Echo Of The Siege Of Leningrad

Echo Of The Siege Of Leningrad

The Siege of Leningrad was broken in the wake of Operation Iskra, a full-scale offensive conducted by the Leningrad and Volkhov Fronts. The offensive started in the morning of January 12th, 1943. After fierce battles the Red Army units overcame the powerful German fortifications to the south of Lake Ladoga, and on January 18th, 1943 the Leningrad and Volkhov Fronts met, opening a 10–12 km wide land corridor, which could provide some relief to the besieged population of Leningrad. Yesterday, Russia celebrated the 69th anniversary of the breach of the blockade, so we offer you to see photographs made by combining those taken during the siege and those of today.
