Russia and Great Britain were key allies in World War II. And Britain was the only country to have launched a mass fund-raising movement to support the city of Stalingrad which suffered heavy damage from Nazi bombings. People from over 300 towns and cities across the UK have participated in this campaign, including St Albans. The exhibition “Stalingrad in British History” is dedicated not so much to the history of the battle itself, as to this precise partnership and solidarity among the peoples of our two nations.
