True. And a nice big apartment building has sprung up on the right. But one feature still visible is the median strip with the trees on it. Might even be some of the same trees.

The Wehrmacht retakes Kharkov in March, 1943. The German offensive cost the Red Army an estimated 90,000 casualties. The house-to-house fighting in Kharkov was also particularly bloody for the German SS Panzer Corps, which had approximately 4,300 men killed and wounded by the time operations ended in mid March.

A German assault gun and half-track in the area of Pavlovskaya Square - and the same area today.
