Each scene of the panorama depicts an episode of the war.
A three-dimensional panorama entitled ‘Memory speaks: a Road through the war’ depicting scenes from World War 2 has been inaugurated in the Sevkabel art space in St. Petersburg.
At the opening ceremony, St. Petersburg Governor Alexander Beglov said it was of utmost importance to keep the memories of the war for the younger generations who nowadays may encounter fake stories about the war and the Siege of Leningrad.
«This is for you to remember. This is your legacy, you are to keep the memory of your fathers and grandfathers who fought for our country and won. And now we can learn and speak our mother tongue and live in this beautiful city that could have been destroyed», — Alexander Beglov said.
Vyacheslav Makarov, Chairman of the St. Petersburg Legislative Assembly, remarked that memory is the best reward for those who were killed in the war, starved to death during the Siege of Leningrad, or died of wounds after the war. «We are addressing you, young people, because you have this unique «Siege of Leningrad’ genetic code», — he said.
Each scene of the panorama depicts a certain episode of the war. The exposition occupies eight halls with models of airplanes, tanks, and artillery guns on display.
