704 names of engine builders are immortalized on a renewed Memorial

Solemn opening of the Memorial to engine builders killed at the time of the Great Patriotic War (WW II) took place in Perm on the 9th of May.

The Memorial was established in 1967 in front of the Palace of Culture on Komsomolskiy prospect and initially contained 235 names. 704 more names on two new segments faced with granite slabs were added after the memorial renovation.

The area around the Memorial was landscaped as part of the reconstruction: new paving slabs and flowered bed appeared in front of the monument.

Among new names there is Nikolay N. Teterin. Viktor Teterin, his grandson, told that his family treasures grandfather’s letters from the front line. Before the war Nikolay worked as assembly-fitter in engine building plant No. 19. When the war had started Nikolay Teterin trained as a fighter pilot in Chkalov high flight school fought on piston-engine aircraft I-153/È-153 “Chayka”/ «×àéêà». In January, 1942, his aircraft was shot down near Volokolamsk and he directed the burning plane into the German land convoy. He was posthumously awarded with the order of the Great Patriotic War.
