Monument to the school students who died in the battles for the Motherland from the generation of the 60s


The monument to the school students who died in the battles for the Motherland during the Great Patriotic War, from the generation of the 60s, is located at the address 33, 13th Park Street. 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 man”) at the 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 were 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, stolen for hard labor. The monument is a trapezoidal stele made of concrete, next to which a live cypress grows. Two sides of one marble board are fixed on the stele. On the front side is the text: “To the students of school No. 344 from the generation of the 60s who fell in the battles for the Motherland.” On the opposite side of the stele: “Be worthy of the memory of the fallen.”
