Mariupol Drama Theater3D Model
On the 16th of March 2022, Russia committed one of the most horrific war crimes of its full-scale military invasion of Ukraine. Russian military forces launched an airstrike on the heart of besieged Mariupol — Mariupol theatre. In the first three weeks of the invasion, the building of the theatre was turned into a major shelter for people from all over the city. For the locals, it had become the safe space, the point of access to information, the place to get food and to stay overnight. This was also the assembly point for the people seeking evacuation from the city. At its peak, up to 1,600 people found shelter in the theatre. According to various estimates, between 100 to 600 people lost their lives due to the Russian attack. The destroyed Mariupol theatre became a tragic symbol of solidarity, mutual support, and self-organization.
