Commemorative badge "Trolley"

0

The original trolley on which the ashes of the dead were taken from the brick factory kilns and brought to the place of eternal rest

The memorial sign “Trolley” was opened on September 8, 2001, on the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the beginning of the siege of Leningrad according to the project of architect A. G. Kostyurina. On a pedestal stylized depicting rails, an authentic brick factory trolley is installed. She was raised from the bottom of the pond on the initiative and at the expense of the patron and resident of St. Petersburg Yu. Yu. Zhorno in 1999.

When the factory was converted into a crematorium, engineers constructed heat-resistant trolleys, on which the burnt ashes were taken out of the furnaces and poured into the Admiralty Pond and its shore. The trolley is installed on the spot where the rails ended in wartime.
