Creating the Lenin Mausoleum

Immediately after the death of VI Lenin January 21, 1924, it was decided to preserve the image of a great leader and build a mausoleum on Red Square. According to the project by Alexei Shchusev was originally built wooden structure. It was a simple structure: a depression in the ground about 3 meters, above which rises a wooden structure in the form of a cube with three-tier pyramid on top. People came on the one hand, rounded the coffin in and out the other side. In April, it was built a new wooden building, in the form corresponding to the modern, with adjacent stands. The sarcophagus was made by the architect K. Melnikov and served until the end of World War II. At the entrance of the honor guard was on duty.

In 1930 the stone structure was built and designed by A. Shchusev. The structure was faced with a dark-red granite, marble, and the inscription at the entrance is made - Lenin. Built on both sides of the rostrum from which members of the Government welcomed the passing show, and watching military parades. Inside the memorial hall is 1000 sq.m. Soviet scientists have developed a unique technology that made it possible to keep the body of the leader for decades. For the construction of the tombs of prominent communist government.

During World War II leader's body was kept in the city of Tyumen. After the war, the sarcophagus was replaced by new, and in 1973 - in bulletproof. When Stalin died, his body was embalmed and placed and also here. But due to the dethronement of his personality cult had been buried near the Kremlin wall.

In recent years, many political figures raise the question of whether to retain the body of the leader of the revolution. The need for disposal of the body and said Patriarch Alexy II. In October 1993 the post was made at the entrance to the mausoleum. But since 1991 all work on facilities run by extra-budgetary funds, including fund created by the Lenin Mausoleum. Funds in the Fund is made, many individuals and organizations advocating for the preservation of historical relics of our people. Several times there were attempts to damage or even destroy the building and the body of the leader.

However, the Communist Party in favor of maintaining the mausoleum. It is believed that this building is the burial place of the leader. In addition, a generation is associated with his name. And the closure of this facility means to them, that they worshiped false values, and their life is lived in vain. Against the dumping of the revolutionary leader spoke and VV Putin. In addition, since 1990 Ensemble of the Kremlin and Red Square are included in the UNESCO list of objects, be preserved intact and are not subject to the new building.
