Mokhovaya Tower

Mokhovaya Tower (June 2012)

The Mokhovaya Tower stands on its own with only two small sections of walls on either side between Park Pionerov (Pioneer Park) and Ploschad Pobedy (Victory Square). During the Nazi occupation of Smolensk many Soviet citizens were lined up against this part of the wall and executed. A mass grave is now located next to the wall on the Pioneer Park side. On the other side of the wall there are metal plaques detailing the events of the Second World War.
