  2. Thomas. I don’t believe those pictures are of Smolensk. Some of these are not. The 11th picture down on the second page is a picture of a house with laundry. The neighborhood is at the bottom of the hill behind the church. I have probably walked that street, the view is strikingly familiar. I bet the house is still there as most homes in the neighborhood are very old. I remember the street was paved and the houses were kept very colorful tidy and well repaired. Wow.

    • He-he, you may be interested in the fact, that the author of the script of that film, Maya Turovskaya, lives in Munich since 1992. Obviously she likes the Nazism home country much better than her own country, the country which defeated Nazism.
      The truth is, in 1965 in USSR making anti-Nazi movies was very profitable. Since 1992, living in Germany became much more profitable for certain people. The movie you talking about is very clever Soviet propaganda. I am not saying that everything in that movie is not true, but good propaganda must be mostly true, or it will not work.

    • Here is one example, in the movie, they claim, that Nazi leaders did not have any education, particularly Goebbels. This is an outright lie. Goebbels had a PhD from Heidelberg university. Meanwhile, Stalin was kicked out of a seminary, which would not even given him a degree, had it finished it, a seminary is like a college. Lenin was kicked out from Kazan University, too. Other Soviet leaders had at best a high school education. Stalin often used profane language in his “resolutions” he put of official documents, like “Execute this f…g bitch”, and in his free time liked to vandalize priceless antique drawings he confiscated for himself from Russian museums.
