1942 as a turning point in the war

"The Germans have received that measure of fire and steel which they have so often meted out to others.[...] Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning."

At the same time thousands of kilometers away, the Soviet counterattack against the Germans began in Stalingrad, making 1942 a turning point in World War II.

In November 2012, 70 years later, Yad Vashem held an international conference dedicated to these turning points.
