"Sorrowful Result of the Siege"

Piskaryovskoye Memorial Cemetery is situated in the north part of the city. It is a very important place for the people of the city, being the burial place (in mass graves) of those who died during World War II. The cemetery is a harrowing reminder of the horrors of that era. A wide alley runs between the common graves; too many people died for individual burial to be possible. The only identification provided is by granite blocks inscribed with the year of death. At the far end of the cemetery stands a memorial to the Motherland including a statue of Mother Russia.
