Changing of the Guard:
This is the Hall of Military Glory which is in the center of a memorial ensemble dedicated to the heroes of the battle of Stalingrad. The walls of the circular building are covered by plaques with the names of the casualties engraved on them. A ceremonial guard stands 24 hours a day at this place. Fresh flowers are arranged here all year around. They are brought here by people from all over the world. This photo of the "changing of the guard" was taken in 1996. In the middle of the Hall of Military Glory is a large sculptured hand with a torch of eternal flame, the symbol of everlasting memory for those who gave their lives for peace and freedom.
