Monument to Muscovites killed in Air Raids

In the small park located on Ulitsa Khavskaya, at the end of Konny Pereulok which runs off Ulitsa Shabolovska, is an unusual statue dedicated to Muscovites who died during air raids in the Second World War. This area was heavily bombed due to the location here of the Shukhov Tower and a ball bearing factory. The monument was unveiled in 1960 in the small park which itself was developed on the site of a crater caused by an air raid. It depicts a woman who has been made homeless in a bombing raid, wrapped in warm clothing and clutching her baby.
