The White Cranes literary evening was held in the Moscow House of Nationalities in memory of all those who died in combat. The holiday is annually celebrated in Russia on October 22, but it is known all over the world. The moral and ethical basis of the holiday was laid by Dagestani People’s Poet Rasul Gamzatov - the author of the well-known poem 'The Cranes', which later became a song.

On this evening, the guests of the event saw energetic national dances and theatrical performances based on Rasul Gamzatov's works, listened to songs with lyrics by the great Dagestani poet.
