Such is the name of the exhibition in Т-34 Tank History Museum dedicated to the 75th anniversary of the victory in the Battle of Stalingrad, recovery of the Stalingrad Tractor Works (STW) and resumption of tank repairs in April 1943.

Visitors can also see some exhibits from the Museum’s collection, war relics dug out by the search groups, collection of military uniforms from S. Chibineyev (town of Pushkino in Moscow Region) and unique photos made by A. Polozhenkov, an employee of the STW, just after the liberation of Stalingrad by the Soviet troops in 1943.
