Memorial complex of Glory in Kharkov

Memorial complex in KharkovIn Kharkov, in the Forest Park in 1977 there was opened a beautiful and majestic memorial complex. The Complex of Glory immortalized the immortal and unforgettable feat of Soviet citizens in the fight against the Nazi invaders. The place for the memorial was chosen not accidental: at this northern city limit the Nazis executed and shot tens of thousands of Soviet soldiers, partisans and underground fighters, prisoners of war and patriots, who refused to submit to the enemy.

During the Great Patriotic War the residents of Kharkov showed the enviable courage, bravery and heroism. They stoically fought against the oppression of the conquerors, together with other citizens of the former Soviet Union and gave their lives for the peaceful life of their descendants. In honor of these soldiers there were erected three steles with dropped down cast banners. On one stele there is the inscription, which is to remind present and future generations about the great feat of the Soviet people: "In the battles for Kharkov 186 306 Soviet soldiers died a hero’s death".
In the center of the memorial complex there is a majestic stele depicting the suffering, struggles and joys of the Great Victory. Beside it there is a sculpture Mother-Motherland frozen in mournful silence for the fallen warriors in battle. At the foot of the monument burns the Memorial Complex of Gloryeternal flame, and on the gray granite there is paved the inscription with gold letters: "Heroes do not die. They gain immortality, and remain forever in our memory, in our deeds, in the great affairs of future generations. Their descendants owe them their lives."
