Magic ball (excerpt)
As a magic ball from the fairy tale,
Songs – on all my way.
Walk the trail to the last,
If you want to find me!
12 December 1943
Musa Mostafa uli Jalil (February 15, 1906 – August 25, 1944) was a Soviet Tatar poet. He is the only poet of the Soviet Union who was simultaneously awarded the Hero of the Soviet Union award for his fortitude and heroism shown in captivity, and the Lenin Prize for authoring The Moabit Notebooks; both the awards were awarded to him posthumously in 1957.
Participants of the event expressed their thanks to Lilia Narudinova and Jane Harrison for homemade tatar pastries.
