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.
