Not far from Volgograd there is an unusual military memorial cemetery in Rossoshka. This is a place of bloody fighting and massive human losses during the Stalingrad battle. Two cemeteries were created there in 1999. Soviet soldiers were buried on one side, with soldiers of the Wehrmacht on the other.
In the centre of the Soviet soldiers’ memorial, you will see the figure of a woman with a bell in her hands. The bell is silent. Forever a mournful silence has settled in these places.
Here you will be able to pay a tribute to entombed soldiers. This is a place where more than 48 thousand victims from various mass graves found their last shelter. The names of 120 thousand victims, missing and those whose place of death could not be established, are listed on the nameplates made of natural stone.
Across the road from a Soviet memorial cemetery, you will see the military cemetery of German soldiers. The maintenance and care of this cemetery are carried out through donations and voluntary funds of German citizens.
The Soldier's field is covered with a feeling of bitterness and pain. This is a place of enormous human losses.
You will be able to see what was extracted from the Stalingrad land after the battles. The "Bouquet" made out of the shards, will always remind us of that terrible time, a terrible battle for our country.
You will also find a fragile figure of a girl, and the triangular letter with the words of her father inscribed on it: "My dark-eyed Mila! ... Sending you a cornflower. It was torn away by the blast wave, and if I had not picked it up, it would have been trampled... Papa Dima will fight the fascists until the last breath so that the Nazis would not treat you the same way as this flower..."
Finally, you will see the field after the demining 15 tractors, resembling the 15 fraternal republics of the Soviet Union. The ploughs of those tractors are still standing at the edge of the arable land.
