This museum is located in the school N 201. This is where Zoya Kosmodemyansky studied from 1933 to 1941. She was hung in 1941 by the Nazis at age 18 and became one of the most famous Second World War martyr. She was granted «Hero of Soviet Union» status. Her younger brother, Aleksandr Kosmodevyansky (1925-1945) was also granted this status for his acts of war. He died in battle near Kaliningrad.
