In the Museum-reserve “battle of Stalingrad” tell us that a unique photo was taken in 1969. An employee of the Museum at the time of shooting was at the height of over 40 meters above the top of the mound, which houses a giant statue. It is obvious that the participants of the photo shoot, including the photographer, had put himself at great risk – at this altitude is almost always a strong wind rages, in addition, elements of the statue is quite sloping and is not adapted for secure of finding them unprepared.
Brave woman climbed up into the hands of “Motherland” accompanied by an experienced climber. The photo shows that she holds the safety rope. And the photographer, who was shooting, standing near the collarbone, went down on a rope from the hatch on the head of the statue.
