With the final lifting of the siege in 1944 and the retreat of the Germans, the danger from artillery bombardment passed and the warning signs were removed from the walls. They had however become a powerful memory and a symbol of the dangers that the city's inhabitants had faced during the war. Poet Mikhail Dudin made reference to them in his poems, and spearheaded an initiative to have the sign recreated on a building on Nevsky Prospect.

Svetlana Magayeva, Albert Pleysier. During the 900 days of the siege, Leningrad was beset with aerial bombings, fuel shortages, and extreme starvation. At the end of the siege more than a million Leningraders had died.

The Nazi siege of Leningrad, the Soviet Union's second largest city after Moscow, began on September 8, 1941 and lasted until January 27, 1944 (though the blockade was partially breached on January 18, 1943). Isolated from the outer world, the city lacked food and fuel. Residents planted kitchen gardens, which were guarded round the clock. The Germans tried to shell and bomb the city into submission.

Frozen Tears unfolds the events that led to Germany's military invasion of the Soviet Union in 1941 and explores Germany's advance on Leningrad and the blockade that was established against the city. This story examines the lives of the city's inhabitants who suffered from the consequences of the siege that finally ended in 1944. By this time more than one million Leningraders had lost their lives.The lives of public figures are often used by historians to tell the events of the past. The decisions they made and the actions that were taken are discussed and analyzed. However, the experiences of commoners―men, women, and children not mentioned in textbooks―often illustrate better the events of the past. In Frozen Tears, Albert Pleysier has taken the contents of diaries, letters, essays, and interviews written or given by persons who lived in Leningrad during the siege and placed them in their historical setting. The result is a very personal history of the siege of Leningrad.
