When the Germans took the hill, they began firing on the centre of Stalingrad. The Soviets retook Mamayev on 16 September 1942, suffering extreme losses. The Germans assaulted the hill an avarage of 12 times a day and the hill changed several times of ownership during the battle.

During the Russian Civil War, Stalin played a leading role in the fighting around this city. That is why the city was named after him in 1925.
Stalingrad became world famous for the decisive big battle for Stalingrad that was fought there during the Second World War.
Stalingrad became Wolgograd in 1961 during the period of liberalization and destalinization under Khrushchev. This name change met with much opposition from the Russian people, who considered the name Stalingrad from the Great Patriotic War more important than all the bad associations with the person of Stalin.
