Historical and revolutionary memories have always been at the forefront of political and scientific criticism. Their use is associated with the need to overcome not only the subjectivity of the author, but also inaccuracies and gaps in the narrative. At the same time, this type of historical sources has great potential for understanding the past, since it can go beyond the usual set of facts, official discourse, and traditional interpretations. Storchakov’s speech at the evening of memoirs of the participants of the Civil War at the Club of Political Convicts on October 11, 1931 in Dnepropetrovsk became the subject of research and interpretation with the involvement of other sources — participants in events, synchronous documents, as well as reference materials.
