  1. Sad.

    Apparently less than 5% of the Leningrad citizens who were killed died of direct German bombing or shelling. The vast majority died of hunger.

  2. Second photo from the top – the one with the livestock- That’s Ulitsa Vvyedenskaya. On the left is House 17. This was the exact building where I lived from 2001 – 2008.

    I knew if I read this site long enough there would be a photo of my old place!

    Thanks!

  3. the picture with the translation “kill the fascist” actually means “kill the german”.
    what a lousy attempt of of whitewashing the bolshevik regime.nowedays, everything seems to be the opposite of the truth.

    • Not surprising. During the war, all Germans were considered Nazis. Similar to the way that during the Cold War, all soviets were considered communists.

      • “all soviets were considered communists”

        hahaha, dont tell, what a suprise ..
        I heard about national bolsheviks, and now it seems there are anticomunist bolsheviks, Russia is a great country indeed 🙂

        • WTF are you ranting on about? When I said Soviets, I meant the Soviet citizen. Contrary to what western propaganda may claim, Soviet does not = Communist.

    • “Kill a German! Revenge! Kill a German! The old mother asks you to. Kill a German! The child begs you. Kill a German, shouts the Motherland”

      Although singular is used in the poster, it meant plurar.

    • The fact , “truth” , is … russian citizens were brainwashed enthousiasts far more longer than german ones … and this actually goes on as well , with the old hypocrits communists masters turning themselves so easily into oligarques , when , nowadays , 35 former soviet individuals detain 50% of the national gross wealth and 25% more by the mafia working hand in hand with them.
      Anyway , apart of that consideration upon sad karma of this lovely romantic people I am in love with for their fantastic resilience , I want to thanks alot the native russian speakers on that wonderful site for the effort they made to express themselves in the new international language , like I , a french one , actually do .
