Photographer's Note

The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier (Могила Неизвестного Солдата) is a war memorial, dedicated to the Soviet soldiers killed during the Great Patriotic War of 1941-1945. It is located at the Kremlin Wall in the Alexander Garden in Moscow.
It was designed by architects D. Burdin, V. Klimov, Yu. Rabayev and sculptor N.V.Tomsky. The centerpiece of the memorial is a platform, which consists of big plates made of polished red granite. The tombstone itself is decorated with a sculptural composition made of bronze (a laurel twig and a soldier's helmet lying on a banner).
In front of the tombstone, there is a five-pointed star in a square pit, which emanates the Eternal Flame of Glory from its center. The flame illuminates a bronze inscription saying "Your name is unknown, your deed is immortal" (Имя твоё неизвестно, подвиг твой бессмертен).
