Native Land Of Heroes And Poets

So, with the complete right, it is possible to name Shovgenovsky Region of the republic. It carries the name of the hero of the revolution Mos Shovgenov.

In 1918 he was killed here by the fighters of white Army. In the middle of the 90th years the attempt was undertaken to rename both region and regional centre. But the inhabitants having agreed to return to the centre a historical name Khakurinorhable, have defended the name of the region in memories of those who struggled for ideals of socialism during the revolution and Civil War.

In the centre of the aul Khakurinokhabl there is a bust to the native man, the Hero of the Soviet Union, to the poet Khusein Andrukhaev. In 1941 protecting the Ukrainian village Diaykovo Khusein has made the immortal feat. He has stopped the coming fascists having blown up himself and enemies with last stayed grenade. The rifle of the poet is kept in the museum of the Russian Army in Moscow. His proud answer to the fascists on the offer on delivery in captivity is entered for ever in the history of the Great Patriotic War.

Distinct from the fate of Khusein, not heroic, and faster tragical it is possible to name the fate of another poet Shaban Kubov who was born in Khakurinokhabl. Due to the circumstances which had been usual during the war, the poet in 1943 had left his Motherland together with receding German armies, then he emigrated. He lived in Germany, Turkey, Jordan, France, last 15 years - in city Paterson in USA, where the representatives of adyghean diaspora live.

After 20 years of his death the government of Adygeya has got from the daughter of the poet his poems. The republican book publishing house has issued his collection of poems <My Song> (on Adygeyan lanquage), having acquainted with creativity of the talented poet, scientist, composer, and playwriter with the wide readers' audience.

In 2001 in Adygeya we widely have noted the 100th anniversary birthday of the outstanding poet Akhmed Khatkov native man of Shovgenovsky region. His name was given to the secondary school of aul Khatazhukay on a native land of the poet.

In 1923 there was the historical event for adyghean literature - on the pages of the regional newspaper the verses of Akhmed Khatkov were published on the native language for the first time. Khatkov is not only the founder of Adygeyan poetry but also one of the founder of national school of poetic translation. He had translated on adyghean language Pushkin's poems: "Caucasian Prisoner", "Gipsies", "Poltava" and many of his poems excellently.

The important event in formation of statement of Adygeya was the 1st Congress of Councils of Circassian (Adygh) autonomous region in aul Khakurinokhable on December, 7, 1922. This building is kept up to nowadays. It was restored and on the eve of the 10th anniversary birthday of Adygeya in it there was the constant exposition of a National museum of the republic devoted to a history of formation and development of its statement was developed. A memorial board with bas-relief of the 1st chairman of the Executive Committee of Adygeyan autonomous region Shakhan-Girey Khakurate was established on this monument of a history of our republic, according to the Decree of the President A. A. Dzharimov.

People of Khakurinokhabl keep in memory their native men. They give their names to the streets. They remember about: the director of school Nurbiy Mamyshev, doctor Lubov Kobleva, scientist-archaeologist Pshimaf Autlev, veteran of war Yakub Autlev, scientist-philologist Daut Ashkhamaf Recently the name of native teacher Alexandra losifovna Samoilenko was given to the embankment of the regional centre. She worked at the local school and lived here in 1943-1958. Till now all people of the aul Khakurinokhabl remember this perfect woman-teacher and a woman with capital letter. For A. 1. Samoilenko herselfthe most remarcable was the release of 1954, when her son Valery and his friends Khamed Bagov, Asian Sapiev, Nurbiy Dzhanchatov finished the school. Valery Samoilenko and Asian Sapiev are well known both in Adygeya and Krasnodar territory. V. A. Samoilenko heads the administration of regional centre and he is the president of Association of cities of the South of Russia. A. M. Sapiev heads more than 30 years Sochi Reseach-and-production association of industrial flower-growing and mountain gardening.

We must mention one more name. It is Tutarishchev Batyrby Zuljevich, Doctor of Technique Sciences. More than 30 years he lives and works in Krasnodar. He is a general director of "Krasnodarproektstroy". In 2001 at the European competition "The Best Town Builder" in Paris he got the 1st Prize.

They are: mechine-operators Asian Siyukhov, and Asian Meretukov, and already died milkmaid Nyusya Zharokova and famous bird-worker Aslancheriy Chamokov.
