2013-08 Russia 099

Not far away from the Embankment stands the Stalingradskaya Bitva (Сталинградская битва), or State Historical & Memorial Museum of the Battle of Stalingrad. The inscription on the column to the left reads: ”By the call of Motherland and party the Soviet people came here to defend freedom and honor of the people, the achievements of Great October. Here, on this land, they turned away their fears, made it go from darkness to light, from slavery to freedom, from death to life.”
