Breaking blockade day

80 years ago, on January 18, 1943, after 872 days of genocidal siege hell, which was arranged by the Nazi invaders, the troops of the Leningrad and Volkhov fronts broke through the blockade ring around Leningrad, liberating the city of Shlisselburg.

“The Fuhrer has decided to wipe out the city of Leningrad from the face of the earth… within 100 days…” (From Hitler’s Directive No. 1601 of September 22, 1941)

More terrible than what was in the besieged Leningrad, today in the world you can no longer find!


We, the living, do not understand
What did the child feel, fading away,
Carrying a dead mother on a sled
And biting lips from impotence ...
They fell out, but people did not give up,
The city did not give up, adults and children!
Their memory, living, bow
And tell me - let them remember! - to our children.

January 18 - history wrote in gold on the pages of its calendar.
Glory and Eternal memory to the defenders and residents of besieged Leningrad!
