Brest juni 1941 Kommissær Yefim Moiseevich Fomin

Defense of Brest Fortress:
The defence of Brest Fortress took place 22--30 June 1941. It was one of the first battles of Operation Barbarossa.
The Brest Fortress was defended by the Red Army against the Wehrmacht, held out longer than expected, and became a symbol of Soviet resistance during the Second World War.

In 1965 the fortress received the title of Hero Fortress for the 1941 defense.

Brest Fortress:
(Belarusian: Брэсцкая крэпасць, Brestskaya krepasts' ; Russian: Брестская крепость, Brestskaya krepost' ; Polish: Twierdza brzeska),
formerly known as Brest-Litovsk Fortress (the Polish name of the city was Brześć Litewski), is a 19th century Russian fortress in Brest, Belarus.

It is one of the most important Soviet World War II war monuments commemorating the Soviet resistance against the German invasion on June 22, 1941 (Operation Barbarossa).
Following the war, in 1965 the title Hero-Fortress was given to the Fortress to commemorate the heroic defence of the frontier stronghold during the very first weeks of the German-Soviet War.
It was then part of the Byelorussian SSR.
The title Hero-Fortress corresponds to the title Hero City, that has been awarded to the total of twelve Soviet cities.
