  • The Fountain "Children's Choir" was created in 2013 by sculptor Alexander Burganov, based on the concept of the legendary Stalingrad fountain. Stalingrad Fountain "Children's Choir" in 1930. The author of the sculptural group is the Soviet sculptor Romuald Romuald Iodko. The fountain became widely known from the footage of the military chronicle, made by front-line correspondent Emmanuel Noevich Evzerichin after the Luftwaffe air raid on August 23, 1942 (in the background - the burning Stalingrad station). The photo was called: "August 23, 1942. After a massive raid by Hitler's aviation." Thanks to this photograph, which flew around the world, the fountain became one of the recognizable symbols of Stalingrad, the Battle of Stalingrad.
