Learn about the heroism of the defenders of Leningrad in the 900-day Siege. For most of the Siege, there was no land link between the city and the mainland. Food supplies in Leningrad were limited to almost non-existence, forcing the citizens to eat glue, rats and anything that they could possibly find. Until today, the exact numbers of victims are not known, but are said to be exceeding 1 million people. Find out about the Road of Life across Lake Ladoga - the lifeline that saved the city.
