60th Anniversary Of Zoya Kosmodemyanskaya's Feat

A historic-patriotic action devoted to the 60th anniversary of Hero of the Soviet Union Zoya Kosmodemyanskaya's feat is being held in the Tambov region (Central Russia). Zoya Kosmodemyanskaya, a 16-year old schoolgirl from Moscow, voluntarily joined a partisan detachment in 1941 when the Nazi forces mounted an offensive in the direction of Moscow. She was taken prisoner while on an assignment. Nazis brutally tortured Zoya in order to get some information on the partisan detachment. They failed to achieve their aim and hung Zoya in public in Petrishchevo village. With a loop about her neck she shouted to the Nazis, "You'll never hang us all!" Her words became a pithy saying. A parade of students of Tambov military institutes and schools was held by the monument to Zoya Kosmodemyanskaya in Tambov (Zoya's native town) on Thursday. The events to honour her memory were held in the Novodevichye cemetery (a historic memorial in Moscow) where the national heroine was buried and in Petrishchevo village where she was tortured to death.
