Across the street is Pavlov’s House. Across the street is Pavlov’s House. During the Battle of Stalingrad a unit of Soviet soldiers used this building as a defensive perimeter. Historians believe they were led by sergeant Yakov Pavlov. This house is a true symbol of wartime courage, endurance and the solidarity of the Soviet people. The special memorial sidewall is dedicated to the twenty three soldiers of eleven nationalities who defended the house for 58 days. Two more names belong two soldiers who helped capture the building.
