The center of the composition is a monument by Soviet sculptor Yevgeny Vuchetich: a 13m tall monument of a Russian soldier holding a child, with a sword over a broken swastika. Vuchetich's inspiration for the monument was an occasion upon which Nikolay Masalov, a Soviet soldier, saved a German girl. After the collapse of the Soviet Union and especially when the monument was dismounted during German reunification, rumors persisted that this episode was nothing but Soviet propaganda. However officially confirmed documents exist that substantiate at least 5 cases when Russian solders delivered small German children to orphanages during the Battle of Berlin.
