The Soviet prisoners of war will be perpetuated in the German town of Villingen-Schwenningen, the Tula News Service reports. The initiative came from the German Society of Friends of Tula and was supported by the city administration.

A monument or an art object will be installed at the place where the war camp was located during the Great Patriotic War.

The German partners plan to organize a competition for the most interesting sketch of the monument among talented students living both in Villingen-Schwenningen and in Tula. The winners will be determined in Germany. 

In addition, Tula schoolchildren and students interested in the history of World War II will have the opportunity to work in the city archive of Villingen-Schwenningen and search for information about the dead compatriots who were held in the local war camp.
