Moscow 1942

Moscow 1942

After the hardest year 1941 the following 1942 gave a respite to Moscow, it was slowly coming back to peaceful life. The enemy was pushed back 100-250 km away from the city.  Air attacks didn’t bring heavy destruction anymore and air-raid warnings didn’t occur every day.

The main problem was hunger and shortage of essential products like soap. Moscow citizens could celebrate the Easter under control of NKVD.  “Dynamo” stadium began to be used for sports competition again…
