The Siege of Leningrad, also known as the “Leningrad Blockade” was the most tragic period in the history of the Russian city. A 900 day military operation from September 1941 to January 1944, undertaken by the German army caused an incredible amount of suffering and casualties to the city’s three million civilians until the siege was broken on January 18, 1943 and then fully lifted on January 27, 1944.
