Battle of Stalingrad, part 2
The Stalingrad Elevator in 2007. Though the videographer doesn't appear knowledgeable about grain elevators (we see nothing of the elevator's basement or the bottoms of the grain bins), he was kind enough to show us a few shots of the bin floor and the tops of the grain bins, that is, before concentrating on the view from the top of the surrounding areas.
There is a statue at ground level, out in front of the elevator. A banner proclaims: "Victory in the name of the Motherland; victory in the name of the living; victory in the name of those who will come after us. Victory!"
