Mamayev Hill Monuments in Volgagrad (Stalingrad):
These are monuments at Mamayev Hill in Volgograd (Stalingrad), Russia, my city of origin. This is the place where the Soviet army defeated Hitler's army on the eastern front during World War II. It overlooks the city. The figure in the background is the "Motherland" statue. It is about 200 feet high and stands on the peak of Mamayev Hill. There, the battle raged more than 5 months while the front moved about over this hill. There were over a million casualties. The city was totally destroyed. Every building now in Volgograd is no older than this battle.
