Monument to the victims of the siege of Leningrad

0

This pavilion was opened on January 27, 1995. It was built by architect E.F. Shapovalova in the form of an ancient crypt with a funeral monument-urn

The pavilion stands on a fairly high hill on the shore of the Admiralty Pond. This hill appeared on the maps of the Park only after the Great Patriotic War.

It was believed that the ashes of a brick factory burnt in the furnaces were poured into ponds. But when the specialists read the notes of the factory workers, doubts crept in that the ponds became the only burial place. As shown by the research of specialists from the St. Petersburg Forestry Academy, a mass grave is hidden in the depths of the hill on which the pavilion stands.

The monument was built in the form of an antique monument. The inscription on the granite basement reads: "In memory of thousands of victims, victims of the blockade and defenders of the city, burned in the furnaces of a brick factory standing here."
