Memorial tablet to poet Daniil Kharms open in St.-Petersburg

A memorial tablet has been open on the house where the famous Russian poet and writer Daniil Kharms lived. The opening ceremony is timed to the 100th anniversary since his birthday. In the granite tablet by the poets portrait one can see a line of his verse: A man goes out of home that is associated with his biography.
      In 1941 the writer left his St.-Petersburg apartments forever, was arrested by People's Commissariat of Internal Affairs and later starved to death in prison in blockade Leningrad.
      For many years Kharms name was obliterated from the Soviet literature. Only in the late 1950s the poet was posthumously rehabilitated and his books resumeed being published and plays being staged.
