  • Description

    During the third day of the Communist Party's 24th Congress, on Monday (1 April), debates on the Central Committee Report occupied much of the programme, but only until the youth divisions of the party took over proceedings with a special presentation of poems and songs.

    We regret we were unable to obtain a sound-track to accompany this film.

    SYNOPSIS: The Kremlin in Moscow, venue of the Communist Party's 24th Congress, where youth of the Party ....representing many divisions....assembled on Monday to take their part on the agenda.

    It was the third day of the Congress, and, with the arrival of the youth, debating of the Central Committee's Report was put aside for the time-being as "pioneer" poems were read to the leaders and delegates.

    The Kremlin's Palace of Congress echoed with applause for the Party's young people, who later embarked on their programme of songs with renewed enthusiasm. Many of the songs bore witness to the efforts of Soviet parents who "work for the Party to save their children from the horrors of war, and keep them happy and healthy." Described by delegates as "Young Leninists", the young people all wore red ties to Congress.
