The Modern Day Location satellite image is helpful. The contoured slope in the foreground of the photo is visible; (zoom in a kilometer or so west of the pinpointed location).

Online at "Stalingrad Aerial Scans" this contoured hill and the view beyond can be seen in a similar view: select GX2032SK-038.
