Peremilovskaya height - under this name, the place of fierce battles of the Soviet troops with the Nazi invaders is known in late autumn and early winter 1941 near the city of Yakhroma. The height was near the village of Peremilovo, which later became part of Yakhroma. Now the place where the bloody battle was in full swing is located in the city, there is a memorial here.
The height is about two kilometers, the slopes are indented, and therefore it is sometimes called the “Peremilov Heights”. This is one of the lines on which the Nazis rushing towards Moscow were stopped. The fascist troops managed to get close to the outskirts of Dmitrov (located near Yakhroma), the city was fired upon, but the Nazis failed to enter it. During the battle at Peremilovskaya High, the Nazis were defeated.
The monument dedicated to this fateful battle was erected in the mid 60-ies of the XX century. Its discovery was dedicated to the 25th anniversary of the battle for Moscow. The monument depicts a soldier rushing into the attack. High above his head he raises a machine gun. The figure of the warrior is made of bronze, the height of the sculpture is thirteen meters. The monument is mounted on a light gray pedestal, whose height is fifteen meters.
The bronze sculpture was made at the Leningrad plant, the granite for the pedestal was Ukrainian, and the bas-reliefs were created in Mytishchi. On the pedestal are carved poems dedicated to the battles at Peremilovskaya height. The author of these lines is R. Rozhdestvensky, who wrote them at the request of the inhabitants of Yakhroma.
