Setting as an example the mournful lessons of the past, we must not allow the recurrence of such scenarios and follow the path of evolutionary development. A strong basis for this is the article by President Nursultan Nazarbayev "A Look into the Future: Modernizing Public Consciousness." Within the framework of the implementation of the article, much work is being done to strengthen the national historical unity.
Only in this way, preserving the memory of the past, we can pay the debt of respect to those who in the most difficult years did not reconcile with injustice and terror, who managed to remain human in inhuman conditions, "Mukhambetov said opening the rally.
