Views about 10 months into the German siege of Leningrad in World War 2. Isaakievskiy (St. Isaac's) cathedral and other buildings on Vorovsky Square (Isaak Square) in Leningrad (St. Petersburg) as viewed from Mariinsky Palace. (They appear relatively unscathed.) The Monument to Nicholas I is in the center. Boats and ships are docked along the Neva River. Two youths stand atop a building and look at smoke rising across the river from buildings being shelled by German forces. Closeup of buildings being destroyed by German shelling. A small boy helps pick up rubble from the streets. A woman is helped to her feet by a Soviet soldier. Scenes of destruction everywhere. Broken windows, stones falling from buildings, an abandoned doll on a window sill. A dead child lying on stairs. A woman weeping. A young boy holding his hat in his hands and looking sadly in mourning. A mother with a baby. People standing about in sorrow and shock. 14-inch Soviet coastal guns firing, from under camouflage netting, at German positions.
