This is my little work with old photos....
The first photo was taken near the Volga hydroelectric station. In the afternoon of August 23 the 14th Tank Corps from the 6th Army Wehrmacht reached the Volga in this area.
The second photo was taken near Volgograd Tractor Plant...
The third photo was taken on Mamaev Hill. In the background image seen my place of residence. This district is called the "the second kilometer." September 17, 1942 this place was occupied by troops of 295 Infantry Division.

I want to thank the parents of this forum.
I met with Paulus on the forum last year and now our family friends.
Photo was taken at the memorial cemetery near the village of Rossoshka.
Once again, thank you for sharing your experiences with us. Even the trivial artifacts make the war come to life.
Regarding work, or the lack thereof; look on the bright side... at least your an engineer.
BTW, I'm following a fascinating thread on the Axis History that describes civilian life in occupied Soviet Union in photos & documents
Lots of interesting photos of day to day life for the German soldier and the Soviet civilians.
I highly recommend it

Really a very large thread. I looked at everything.
Lots of photos from the Ukraine and central Russia, it is not interesting for me.
There I saw no pictures from the south of Russia. Sometimes residents the rivers Don and Kuban well welcomed German troops.
Like in the picture.
most of the ukrainien people welcomed German troops in their country i dont know why
