Stalingrad 1942/43 - Volgograd 2013 (VII)



A return to the city.

"Residents who returned to the city were forced to live in the cellars of the destroyed buildings, in dugouts and in the workshops of the restored enterprises."





Demining of Ogaryova Street.

"In the photo you can see one of the surviving houses. This is the House of Loaders."





The Universal store. [View (?)] from the ruins of the hotel "Bolshaya Stalingradskaya".





The Universal store and the resurgent city.





Arsenyeva Street, the house #6. Red Army soldiers convoy captive Germans.





Children of Stalingrad near the destroyed school building.

After this post by Rasen, I thought why shouldn't I post photos of other cities of Russia



I signed up for the Kursk City / Город Курск account on the Russian social network and that's what I saw there

All picture-postcard nice.

You know me, the consumate historian. In post #41, "Arsenyeva Street, the house #6. Red Army soldiers convoy captive Germans": the Red Army soldier is armed with a German MP-40 machine pistol. This was not uncommon, as German soldiers also liked and used the Soviet PPsh-41 and 43 machine pistols. Not uncommon in any war for combatants to often use enemy weapons and equipment.

Very minor detail, but I notice things like that due to my interest in military history.
