Vladimir Gelfand

Vladimir Gelfand was a diarist and Soviet soldier in World War II. He is known as the author of the diaries from the years 1941–1946 which were published in Germany and Russia; the book with the diaries-notices of the officer in the Red Army Vladimir Gelfand: German Diary 1945–1946 – Notations of a Soldier in the Red Army has become the first one, published in Germany. Vladimir Gelfand was the only child in a poor Jewish family. Vladimir’s mother, Nadezhda Vladimirovna Gorodynskaya, was from a low-income family with eight children. In her youth, she earned money by giving private lessons. In 1917, she joined the RSDLP and, as Vladimir mentioned in his biography, took part in the Civil War. In the 1920s, she was expelled from the party with the wording “for passivity”; this saved her from subsequent repressions. Father, Nathan Solomonovich Gelfand, worked at a cement plant in Dneprodzerzhinsk. Unlike his wife, he remained non-partisan. In 1926, in search of a livelihood, the young family moved to the Caucasus.

Vladimir and his parents settled in Essentuki, where his father’s parents lived, but in 1928 returned to Ukraine in the city of Dneprodzerzhinsk, Dnipropetrovsk region. Here, his father worked as a foreman at a metallurgical plant and, according to Vladimir's diaries, was a "drummer". Mother was a teacher in a factory kindergarten. In 1932, she changed jobs. In 1933, the family moved to Dnepropetrovsk. Vladimir's parents broke up, he studied successfully. During his school years he took an active part in public life: he was an editor of the wall newspaper, an organizer of art recitation contests, an agitator-propagandist, joined the Komsomol. After high school, Vladimir entered the Dnepropetrovsk Industrial Workers' Faculty, having managed to study there three courses before the war; the German attack on the Soviet Union interrupted the formation of Gelfand. When enterprises, public institutions and a significant part of the city’s population were evacuated in August 1941, Vladimir moved to Yessentuki, where he settled with his aunt, his father’s sister.

In Essentuki, Vladimir had reservation armor. In April 1942 he turned to the draft board and on May 6 became a member of the Red Army, he was trained at an artillery school near Maykop in the western Caucasus and received the military rank of sergeant. In July 1942, when the Caucasian oil fields became the direct target of the German offensive, Vladimir Gelfand was on the southern flank of the Kharkov Front as commander of the mortar squad; the unit in which Gelfand served retreated with the army to the Rostov area. In mid-July, she was destroyed; as part of a small group of soldiers, Vladimir managed to break out of encirclement and join the units of the 62nd Army under the command of Vasily Chuikov, who fought in Stalingrad. Sergeant Gelfand, being the commander of the mortar squad, was appointed deputy platoon commander for political work, he became a candidate for its members. Towards the end of 1942, hostilities in the Stalingrad region were nearing victory. In December, Vladimir was wounded in the arm and ended up in a military hospital near Saratov, where he stayed until February 1943.

After discharge, he received a referral to the rifle school of officers near Rostov, liberated from the Germans. In the summer of 1943, Vladimir Gelfand managed to re-establish contact with his mother, evacuated to Central Asia. From her letter, he learned that all of his paternal relatives in Essentuki occupied by the Nazis - grandmother, two aunts and two cousins - were killed during an action to exterminate the Jews. Only his father and father’s brother survived, before the Germans arrived, managed to escape to Derbent, crossing the Caucasus ridge. Vladimir underwent a three-month training in the courses of officers and received the military rank of junior lieutenant. At the end of August 1943, he was transferred to the 248th Infantry Division, where he took command of a mortar platoon. In the fall of 1943, the 248th Infantry Division became part of the 3rd Ukrainian Front and took up positions south of Melitopol. At the end of January 1944, Vladimir Gelfand received the rank of lieutenant.

Since November 1943, he became a full member of the CPSU. In the fall of 1943, Gelfand participated in crossing the Dnieper. In early May 1944, part of it crossed the Dniester near Grigoriopol. A new offensive in the southern part of the front led Gelfand in Bessarabia in August 1944. Columns of prisoners of war and captive traitors were found. In the diary, he describes the hatred of the Red Army towards the prisoners in relation to the traitors. In the fall of 1944, his unit was located in Poland east of Warsaw; the diary is filled with notes on meetings with the Polish civilian population. At the beginning of 1945, the Red Army was preparing for two strong offensive operations: an attack on the Vistula-Oder and an attack on East Prussia. To this end, more than 3 million Soviet soldiers were supplied; the battle was to end with the encirclement of Berlin. The Red Army was opposed by the still powerful enemy, ready at the borders of its country for stubborn resistance. On January 12 and

Khondaker Mostaq Ahmad

Khondaker Mostaq Ahmad was a politician who served as the President of Bangladesh from 15 August to 6 November 1975, after the assassination of Sheikh Mujibur Rahman. Ahmad completed his BL degree from the University of Dhaka and entered politics in 1942, he was one of the founder joint secretaries of the East Bengal Awami Muslim League. Ahmad was elected a member of the East Pakistan Provincial Assembly in 1954 as a candidate of the United Front. After the central government of Pakistan dissolved the United Front, Ahmad was jailed in 1954 with other Bengali leaders, he was elected the chief whip of the United Front parliamentary party. But with the promulgation of martial law in the country in 1958 he was arrested by the regime of Ayub Khan. During the 6 Point Movement, Ahmad was once again jailed in 1966. Following his release, Ahmad accompanied Sheikh Mujibur Rahman to the all-parties conference called by Ayub Khan in Rawalpindi in 1969, he was elected a member of the National Assembly of Pakistan in 1970.

At the onset of the Bangladesh War of Independence and Mujib's arrest and other Awami League leaders gathered in Meherpur to form the Government of Bangladesh in exile. Syed Nazrul Islam served as the acting President while Mujib was declared President, Tajuddin Ahmad served as Prime Minister and Ahmad was made the Foreign Minister. In this capacity, Ahmad was to build international support for the cause of Bangladesh's independence, but his role as the Foreign Minister became controversial as he wanted a peaceful solution, remaining within Pakistan in line with the Six Point Charter of his leader Sheikh Mujib. Zafrullah Chowdhury alleges that Ahmad did not act alone in this regard and that Awami League leaders were involved. After the liberation, Ahmad was appointed as the minister of power and flood control in 1972 as part of the Second Sheikh Mujib cabinet. In 1973, he took charge of the ministry of commerce in the Third Sheikh Mujib cabinet, he was a member of the executive committee of Bangladesh Krishak Sramik Awami League formed in 1975.

Sheikh Mujib and all members of his family were assassinated by a group of army personnel on 15 August. Ahmad took control of the government, proclaiming himself as the President. Major General Ziaur Rahman was appointed as Chief of Army Staff of the Bangladesh Army, replacing K M Shafiullah, he praised the killers of Sheikh Mujibur Rahman calling them Shurjo Shontan. Ahmad ordered the imprisonment of leaders Syed Nazrul Islam, Tajuddin Ahmad, A. H. M. Qamaruzzaman and Muhammad Mansur Ali, he replaced the national slogan of Joy Bangla with Bangladesh Zindabad slogan and changed the name Bangladesh Betar to'Radio Bangladesh'. He proclaimed the Indemnity Ordinance, which granted immunity from prosecution to the assassins of Mujib. Mujib's daughters Sheikh Hasina Wazed and Sheikh Rehana were barred from returning to Bangladesh from abroad. BAKSAL and pro-Mujib political groups were dissolved. On 3 November, in what became infamously known as the "Jail Killing Day", the four imprisoned leaders Tajuddin Ahmad, Syed Nazrul Islam, A. H. M. Qamaruzzaman, Muhammad Mansur Ali, who had refused to co-operate with Mostaq, were killed inside Dhaka Central Jail by a group of army officers on the instruction of President Khondaker Mostaq Ahmad.

However, Ahmad was ousted from power on 6 November in a coup led by Khaled Mosharraf and Shafat Jamil. Ahmad was imprisoned by Brigadier General Khaled Mosharraf and by the Ziaur Rahman administration until 1978. Upon his release, he formed Democratic League and attempted to resuscitate his political career, but to no avail, he spent his last years in Dhaka and died on 5 March 1996. Ahmad was named in the investigation of the murder of Sheikh Mujib launched in 1996 by his daughter Sheikh Hasina, who had just won the national elections to become Prime Minister of Bangladesh. Hasina blamed Ahmad for her father's death. Due to his death, he was not tried. Historians and critics assert, he is criticized by Bangladeshi liberal public for legitimizing political murders by protecting Mujib's killers
