Relatively unscathed by the pre-assault bombardment, the menacing structure which stood at the western edge of the Dzerhezinsky Tractor Works was simply labeled the "Adminstration Building" on all of the German maps. It stood as a bulwark against the 30th Infantry's first assault, with automatic weapons fire pouring from every window. Armored support was called into the fray and Stukas rained down bombs, smashing into the buildings below. The fighting soon deteriorated into a room-by-room affair amid burning and rubbled buildings.
