Book series, published under the auspices of the favorite movement "For Freedom" Milinkevich, who himself studied Grodno past, issued "Vovchynskuyu history" — a book about the last king of the Rzeczpospolita Stanislaw August Poniatowski.
Yuri Gordeev writes that Grodno (such variant names kept creator) "not once get to the page memuarnay literature in the 16th and 17th centuries, but more noteworthy observations about her life left the travelers who visited the city in the 18th century." City since the economic recovery and building of the 18th century just shows more carefully.
Book project coordinator — Paul Mazhejka. It states that the need for such publication series gave a hint of action last year, when Grodno demolished several of old stone buildings, including one — of the 18th century.
Mazhejka: "We decided to show that we — the city that has democratic traditions, and this city, the loveliest in Belarus. And they began specifically with this volume — with "Magdeburg Grodno" to assure the relevance and significance of this town. This book has a special walk or trip to Grodno squares, streets and getting to know people, their faces.
We are still very fundamental goal — is, in a sense, the integration of people, Grodno, who care about the fate of the town’s historic heritage. And so the greatest number of people directed attention to the fact makingsmiling in the town, at least became interested in the fact that in the town of endangered historic buildings, urban perspective changes, killed the spirit of historic, typical of Grodno. "
