Mill Gerhardt or Grudinina mill is the building of the steam mill of the early XX century, which was destroyed in the battle of Stalingrad and not restored as a war memorial. Part of the Museum-reserve "battle of Stalingrad".

The mill worked until September 14, 1942, when the building was hit by explosive bombs that caused a fire and stop running. By 20 September in the mill defense ranked 3rd battalion of the 42nd infantry regiment of the 13th guards rifle division. Near was an Street "of 9 January", she became the neutral zone. The mill building was the only multi-story building on the Central promenade, which the Soviet soldiers defended it because it was very massive and strong. The Soviet 13th division launched an offensive in the area of Mamayev Kurgan, the street of "9 January" ceased to be neutral zone. Only then was able to collect the bodies in the square, lying with the September fighting, and dead in the winter.

The building was half-encircled by 58 days. These days the Mill Gerhardt withstood many of the falling bombs and shells. These injuries are still visible today, literally every square meter of the exterior walls hewed shells, bullets and shrapnel.
