    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    Many people in the City have been trying to get the name changed back to Stalingrad for quite a few years . the campaign is led by the Stalingrad veterans association.

    Interesting pictures! By the way Stalin can be a hero for many people but for many he is just a war criminal just like hitler. So no wonder people do not want to live in a city named by a mass murderer. Russian history is not just years 1941-1945.

    I don't think Stalin is a hero to many people in Russia today, much like other communist leaders and leaders of present day Russia. Trotsy(Lev Bronstein) was a mass murderer so was Lenin, Kaganovich, Sverdlov, Yagoda and many others. Ilyia Ehrenburg even promoted killing and mass rape of Germans in his propaganda writings. G W Bush for that matter is also a mass murderer, but all that is a different story.

    Very nice pictures Paul E. Keep them comming. Thanks a lot.
