Let Us Fulfill Stalin's New Five-Year Plan!, TASS No. 1419, 1946
1785 x 830 mm
During the next five-year plan, the country will gain 84.4 million square meters of housing in the cities and 3,400,000 new houses in villages.
The city was still in shambles
And cannon heaved in the distance,
But life kept on and the city lived
Enmeshed in pine lace of rafters
And the smell of resin-filled shavings.
In homes, destroyed by raging fire,
Pans and projects were born
And step by step, day by day,
Following the advancing warrior
Walked the artist and architect.
All that the Fascist horde
Burned down in burning hatred,
We’ll reconstruct in years to come
And we’ll restore our cities
More beautiful and better.
