Panoramas of the World

Soviet Memorial (Berlin)

The Soviet Memorial is located at Strasse des 17. Juni, close to the Brandenburg Gate. It was established in 1945, in order to honour the soldiers of the Red Army killed in action in the Second World War.

Three Soviet memorials were built in the city after the war. They are to honor the Red Army soldiers killed. 20,000 of them died during the conquest of Berlin. For quite some time, the memorial was a Soviet enclave in the British sector of West Berlin. Red Army honor guards were stationed there until 1994.

The statue shows a Red Army soldier with a rifle. Two tanks and two cannons are located at the entrance to the memorial, which were in use during the battle of Berlin. Next to the memorial are the graves of 2500 soviet soldiers.
