DAY OF EVENTS DEDICATED TO THE 74TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE BATTLE OF STALINGRAD


The defeat of the Nazi forces in the Battle of Stalingrad is celebrated annually on 2 February. This day has become one of the Days of Military Glory of Russia.
The victory in the Battle of Stalingrad in early 1943 was a major military and political event of the WWII. Soviet armored and mechanized forces equipped with T-34s up to the level of 50% played an eminent role in this battle. Four tank corps (7th, 17th, 24th and 26th) and three mechanized corps (4th, 6thand 13th) were awarded with the honorable Guards title based on the outcome of the battle.
Visitors may see a detailed account ofÒ-34 participation in the fighting in the “Battle of Stalingrad” showcase on the first floor of our Museum. “Tank Plants Working for the Front” showcase on the ground floor is partly dedicated to the production of T-34s by the Stalingrad Tractor Works. The genuine bogie wheel of T-34 tank developed by the STW engineers in the early days of the Great Patriotic War is also on display in the Museum. The sectional view of the STW-made bogie wheel is represented in the “Soul of the Tank” section of the exposition also on the ground floor. This, in particular, allows the young visitors to familiarize themselves with the bearing ball and get to know the secrets of this simple, yet very efficient mechanism.
Special quest was held in the Museum on 5 February in commemoration of this memorable victory in the history of our country. Participants of the quest who had given the correct answers to the questions posed in it were awarded with commemorative prizes.

DAY OF EVENTS DEDICATED TO THE ANNIVERSARY OF THE END OF THE SIEGE OF LENINGRAD


27 January, one of the Days of Russian Military Glory, is the day when the full lifting the siege of Leningrad in 1944 is commemorated.
On 8 September 1941 German, Finnish and Spanish armed forces, the latter being represented by officers and soldiers from the Blue Division, started their siege of Leningrad. All those forces were assisted by volunteers from European and North African countries, as well as the Italian Navy. The city was entirely “cut off” from the rest of the country, but it did not succumb and kept on fighting against the invaders.
Only on 12 January 1943 the troops of Leningrad and Volkhov Fronts started their offensive, moving toward each other. On 18 January the two Fronts met in proximity to Workers’ Settlements ¹¹ 1 and 5. Schlisselburg and the southern banks of Lake Ladoga were liberated on that day. The 8-11 km wide passage punched along the coast restored the land connection between Leningrad and the rest of the country. Automobile route and railroad were laid in 17 days. However, the attempts to proceed with the offensive were not successful: the enemy had been redeploying its troops to Sinyavino over and over again. So, the Soviet troops switched over to defense in order to avoid any new breakthrough of the enemy forces to Lake Ladoga and kept defending it until early 1944.
On 14 January 1944 Leningrad, Volkhov and 2nd Baltic Fronts, acting in concert with Baltic Navy Fleet, as well as with Ladoga and Onega Warship Flotilias commenced the Leningrad-Novgorod strategic offensive. By 20 January they defeated the Krasnoye Selo-Ropsha formation of the enemy and liberated the city of Novgorod. The German command had to start the withdrawal of their forces from the surroundings of Mga and Tosno. On 27 January 1944 gun salute took place in Leningrad in order to celebrate the full lifting of the siege.
The lifting of the siege was celebrated in Ò-34 Tank History Museum on Sunday, 29 January 2017. All visitors were given a chance to take part in the quest that enabled them to make a tour of the Museum’s exposition. Successful winners of the quest were awarded with commemorative prizes. Those visitors who were too young to read and write received gifts in the form of coloring books with puzzles.
