For you, at the Front!


Today, as my country, Kazakhstan along with the other Soviet republics concentrated their forces in the fight against the enemy of civilization...

...the bloodthirsty Hitler I'll talk about the young Saule...


Friends, friends...

Listen and think There, in the land of Kazakhstan the pride and glory of my country where the enemy has never set foot near lake Balkhash extracting lead, copper and iron These assets are important to defeat the enemy

Away from the front in a picturesque corner of the Soviet Kazakhstan there is a village of laborers surrounded by mountains rich in lead There lives the young and hardworking Saulé

Saule greets her husband departing for the front He was a disciple of Stakhanov in the mine where he worked


Giamil!


Three months later...


In the last two days our troops have continued to advance and occupied some towns north of the city of N In one day 2000 Nazis were killed A heroic act was committed by a Red Army soldier: borer, Giamil Zaghembaev During an attack in enemy territory he was first to enter the fortress and was surrounded by the Germans But our hero did not lose his nerve He struck a Nazi with the butt of his rifle and he advanced against the machine-gunners who fired on our soldiers In the heat of battle, Giamil killed the German machine gunners and took hostage an officer and two soldiers Then he led them to his military district The heroic act of Giamil Zaghembaev will be honored with an award


My dear...

My love...

Today the radio spoke of your act of heroism I am very proud of you and envy you I too would like to do something useful I'm working in the mine in your place and I can already produce the amount required When I listened to the radio I thought that perhaps the lead that I extracted you had used to strike the enemy

And how to play with the waves and the wind but always it remains in the mind This is your dream small and sweet Saule


Perhaps the lead that I extracted you had used to strike the enemy

As soon as Giamil finishes reading he remembers Kazakhstan his native country He sees it all again...

...from the Volga to the Zajsan...

...from the Siberian plains to the mountains of Tianshan...

There is only one metal that is missing in Kazakhstan a mineral that it is nowhere to be found in its mines Lead, coal, copper, zinc, molybdenum and chromium they are extracted in Kazakhstan And there were discovered natural treasures which are rarely found on our planet

These treasures of the distant Kazakhstan are serving the Red Army serving Giamil, his companions and his Saule

In Kazakhstan's mines Giamil's friends work hard and compete with each other to help the fighters


All the forces of the Kazakh people were mobilized in the fight against the enemy The patriots of the Soviet Union are eviscerating the mountains and pour lead rivers to arm soldiers fighting at the front

Giamil returned with the thought of lake Balkhash

Where before there was desert a gigantic foundry was created here in Balkhash


The sons of Kazakhstan working in the foundries of Balkhash, of Karakaj of Geskakzan, of Irysh

The copper from Kazakhstan is destined for the front

Stalin wanted it to be installed right here the third Soviet foundry


Karaganda miners extract coal day and night and so provide energy to our cities


Giamil turns his gaze to the south Think of the silver waves of the Caspian Sea always rich in fish


On the banks there are oil facilities of Emba These fields extend along a territory of 500,000 square meters Here is the eighth part of the world's deposits of crude oil


We could call it the war of the motors The oil of Emba comes from the the best refineries

We transform Emba into a lethal force against the enemy!

The military power of the country lies in its oil


We reap the grain to fight the Nazis with bread Every grain and a bullet hits the enemy We care for every ear of grain because the grain will help us to kill the enemy Listen, Front! We reap the grain to condemn the Nazis to death Soon... we will celebrate the victory of our people in war

Our fields are fertile Our land also produces sugar For us it is white and sweet but the enemy will be bitter Our warriors fight with fire while we fight with work Listen, Front! We reap the grain to condemn the Nazis to death

Song from the rice fields you go merrily towards the west!

This way the soldier, during the battle will remember his home!

You will feel stronger and will fight with more ardor Listen, Front! We reap the grain to condemn the Nazis to death

Do not spare your energy because victory is not easily obtained We collect the white cotton to use it as a weapon in the war against the enemy With the white gunpowder we will explode the black house of the Nazis Listen, Front! We reap the grain to condemn the Nazis to death Soon... we will celebrate victory

Soon we will celebrate the victory of our people in war


On the land of Giamil the cattle prosper on rich pastures.

During the war more than 3 million are bred


The production of meat, leather, wool and oil is steadily increasing We send everything to the front of which the army has need


Giamil's land provides the red army with robust and fast horses


The Soviet motherland sings and urges its sons to fight We defend our land Our country can count on a nation of heroes The people fought to the death The enemy does not frighten us because we have iron and lead We defend our land Our country can count on a nation of heroes Those who stay at home work for us We are a big family We defend our land Our country can count on a nation of heroes


The tanks and the airplanes engines They are constructed with metals coming from Giamil's region

The material for the front going west The convoys will follow one after another


Dear fighters...

...we offer you our work and our hatred for the enemy

Everything that passes before Giamil's eyes They are what are needed at the front for Giamil, for his friends and for his Saule Saule wrote me from home...

"I'm working in the mine in your place."

"Tomorrow I'll try to beat your last record"


Come here

The second or the third?

The third Come on!


Are you okay?

I included only 43 mines because there is little pressure

43 mines in 4 hours Quite an achievement!

Nikolai Vasilievich? -Yes They added 43 mines in four hours Where? The 11th layer?

It's really good!

43 mines in 4 hours I confirm: 43 mines

It is a new record. It's true We put the 46th mine. Push!
