Yekaterinburg social activist Herman Filippov dies
A life-long devotee to public service and charity work, Filippov was the driving force behind the creation of the Yekaterinburg memorial complex for those victimized by political repression during 1930 to 1950, Ekburg.ru reports.
Filippov's memorial for the politically repressed, situated on a 7.5-mile stretch of the Moscow highway in Yekaterinburg, displays the tragedies of Stalinist repression. It is frequently visited by schoolchildren and older students through guided tours.
Apart from his role in promoting civic projects, Filippov hosted a radio broadcast several times a year to raise awareness of the darker moments in Russian history brought on through political tyranny. He was a member of the Academy of Engineering Sciences and the Russian Academy of Natural Sciences, according to Ekburg.ru.
