Placing a Wreath in the Pool

That is me placing a wreath on which I placed Russ' tank in the reflection pool in front of the statue of Mother Russia. The gentlemen to my right in the white shirt, just read my dedication to the assembled veterans which went as follows: "In remembrance of Russ Schneider and all of the participants of the Battle of Stalingrad, be they combatants or noncombatants, officers or other ranks, friend or foe. May the World never forget the folly of men so what happened on this hallowed ground need never be repeated. In peace we pray."
