Photographer's Note

Today, January 29, the Kruty Heroes Day is commemorated in Ukraine. The memorial place in the picture is situated near the Kruty railway station (Pamyatne Village in Borzna Raion of Chernihiv Oblast, about 20 km to the east from Nizhyn), where the Battle of Kruty between the Ukrainian cadet battalion and Russian Bolshevik Army took place on January 29, 1918.

In the picture you can see a part of the memorial’s crescent-shaped lake (there are other artificial lakes around the memorial, one of them being cross-shaped, see this bird’s-eye view), reconstruction of the train, which brought the young students to the battlefield and is now used as a museum, 10-metre red column topped with the coat of arms of Ukraine and the flag of Ukraine.
