The monument is unveiled on the square on Krasnoarmeyskaya street on June 25, 1989. From that date, the square in front of Mari research institute, opposite the shopping centre “Dom byta”, became known as Komsomolskaya. This is one of the best works of the sculptor Shaukat Gabdulkhakovich Akhmetgaraev (architect Aleksey Grigorievich Tsarkov). It is known that almost all the heroes of the work have real prototypes. At least, the partisan Olga Tikhomirova is depicted as a nurse.
Earlier, on the site of this monument there were wooden two-story houses.
