The Battle of Stalingrad was one of the key battles of World War II. At the same time it represented an absolute negation of humanity. From this point of view there were no winners in it. This is why the key motif is the shot through the medal, which is unique to each example and which destroys both its sides. On the obverse, in its middle part, there is a replica of a German 50 Pfennig coin of 1942, which year refers to the beginning of the offensive at Stalingrad. On the reverse, applied in the same manner, is a replica of a Soviet 10 kopeika coin of 1943, the year of which recalls the fending off of the German troops by the Red Army. The case selected for this medal suggests a military shoe polish by its design and, therefore, forms an integral part of the entire conception.
