This picture was taken in April of 2006 in Kaliningrad, formerly Koenigsburg. The marker memorializes a Soviet submarine commander from the Second World War who is famous for having sunk a German ship carrying between 6,000 and 9,000 people. Read the Wikipedia article here.
|As the photographer noted, the flowers and wreaths indicate that the memorial is still very much in use. It is located at the city quay.|
