Both in the book "The Siege of Stalingrad" and the movie "Stalingrad" they detail the last flights out of Stalingrad. Badly wounded and ranking officers were given seats.

The last pilot had trouble getting off the ground when he realized men had tried to strap themselves to the planes wings.

The pilot made some sharp moves and the men fell off, others had shot themselves to get out.

But doctors could tell the difference from a self inflicted wound and one from combat.

These men were executed immediately for shotting themselves to get out of Stalingrad.

Some of Mamaev Kurgan is in the left foreground. Krutoy Ravine at its base leads down to the Volga.

Dolgii Ravine at its base leads down to the Volga. Krutoy Ravine--the very next ravine to the south, is also in view.

The Modern Day Location is about correct. The ravine tributary closest to the base of Mamaev Kurgan can be seen in the satellite image.
