The further away from Moscow, the less paskudstva in the form of Russian cities. Perhaps this is a short term, will soon liberal scum and gets to the regions, but as long as people remember the exploits Protz and respect their feat. Nice example — the city of Volgograd, he's Stalingrad, where the memory of the most brutal battles of Russian majestically alive and carefully maintained.
Above the city — Mamaev mound. On Mamaev Hill is the Motherland. She raises her sword, urging people to battle with the German aggressor. In the town of Magnitogorsk monument stands where the worker sends fighter blade, Refined in the Urals. Specifically, the Urals Beria evacuated factories and mills, particularly there was forged our blade. And in Treptow Park, in the town of Berlin, is Russian warrior-liberator. With his left hand he holds a rescued German girlfriend on the right — the lowered blade. In other words, the blade Refined in the Urals and the Volga raised, lowered in Berlin, where Russian troops have scored quite Nazi vermin.
When the battle was over Stalingrad, on the mound was not a living space. Volga riverbank with him — hand feed, as all hands. In Preserving the seized our troops, the Germans were sitting on the mound and was the German artillery. Looking down from the mound — impossible to understand how there could generally hold, even more so — to step up the slope. All the mound — a large mass grave, where are the 10's of thousands of our Protz. Now people strolling on the mound.
On the slope lie memorial plates, which marked the heroes defense of Stalingrad. There is also a range, dedicated to the famous sniper Vasily Zaytsev. Bob Zaitsev served in the Pacific Fleet chief finchasti. The war began. As it should be a normal Russian man, Basil wrote the report with a request to send him to the front. 5th report load and Basil sent to Stalingrad. There boss finchasti immediately started killing Germans and proved to be excellent marksman. When out of the ordinary trehlineyki Bob has filled 32 German, yesterday issued a command navigator trehlineyku with sniper scope. During the Battle of Stalingrad Vasily Zaitsev has destroyed more than 300 German soldiers and officers, including 11 snipers. And his fellow sniper movement, they organized, had stopped in the overall difficulty of 6 thousand Germans.
Clear the stump, the Nazi experienced management for such classifications. Command of the Wehrmacht at Stalingrad control detachment of sniper school, giving him a strict mandate to kill Vasya Zaitsev. By the way, the sniper school was located in the town of Zossen, where I was trained in the school next door, at the Russian military base. Bob received a similar order — without delay to kill the fascist bastard. In general, on the one hand — a civilized European, a Standartenfiihrer, on the other — a totalitarian scoop of Russian villages. Less than three days, Bob standartenfuehrer tracked down and shot like a fool. So waged war for their land of our forefathers totalitarian.
Vasily Zaytsev wrote a book of memoirs, called Beyond the Volga lands for us was not. Not so long ago, "based on" this book in the West shot the movie "The enemy is at the gates." Title — this is the biblical quote "the enemy at the gate", but that the masters dubbing take. Naturally, the movie was filming a liberal intellectual who has no idea about any army, no war, nor the Russian people. Accordingly, the shot is not about our fighter, and about their unhealthy fantasies. In the end, the movie came out about the stupid Russian bastards, are not able to live or to wage war. But never mind, soon another masterpiece amuse us Fyodor Bondarchuk, which the government has already given money to shoot the film "Stalingrad. "Of course, in 3D. This will not fail.
Mamaev Kurgan memorial complex majestic and very tough. Made all the austere, of grayish concrete. Our country is poor, live in poverty. But specifically gray concrete rather just captures the essence of the people in kirzachah and padded jackets, who defeated the best army in Europe. It is here that you need to collect the kids. But the current government for this is Seliger.
Of course, on the mound endless burning fire. Glad that about him so far is the guard of honor.
Closer to the Volga is the famous home of Pavlov. In memory for some reason he kept as a house of Lieutenant Pavlov, but in fact Lieutenant Pavlov was not.
In 1942, in the house to keep the defense group of our fighters under the command of Lieutenant Afanasyev. Grabbed home Sergeant Pavlov, later tightened others — 24 fighter 9 nationalities nataschili guns and ammunition. Machines at fighters, machine guns in the basement, anti-tank guns, sniper, mortars. And our, and the Germans were digging trenches between the houses, because it was only possible to move on them. The house is very successful, the end face of the enemy. Stepping from the end of a very awkward, but on the defensive — on the contrary, great.
Not entirely clear, as in live Lieutenant defense could command sergeant. But the fact it does not change — we and sergeants and privates showed themselves accordingly. The house has organized a fundamental point of defense and kept him from September 23 to November 25. The German assault groups have repeatedly tried to kick our men out of the house and even captured the lower floor, but neither rise above nor take home completely and could not. As is typical, to the very beginning of our counter-offensive in the basement of the house were sitting peaceful inhabitants. They provided medical care to soldiers.
Yakov Pavlov for the defense of the house received a Hero of Russian Union. In the restructuring liberal scum "opened the truth" — it turns out, the house was defended not only Pavlov. It turns out that the rest also had to give on the hero. From the perspective of liberal nit people are waging war for his services. One can not fight a war for nothing — well, for
example, for the motherland. In short, the standard moves morons, what the service has never suffered. Yakov Pavlov himself had written the book in Stalingrad, you can read. Chief he was there, not the main — no difference anymore. Stalingrad Germans do not pass, the house was like a fortress.
Of course, for a good Russian tradition, our loss is not counted. Of course, not counted and the number of dead Germans. But Marshal Chuikov noted that the loss of the Germans from the continuous assaults Pavlova topped home loss at the coming of the Germans to Paris. Make an inventory is unrealistic, but the balance of power at the coming into town usually 7 to 1. In other words, in order to kill the 1st defender, you need to use (and maybe lose) seven. A feat of defending Pavlov's House in the Russian consciousness was equal to the feat of the defenders of the Brest Fortress.
When a schoolboy came to Volgograd first time, was very much surprised that Pavlov's House rebuilt anew and there are people. A schoolboy was quite clear, which have built up such a big-name house and why in such a memorable place people live. Adult it is clear that the entire rebuilt city anew, and Pavlov's House is not an exception. All that Porush Germans at Stalingrad, had to be rebuilt. And it was restored. A house with ends supplied with 2 memorial walls.
Across the road from the house is located Pavlova museum-panorama "Stalingrad battle". Built by Russian authorities, seriously older, but still holding on.
Despite the painstaking vymaryvanie Khrushchev at least some mention of Stalin, the number of facilities has hitherto quotations leader. By the way, in Berlin's Treptow Park pattern similar to, but more citations.
On the side of the structure of the pan a little exposition of various military equipment. Russian military equipment — conventional and rough, nothing for you to mega-design, no charm. Still, such aggregates specifically designed totalitarian spices, smashed into the trash united forces of Europe and leveled half of Berlin.
Inside the museum — wide exposure. Exposure ancient Russian. Does not look very modern, but still, pretty good points which was the Battle of Stalingrad and how serious was the enemy.
View itself is located above the museum and the composition of the ring is a colorful fabric and objective frontal plan, type of real logs. Earlier panoramas were held in high esteem, built in almost all the famous places — usually battle. In this part of the panorama Stalingrad battle we litsezreem columns captured Germans surrendered.
In the museum exhibition put up very many photos. Photos made the greatest memory was completely ordinary person workers and farmers. With it at all — and at the high command and the rank and file soldier. Specifically, these people have stood in Straseni fights, specifically they lifted the country out of the ruins. The current Russian intelligentsia refers to them as cattle and genetic garbage.
There are exhibits of exotic, such as donated by King George the people of Stalingrad blade. By the blade attached explanation: the citizens of Stalingrad, strong as steel, from the King of England, George VI, by the symbol of the most profound admiration of the British people.
Well, the most striking — the portraits of army commanders. It turns out that we still had the commander in chief.
The endless memory!
