The boy who lived in the Government House and predicted the outbreak of war and other political events (6 photos)
Lyova Fedotov is a man who, being a student, predicted the beginning and end of the Great Patriotic War.
As well as other political events.
On June 5, 1941, when he was 18 he would write in his diary
“Thinking that Germany would not wait long by stationing her troops near our border, I gained confidence that the summer of this year in our country would be turbulent. I think that the war will begin either in the second half of this month, or at the beginning of July, but not later, because Germany will strive to end the war before frost. I am personally firmly convinced that this will be the last brazen step of the German despots, since they will not defeat us before winter. Victory is victory, but what we can lose in the first half of the war is a lot of territory, it’s possible.
That is, the entire leadership of the country tried to refute the idea of a war, but he knew in advance!
Then he writes every day about his thoughts, and on June 22 it is clear from the diary that he himself was horrified by his prophecy. In July, he predicted which cities the Nazis would capture, he wrote about Leningrad as follows: “I am firmly convinced that the Germans will not see Leningrad. If the enemy takes him too, it will be only when the last Leningrader falls. As long as the people of Leningrad are on their feet, the city will be ours!”
It’s scary to think how accurate he wrote.
Barbarossa’s plan was described to him almost in detail in May.
Lev Fedotov lived in the Government House, which I wrote about yesterday, on the 1st floor, in apartment 262, which no longer exists. His parents met in America in an underground revolutionary organization.
His mother and father were even in prison there. Mother was in a temporary prison, which was located in the lower floors of the Statue of Liberty.
In 1933, his father died in Altai under strange circumstances, where he was sent on party business.
Leo is remembered in his works by Yuri Trifonov and Mikhail Korshunov, with whom he studied at school. Just in the school where Rachmaninoff taught and where his piano stood (I also wrote about this).
By the way! Leva played the same piano: he studied music, all his friends compared him with Giuseppe Verdi, wrote stories, drew beautifully, was fond of everything around. He was very developed and was in a hurry all the time, as if he knew that he would die at the age of 20.
“From his boyhood years, he rapidly and passionately developed his personality in all directions, he hastily absorbed all the sciences, all the arts, all books, all music, the whole world, as if he was afraid of being late somewhere.”
This is what Yuri Trifonov writes about him in 1977. By the way, if you read The House on the Embankment, then there is Anton Ovchinnikov, whose personality was written off from Lev Fedotov.
Still noted that he was not like the others, and in winter he went in shorts, a light jacket and no hat!
There are very few diaries of Leva Fedotov, about 6, but information is circulating on the Internet that it seems like in the 90s they found other diaries that Lyova wrote and hid specially before evacuation in the basements of the house, since in them he predicted the non-communist future of the Soviet Union and just scared.
I will also tell you about the dungeons of the House and Temple of St. Nicholas the Wonderworker, which is nearby, if you are interested.
Mikhail Korshunov in his novel “Leva Fedotov’s Diary and Stories about Himself” writes a lot about how they studied the cellars of the church and tried to find a way to the Kremlin. Leva also went with them, and in his diaries he told everything in detail, even verbatim their conversations.
Despite the fact that he had poor eyesight, did not hear well, suffered from tuberculosis, he went to war as a volunteer in 43 and died at the age of 20 in a penal company in the Tula region.
His mother, Rosa Markus, died in 1987 and told Mikhail Korshunov a lot about her life. He recounts everything in the book.
The predictions of Lev Fedotov are still being discussed and they call him our Nostradamus.
His diaries, which were allegedly found in the 90s, even seem to predict the crisis of 2009???? But there is little information, rather more gossip.
