Monument to I. Yesenberlin

(Atbasar district)

Great Kazakh writer, author of the historical trilogy “Nomads”. Ilyas Esenberlin was born on January 10, 1915 in Atbasar in the family of a carpenter. Spiritual strength and spiritual wealth “merged” in Ilyas’s mind even in early childhood. The formation of the personality of the future writer was greatly influenced by his communication with the famous akyn Kambay, who sang beautifully and played a dombra and knew a great many old traditions and fats. Long hours akyn “caressed the ear and soul of a little boy and his aulchan.” It was from Kabaia that Ilyas heard about Asan Kaygy and Bukhar Zhyrau, Yedige and Koblandy, Kenesary, the heroes of his future novels. This little-known akyn managed to transfer the spiritual accumulation accumulated over centuries to the future writer. Ilyas and his brother Ravnak were orphaned early, their parents died during the epidemic of smallpox. My brother was sheltered by relatives, and nine-year-old Ilyas became a homeless child. Weakened, sick, almost dying of hunger, he was identified in an orphanage. And then there was study at the workers’ faculty, and then at the Almaty Mining and Metallurgical Institute, which he graduated in 1940. While studying at school, Ilyas showed amazing mathematical skills: he was able to quickly analyze and systematize various events and events, and besides, he was very fond of and well-versed in Kazakh folklore, enjoyed reading world literary classics, painted and loved horses. By nature, he was cheerful and optimistic, had a strong will, great patience and phenomenal memory. In the first days of the Great Patriotic War, Ilyas was mobilized to the front. At the end of 1943 Esenberlin was seriously wounded and spent almost a year in the hospital. Returning to Alma-Ata, he, in spite of warnings, married the daughter of the writer, comrade S. Seifullin, who was declared “the enemy of the people” and shot in 1937. Since that time, the persecution of Ilyas Esenberlin by the authorities began. At first he was removed from work, and then a criminal case was opened. Condemning the writer for 10 years, he was sent to certain death – the construction of the Karakum Canal. “Heat, hunger, disease and unbearable labor mowed people like grass,” says Kozykorpesh, the son of Yesenberlin. “My father was rescued by the fact that he was a mining engineer and led a responsible site – blasting …” After Stalin’s death, Ilyas Yesenberlin was released, rehabilitated, and he and his wife went to work in the Semipalatinsk region for mines. Ilyas Bensberlin began to write while in the war. His first poetic works were published in 1945. But only in the postwar period, he realized that literary creativity is his vocation. Having moved to Alma-Ata and got a job as an ordinary editor in the publishing house of fiction, Ilyas began work on his first novel, The Song of Man. Later Esenberlin moved to the film studio, where he was among his close friends Kapan Satybaldin, Shaken Aimanov, Olzhas Suleimenov and other famous masters of art and literature. At the film studio, he edited many films, wrote dozens of screenplays and plays, but, by his own admission, he could not become a professional playwright. Great attention was paid to the writer’s study of the history of his people. He studied scientific monographs, visited archives, carefully and painstakingly studied the original sources. There was a continuous process of accumulation and processing of material for the first conceived historical novel. And in 1965, in just three months, Esenberlin wrote the first book of his famous trilogy “Kahar”, and soon the whole trilogy, giving it a new name – “Nomads”. The pain for their homeland, for their people – this is the feeling that contributed to the writer’s deep penetration into the historical past of his country. It is no accident that the writer’s son says: “In my father I saw a true patriot.” After the trilogy “The Nomads” historical works were created “The Golden Horde”, “The Dangerous Crossing”, novels on the themes of the present “Golden Bird”, “Fight” and many others. The works of Ilyas Esenberlin differ in the significance of the problems raised and in the boldness of their decisions, in the coloring of the characters they have drawn. He managed to rethink in them a seemingly familiar material. Ilyas Esenberlin died on October 5, 1983 from a heart rupture. On the day when his son brought him a newly published five-volume work of his works.
The opening of the monument is timed to the 100th anniversary of the writer, celebrated within the framework of UNESCO. The author of the monument is the sculptor, member of the Union of Artists of the Republic of Kazakhstan Ivan Leonidovich Sedletsky. The sculpture is made of bronze at JSC “Kamkor-Lokomotiv”, a height of 2.5 meters, is installed on a pedestal of red-brown granite with a height of 3 meters. Territory (25×40 m) is landscaped (flower beds, paving stones).
