Are soviet bone fields of Stalingrad a real thing?

Answer:

In the area of Stalingrad, hundreds of thousands of soldiers and civilians were killed during the German offensive of World War II and the large majority of them were either not buried or given shallow graves. This meant that many of these bodies and skeletons were uncovered either in the thaw of the winter or due to erosion and the weather. Even today many bodies can still be found in the areas around Stalingrad and it is a dangerous area due to the large numbers of unexploded bombs and weapons around the city.

In general, there is not a specific field of Soviet bones in Stalingrad, but instead just a large multitude of poorly buried or abandoned bodies of both German and Soviet soldiers and civilians throughout the city.
