In this Wednesday, Jan. 23, 2019 photo, Tamara Chernykh, 81, a survivor of the Nazi siege of Leningrad during World War II, looks at her photo album in St. Petersburg, Russia. The Nazi siege of Leningrad lasted nearly 2 and a half years until the Soviet Army drove the Nazi troops away on Jan. 27, 1944. Estimates of the death toll vary, but historians agree that more than one million Leningrad residents died of hunger and air and artillery bombardment in one of the most horrifying episodes of World War II.
