Pin made in the Ukraine. The text on the pin reads:”Izium”. Izium is a city situated on the Donets River in Kharkiv Oblast (province) of eastern Ukraine. Population: 45,884 (2021). During World War II, the Red Army held a large bridgehead here, allowing for a salient that was cut off by counterattacking German forces (during the Second Battle of Kharkov) and eliminated in one of the most expensive learning errors for the Red Army. Izium was occupied by the German Army from 24 June 1942 to 5 February 1943.
