You are walking on the paths of history. Apart from the description of WW2, which was interesting for me to read (and I share your response having visited Volgograd/Stalingrad myself), the reference to the Belovezhskaya Pushcha park brought back memories of watching on Soviet television the outcome of the meeting between the leaders of Russia, Belarus, and Ukraine held at this place on 8 December 1991, which dissolved the Soviet Union. President Gorbachev has written in personal terms about this. His article is published by the journal Russia in Global Affairs published by Russia's Foreign Policy Research Association. The article is online at https://eng.globalaffairs.ru/articles/perestroika-and-new-thinking-retro/
