Expert comment:
On the night of 2 to 3 November 1941, after numerous battles on the outskirts of Kursk and in its streets, units of the 2nd Guards Rifle Division and the national militia regiments left the regional center. November 3, 1941 in Kursk began a period of Nazi occupation, the total duration of 15 months to February 8, 1943, when the city was liberated by troops of the 60th Army of the Voronezh Front. During the Great Patriotic War, the city was repeatedly bombed and shelled.
