Trophy German motorcycle Zündapp KS-600
Trophy German motorcycle Zündapp KS-600. The motorcycle was made in Germany on June 22, 1941, and was used in the troops of Army Group North. It was captured during the operation to break the blockade in 1943. Here is what sergeant Nikolai Iskhomov, a participant in the battles for Leningrad, told about this event: “The fascist wanted to crush me, but I took it by cunning: he turned and jumped right across the wheel at him. He grabbed his throat, tumbled down into the cradle and finished off his machine gun. " For his perfect feat, Sergeant Iskhomov was awarded the Order of the Red Star, and the motorcycle was left to him as a gift from the command.

After the war and demobilization, Nikolai with his trophy returned to his native village of Ochakovka, Smolensk region. There, the resourceful veteran adapted the motorcycle for agricultural needs, using it as a tractor. This "tractor" has worked in agriculture for 40 years.

After the death of Nicholas, the motorcycle was inherited by his son, and from him by his grandson Stanislav, who, learning about the revival of the Museum of Defense of Leningrad, in memory of his grandfather - the defender of the hero city, drove the motorcycle from Smolensk to the city on the Neva and it was useless handed over to the museum.

The main threat to the blockade was “lighters” - incendiary bombs, so MPVO (Air defense) detachments were created to help firefighters, who were on duty on rooftops and warning about air raids. The fighters of these detachments were trained how such bombs can be put out, in the ranks were women, children, and even composer Dmitry Dmitrievich Shostakovich.

Museum stands, weapons exposition



Museum stands, weapons exposition. The floor is transparent, underneath it is like a battlefield dotted with weapons and ammunition. Another amazing decision - newsreel frames are projected onto the windows, which creates a separate atmosphere.
