Welcome

Welcome to Mamayev Kurgan, a blog about memorials, monuments and museums relating to the Second World War in the former Soviet Union, or the Great Patriotic War as it is known in most of the former Soviet republics. The name comes from the hill in Volgograd (formerly Stalingrad) on which probably the most famous memorial, The Motherland Calls (Родина Мать зовёт), is situated. I will be posting photos and various musings about memorials, museums, tanks, bunkers, shellholes in the ground and anything else that I think may be relevant or of interest. I hope you enjoy it. All photographs are my own, unless otherwise stated.
