6 Faces of Heroes In Fire

Faces of Heroes In Fire

Posted on June 25, 2011 by team


The memory of the victory erases the memory of the terrible outbreak of the war. But let’s not forget the feats of Russian soldiers who gave their lives for us. Like some talented guys from Yekaterinburg who made terrific graffiti using fire and bandages dedicated to 6 brave soldiers…

This abandoned hospital received the wounded during the war. On the wall are the faces of four Ural soldiers and two nameless ones.

They are painted with fire. Light areas are covered with bandages.

The eternal flame lasts several minutes.

Thanks to:
– The Hero of the Soviet Union, Major Fyodor Spekhov
– The commander of the 61st Guards Tank Brigade, Colonel Fomichev
– Guard Sergeant Serebryakov
– Guard Lieutenant Markov
– an unknown soldier

“During the Second World War (1941-1945) this building housed Hospital No. 1705 for the wounded soldiers of the Soviet Army”.

Lt. Fyodor Spekhov. On August 22, 1939, being in a group of seven tanks, destroyed four anti-tank guns, six machine guns, and up to fifty soldiers and officers of the enemy using a frame-thrower! Died a heroic death in a battle near the village of Dirtel (Germany) on April 1, 1945.

Unknown soldier.

Colonel Fomichev.

Unknown soldier.

Lt. Markov.

Sgt. Serebryakov.

Photographs are transferred onto the base. The different density of bandages gives the different tones of picture. After the fire, all the remaining bandages are removed. Everything’s quite simple.

This place is located in the very center of Yekaterinburg. After some negotiations with the man responsible for the building, it was decided not to call the police and leave the masterpieces.

Location: Yekaterinburg

    I think this is a beautiful and original way of remembering the heroes of WWII.

    I am sure they themselves would like it very much, although I do not think they would like what they would see if they could see Russia now.

    They died to protect the Russian people from fascism, from inequality, so that all children would have a “chance”.

    Such a pity and tradegy.

    Didn’t WW2 start in early September 1939 when Germany invaded Poland, with the USSR invading a week or so later? Otherwise, who was he fighting? The Japanese?

    It is a shame this hospital is in such disrepair and that the only tribute to these heroes is an interesting form of graphitti.
