“Babushka”

Babushka. Life story of Maria Mitroi, née Covaliov – PDF. format

ICover Maria Mitroi think that the memoirs of my grandmother, Maria Mitroi, are interesting in a way that would span outside the coutry for at least four reasons:

–    it tells the story of two Russian families (Pavlov and Covaliov) whose destines were united at Tulcea;

–    it tells the story of a girl born of Russian blood, but Romanian by everything else, who became fatherless in 1942 during World War II;

–    it tells the story of a wife whose husband was imprisonied by the totalitarian Communist regime, with all their properties taken and no money left to take care of her children and mother;

–    finally, it tells the story of a lovely grandmother who is aged today 82;

About Tudor Vişan-Miu
Sunt un tanar cu preocupari intelectuale. Principalele mele domenii de interes: istoria, genealogia, memorialistica, literatura, lingvistica, economia, politica, filosofia, teologia. Legat de aceste domenii: cred ca nu exista o unica istorie "obiectiva si adevarata", ca fiecare persoană are origini familiale ce merita aflate si ca "o viata capata mai mult sens atunci cand este scrisa". Iubesc cartile. Cred ca a scrie corect in propria limba este o dovada de patriotism (nu am putut-o face in acest profil deoarece Gravatarul nu accepta diacritice - n.m.). Am o viziune social-economica "de dreapta". Cred ca "treburile publice" sunt o chestiune de interes general, dincolo de "partea scandaloasa" ce prea adesea însoteste administrarea lor (care ar trebui facuta de oameni de stat). In privinta formei de guvernamant a Romaniei, sunt sustinatorul unei monarhii constitutionale. Consider democratia si capitalismul cele mai bune sisteme inventate pana acum de catre om. Filosofic, ader la modernitatea clasica. Religios, sunt un crestin fundamentalist si conservator. ”Primeste deci darul meu, care ti-a fost adus, fiindca Dumnezeu m-a umplut de bunatati si am de toate” (Geneza, 33:11)
