Moscow In 1944

Posted on May 3, 2015 by team

In 1944 the Soviet Union already lifted in spirits, the Red Army cleared almost all the Soviet territory of the enemy’s presence except the west of Latvia. The capital started to live peacefully again: night restaurants were opened, different solemn events were held, eighty bronze sculptures preveously evacuated to Central Asia, returned to the Moscow subway. Over a million of Soviet citizens were awarded with a medal “For Defence of Moscow”. New schools and institutes were opening in the city, new subway stations were being built.

One of the brightest events in 1944 was the march of German soldiers captured in Belorussia.

    After shameful staged reconstruction in Donbass of the march of war prisoners, where Ukrainians who defended their land against Russian invasion were treated if they were Nazis and where terrorists pretended to be Red Army soldiers, these photos lost their symbolic significance.

      It’s not shameful to make march of war prisoners, It’s shameful when you put bag on his head take him in modern concentration camp like Guantanamo. Who knows how many of them survive there, some of them are probably killed in the airplane during
      the transport. Shameful is torture and humiliation conducted by US troops in Iraq. Shameful is Agent Orange and deliberate pollution of water in Vietnam.


      Shameful is usage of depleted uranium in Iraq. Shameful is to kill entire city by A-Bomb, like Hiroshima and Nagasaki, shameful is when you bombard civilians with firebombs in Tokyo.


      Shameful is brutal bombing of Dresden, etc., etc., etc.

    I worked with one of them in Dayton, Ohio USA. He said that he and others were allowed to leave after either five or six years, I don’t remember which. He also said that they were offered good pay to stay and work in the factories which they had been doing all along.

      I remember I worked with an ex-POW who, IIRC, spent 7 years in Siberia. He was a Sudetendeutsche drafted to Wehrmacht and never uttered a single word about it. AFAIK, speaking about “that uncle Willy who was a prisoner of war in USSR” was absolutely taboo in DDR, too.

    You can say what you want, but the Russians beat the Germans hands down,the Russian’s destroyed the best division’s Germany had,and at a great cost,excluding the politics of the times.

    It’s just bad manners that the Sovoks would parade their former buddies through the streets that way.

      Right after WW2 nearly all the whores that slept with nazi’s were shamed by having their heads shaved and beaten. This event was happening world wide throught out the whole Europe. Most people see this as a similar event since they sold themselves for burgers in order to commit genocide. If you watch Murican TV people are shamed nearly every day for entertainment.
