Kharkov Central Train Station

After the defeat of 6. Armee in the Battle of Stalingrad in early 1943, throughout southern German Eastern Front threatened to collapse. The Red Army succeeded to temporarily relieve Kharkov in February 1943. In March, the city was retaken by the German Wehrmacht. Walter Hollnagel use the short interval before the final capture by the Red Army on 23 August 1943 to make this the completely destroyed Kharkov central station image, of which only the façade remains. After all, makes the square outside the station a tidy impression and you've made it to moor a new sign at the train station! The picture was taken in May 1943
