assistant chief of staff housing
commanded by General Samuel Ruzhitsky.
Polish journalist, a member of the events in 1830
Michael Tchaikovsky wrote that Eustace Yanushkevich
although he was not a professional soldier, but showed
outstanding abilities in the organization
offensive operations and personnel in rallying
the detachment.

    Yet these circumstances
were not major in the determination of the investigation
Commission guilt Adolf Mikhailovich. Being
student at Vilnius University, he was a
secret society, the defeated in 1823 by the tsarist
Senator NN Novoseltsev, was arrested, but
released due to the lack of direct evidence in
anti-government activities.

    In the twenties of the last
century, Vilnius and Warsaw University
considered hotbeds of freedom of ideas,
therefore their graduates imperial administration
treated very suspiciously. And disappeared
One important fact incited
scales in favor of the prosecution. Count Chernyshev
reported to the chief political investigation A. Kh
Benkendorf that Adolf Yanushkevich "one
same who also wrote from Warsaw to Vilnius
brother of Eustathius, telling him the
bold judgments about our army and extolling
praises rebels"

    Such people are not saying goodbye to
They are subject to severe measures of exposure. Not
possible that Yanushkevich when he was a student
University, is also suspected of having links with
Decembrists this version put forward
researcher activities exiles
Polish revolutionaries, associate professor KazSU Faina
I. Steklov. The materials for
Nizhny Tagil Museum-Reserve, citing
letter from Krakow, she pointed out that in Yanushkevich
early twenties "was connected to
students with Russian Decembrists". Is this true
it was now difficult to judge because the issue of
contact leaders of the Polish secret societies
Decembrists insufficiently studied deeply. To
Unfortunately, Faina Ivanovna a few years ago
prematurely passed away, without giving us
location of the Krakow letters
confirming its arguments about the connections with Yanushkevich
Russian revolutionaries.

    We know that in their plans
to transform Russia, the Decembrists paid
attention to the future of Poland. MS Lunin believed that
Russian and Poles to unite on
an equal footing. In his view, such a
"alloying" contribute even
natural conditions: "There are no mountains, no rivers, no
no geographic features that could
serve as boundaries for both states"
He argued that "both languages, deriving from
one root, understand with equal ease in
both countries, and it all seemed encourages both
people fraternize". Decembrists sought
broad social transformations in contact with
Poles, but those with more suspicious of
proposals of Russian friends. Conducted in
Kiev, Zhitomir and Warsaw negotiation between them
to anything constructive failed. Extreme
caution Poles, their distrust of
Russian general to have their own sad
famous long history. Can not be ignored
the fact that Russia was
involved in the partition of Poland and the deprivation of her
national independence. In "Russian
truth" PI Pestel spoke out against
granting Russia the right of peoples
self-determination, but he did in this regard
exclusion of Poland. Poles knew about it and were afraid
treachery on the part of the leaders of Russian
secret societies, and in contacts with them were
strictly conspiratorial.

    When the arrests began, a member of
Polish Patriotic Society Prince
Yablonovsky yet issued a Commission of Inquiry
many like-minded people to associate with the
Decembrists. Among them, the name is not Yanushkevich
mentioned, so the assumption of glazing on
his account remains at version.

    But in Siberia Adolf
M. met with exiled Decembrists
and was particularly friendly with Alexander Ivanovich
Odoyevsky, brilliantly educated man,
romantic poet who responded to the message
AS Pushkin’s famous poem "Strings
prophetic fiery sounds", The line is:
"The spark will kindle a flame" subsequently
served as an epigraph to the Leninist newspaper

    Yanushkevich and Odoyevski
met in 1836 in Ishim, settled
together, find common ground in matters of literature,
history, politics and art. Friends all
free time were inseparable, read books and
magazines that were coming to them from Russia from relatives and
friends, discussing the events of the West,
remembered the days of anxious youth, played music
(Alexander played the harpsichord).

    Yanushkevich shared
impressions of his travels around the country
Western Europe, which is committed at the end of
twenties. He said that he visited the south
French city of Avignon and Vaucluse town, visited
at the grave of Laura. The beauty of this young woman
sang the first poet of the Italian Renaissance
Francesco Petrarca. Yanushkevich took there
cypress branch, and shared that with AI
Odoyevsky, who honored the memory of the great Italian
humanist. Odoyevski was so that
touched that he dedicated the poem
Yanushkevich, "share my branch
Cypress from the grave of Laura". This
romantic story is told in articles
Glazing and book "Laura branch"Author
E. Osetroff which somehow turned
cypress branch in oak but still with a large
acorn in the bargain.

    It should be noted that neither
Steklov nor Osetroff not provide estimates of the fact
visit Avignon and Vaucluse Yanushkevich and
keeping their branches, taken in these areas. However,
interest Adolf Mikhailovich to Vaucluse,
I think, there was not an accident. In this town
several years remained in seclusion and wrote his
famous "Kantsonere" Petrarch, who
famous song "My Italy" mourned by
about the fragmentation of their homeland, called for
cessation of civil strife and demanded "The world!
The world! The world!". Undoubtedly, Petrarch was deeply
cute Yanushkevich not only as a poet, and mo
as bright spokesman patriotic and
citizenship ideas.

    Perhaps it is in the Vaucluse
or the tomb of Laura vowed Yanushkevich
to be faithful to the ideas of freedom and cypress branch
became for him a symbol, responded dreams of
better future dismembered and enslaved
Poland. No wonder that he cherished it and
carried through all the years of exile! Can be
confident and strong feelings in those who
cemented his friendship with AI Odoyevsky. Do not be
these feelings if I could share with Yanushkevich
disgraced poet Decembrist the spiritual
value, which was for him
cypress branch?

    Also noteworthy is the
another poem Odoevskogo Dedication
"He also"Where are the following lines:

    You know them, who was so fond of,

    With whom I shared the hour of black?

    Do you know them? Like me, you pressed
them a hand

    And gave me amicably

    My soul is familiar with the old

    Itself raises the question,
who shook hands Yanushkevich with whom led "amicably
conversation"Transmitted to the author of the poetry
lines? We are talking about friends Odoevskogo
Decembrists who lived in Barrow, which
Yanushkevich met in the autumn of 1836, when he went
treated mud. It is known that at this time
Kurgan were in exile, Colonel
Tarutino Infantry Regiment MM Naryshkin,
the captain of the Azov Regiment IF Focht,
Lieutenant VN Liharev, captain
Lifeguards MA Nazimov, lieutenant of the Life Guards
Finland Regiment AE Rosen, Major Vjatskogo
Infantry Regiment NI Lorer Colonel AF
Bryggen. All of them are members of the Northern and Southern secret

    According to the memoirs of NI Lorer
and letters EP Naryshkina shows that in the mid-30s
Naryshkins’s house was the center of Kurgan
cultural life. In their "Scrapbook
Decembrist" AE Rosen reports that the Decembrists
gathered at the Naryshkin on Friday and discussed
policy issues, literature, history, reading
poems, shared memories of previous years. Here
also came and Polish exiles, participants
Uprising 1830/31 period. So, in an environment Yanushkevich
close to him in the spirit of the people that led
"amicably conversation", I think, at the same

    In 1837 Odoevskogo
ive moved the Caucasus and he died soon after, and Yanushkevich
moved to Omsk, where he was destined to write
wonderful book "Diaries and letters of
travel Kazakh steppes", Which became
the first reports on the life of the Kazakhs in the forties
of the XIX century.

    His activities in the Lower
Tagil reported in a large sketch FI Glazing
"Became a second home" ("Taghilsky
working" 30 and 31 March 1978). It should only
add that Yankushevich, took here
participate in the device factory library
tidied and hem in the famous album
Karamzins letter about the last days of life and
circumstances that caused the fatal fight
AS Pushkin, the same letters that were
found in our city in 1956. May be,
thanks to his caring attention they
preserved, served us an invaluable source
information about the great poet.

    Yanushkevich introduced into our
Soviet literature and science specific
contribution, therefore deserves a grateful memory.

Diplomatic Mission

    As with all of our country,
Kazakhstan prepares to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Soviet
power. Its territory before the October
Revolution became part of the Russian Empire.
Joining lands and peoples
