    Same things still going on today. Different places and people but basically the same. Nothing changes. Very sad really…welcome to endless war.

    Soviet Russia and German Nazis, close friends from 20-es to 1941, and enemies only by next 4 years. Why not to show photos from September 1939, when both armies were friends?
