Categories: History Museums, Museums
Learn about the most harrowing period of the city's history at State Memorial Museum of Leningrad Defense and Blockade. Commemorating the 900-day Blockade of Leningrad, which lasted from September 8, 1941, to January 17, 1944, the museum tells the story of the advance of the combined German and Finnish forces and their eventual repulsion by the Red Army. You'll see photographs, arms, and personal effects of soldiers of all nationalities. Other exhibits include diaries kept by Geman offices and newspaper articles chronicling the feats of Soviet snipers. Get a closer look at propaganda material, a replica of a typical apartment interior of that time, an example of the minimal daily bread ration, and numerous handwritten notes about life under siege. View the uniforms of German siege forces and Russian defenders, paintings honoring those who led the defense, and letters and photos bearing witness to the blockade that led to the death of over 700,000 civilians. Note that exhibits are only labeled in Russian, so rent an English audio guide, or call ahead to organize an English speaking translator for group tours.

An ambiguous impression, certainly walked into the Museum with a sense of deep respect and our sensitivity to the inhabitants of the siege of Leningrad. The exposition is quite rich, but in my opinion not entirely successful, as the vystroenna is mixed, although covered virtually the entire layer of tragedy surrounded days.
