to teachers and students of school № 152 who died in the Great Patriotic War
The monument is a granite block with uneven edges, resting on a pedestal. A graphic image of a warrior with a grenade and a closed book with two carnations lying on it is engraved on the eastern facade of the polished surface of the slab. In the left part, a dedicatory inscription is made in slotted letters and the names of the graduates of School No. 152 who died in the Second World War are indicated. On the north facade of the slab is a dedicatory inscription: “Remember! Through the centuries, through the years — remember! About those who will never come again, remember!”. The most severe consequences of the Great Patriotic War for the Soviet Union are its human losses – military personnel and civilians, amounting to 26.6 million people. This figure was obtained as a result of extensive statistical research by demographers and the subsequent work (in the late 80s of the XX century) of the state commission for the clarification of human losses. It was published in a rounded form (“almost 27 million people”) at a solemn meeting of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR on May 8, 1990, dedicated to the 45th anniversary of the Victory of the Soviet Union in the Great Patriotic War. The specified number of total human losses (26.6 million people) includes soldiers and partisans killed in battle and died of wounds and diseases, starved to death, civilians killed during bombing, artillery shelling and punitive actions, prisoners of war shot and tortured in concentration camps, underground workers, as well as workers, peasants and employees who were abducted for hard labor in concentration camps.
