Pavlov's House

One of the focal points of the Battle of Stalingrad, a strategic apartment building that a small group of Soviet soldiers fortified and held for two months against a relentless German offensive before being relieved by counterattacking Soviet forces. While the building, rebuilt after the war, is in active use as a residence and not open to the public, a monument made up of bricks retrieved from the battleground is attached to the outside of the building and publicly accessible.
