During the Great Patriotic War and the Battle of Voronezh, from July 7, 1942 until the liberation of the city in January 1943 year, on the site of the "hospital town" there were fierce battles between the Red Army and the Wehrmacht: the area of ​​the regional hospital passed from hand to hand several times. The buildings were badly damaged and after the war it was decided not to rebuild them, and in Voronezh, which was being reborn from the ashes, due to an acute shortage of building materials, the remaining hospital buildings were demolished into bricks. In 1965 , the city council decided to preserve the ruins of the "rotunda" as a monument. "Rotunda" - a round part of the demonstration surgical hall of the OKB. In the background is the Temple of Vladimir Equal to the Apostles.
