On February 06, 2024, students of group 4318 of the military department «Semey Medical University» under the guidance of senior lecturer Lieutenant Colonel of the reserve medical service Smailov N.S. In order to raise the patriotic spirit , spiritual and moral education for exemplary educational purposes, we visited the Alash Museum.

To the city complex The State Historical, Cultural and Literary Memorial Reserve-Museum of Abai includes the house-museum «Alash arystary – M. Auezov». During their visits to Semipalatinsk, Abai and his sons stayed in this house. In the 20s, M. Auezov, J. Aimautov, M. Dulatov lived here.

Looking at him, you seem to be transported to another era, when the great representatives of the Kazakh people tried to create an independent state – national autonomy. The left–bank part of the city, Zarechnaya Slobodka, was renamed the city of Alash, the temporary capital of the new state.

The families of Alash-Orda figures Alikhan Bokeikhanov and Mirzhakyp Dulatov lived in the house of Aniyar Moldabayev. Mirzhakyp’s daughter Gulnar wrote about this in her memoirs “Alashtyn sonbes zhuldyzdary: «In 1921-22, my father worked in the provincial court, we lived on Komissarskaya Street in a private two-story house of Aniyar Moldabayev (later it became the Abai Museum)».

We, the Dulatovs, lived on the top floor, and Alikhan ata (Bukeikhanov) lived on the ground floor.

The museum houses photographs and objects of Mukhtar Aezov dating back to his Semipalatinsk period.

The exhibition presents the issues of the newspaper «Kazakh», which was published in Orenburg. Mukhtar Auezov, Zhusipbek Aimautov, the first collection of Abai. By publishing newspapers, Kazakh intellectuals awakened national consciousness, the spirit of the people.

By special order of the museum, the metropolitan sculptor Toleugazy Baigaliev made figures of Alashevites from wax – Alikhan Bukeikhanov, Akhmet Baitursynov, Mirzhakyp Dulatov, Mukhtar Auezov and Shakarim Kudaiberdiyev. We gave him various photographs of figures of the Alash movement. And much more about the great figures of Alash.

We, students of the 4318 group, are once again grateful to the teacher of the lieutenant colonel of the reserve medical service, N.S. Smailov, for such an opportunity to visit such a culturally important place and learn more about the great figures of Alash. Special thanks to the Alash Museum and their staff.
