The idea of erecting a monument to captive Wehrmacht soldiers who died in Tambov camps came to the town authorities from two French provinces – Alsace and Moselle. The monument is a 800 kg bronze sculpture of more than 2.5 m high in the shape of two separated faces.
The public garden has walking area, flowerbeds, decorative trees and shrubs. The sculptures are installed on the white concrete pedestal shaped as a tetrahedral truncated pyramid.
The author of the monument project is a famous French sculptor, Paul Flickinger. According to the French sculptor, the composition symbolizes the unity of two nations – French and Russian. It is remarkable that the sculpture is a two times smaller copy of the sculpture in France.
