In 1968, a memorial monument to those who died during the Second World War was inaugurated in Victory Park. It was made by local sculptors Leonid Prokopevich and Muse Alexandrovna Belousov. On the same day, the Eternal Flame was lit.
In 1975, the memorial was reconstructed (plates with the names of the residents of Kostanay who died at the front were added).
In 2014, repairs were carried out to replace granite facing slabs, the torch of the Eternal Flame, and the paving stones on the square in front of the memorial were updated. New names of heroes have been added to the Memory Wall.
