Stalingrad itself caused the death of more than 250.000 German soldiers; the human sacrifice of the Soviet Union is estimated at half a million.
This incomprehensibly great number of destroyed life-histories with its devastation in the individual memories of millions of relatives, the trauma of the German attack, the appalling devastation by the Wehrmacht were not able to develop a strong Soviet identity in accordance with the wishes of the rulers of the state.
Stalingrad as a place of remembrance represents the core of this heroic remembrance: a heroic memorial complex, one kilometer long, and crowned by a 90 meter-tall statue of Mother Homeland.
