Two photos following a two week expedition, searching for missing Soviet soldiers who fell during the battle of Stalingrad near the big bend of the Don river in August 1942. They light a torch by night for every one, until they are finally properly interred.
Total number of discovered Russian soldiers in two-weeks = 169 incl. 4 identified soldiers.
In separate excavations annually they discover up to 3,000 bodies per year.
