“If everyone fought for their own convictions there would be no war” - wrote the great Russian writer of the XIX century Leo Tolstoy. Unfortunately, due to the beliefs of some people, millions of other people had to die in the fire of World War II. Civilians and soldiers of the Soviet Union for the freedom and independence of our Motherland paid the highest price. The memorial complex in Rossoshki includes two parts: German cemetery, opened in 1992, and the Soviet cemetery, which opened since 1997. In the center of the Soviet cemetery is installed a 6-meter concrete sculptural composition "Grieving" by Sergei Shcherbakov. In 2000, the same, but a 4-meter and bronze-made sculpture was installed in London, in the park of the Imperial Museum, another one in 2001 in Berlin. In the German part of the cemetery, there are granite cubes, which bear the names of those who still considered missing. There are more than 120,000 names on 107 cubes... There is permanent burials of newly found soldiers, as another Russian classic from generals – A. Suvorov said, "The war is not over until the last soldier is buried".
