Volgograd – the Battle of Stalingrad
There is an inscription in Russian: ”Years and decades will pass by. New generations of people will appear. But grandsons and great-grandsons of the heroes will come to the majestic memorial monument of Great Victory. They`ll come with their children and bring flowers. Here, thinking of the past and dreaming of the future people will (remember) all those who fell ... defending the eternal flame of life”. And they do. Children lay flowers, old men kneel, cross themselves, and shed tears. We saw them.
