A Spanish saying says that a button is enough for a sample, it means that with a button you can give an idea of the entire costume.
The German atrocities have been so many and of such importance that it is painful even to recall them, but the most curious thing is the oblivion that covers them, while the violations committed by the Russian army in Germany are aired and exaggerated ad nauseam, those committed by the Germans against the Russian civilian population they cover themselves with a cloak of silence.
This is all the more incredible in that the deaths in the Russian civilian population far exceed the murders in the Holocaust against the Jews. 4.500.000-10.000.000 civilian deaths due to military actiosn and crimes against humanity and 8.000.000-9.000.000 civilian deaths due to war related famine and diseases.*
This surpasses any imagination.
We are going to show a single button of the German atrocities the atrocities committed in the town of Krasnaya Poliana* narrated just after the liberation of the town and in a style typical of the war era. There is little that can be added.
Fascist atrocities in the village of Krasnaya Polyana. Documentary Chronicle
PLOT: GENOCIDE OF THE SOVIET PEOPLE. DOCUMENTARY CHRONICLE
In order to perpetuate the memory of the civilian population of the Soviet Union, which was expelled and exterminated during the Great Patriotic War, RAPSI studied archival materials * that bear witness to the genocide of citizens of the USSR.
When the Germans stormed the village of Krasnaya Polyana, they arrested all the men in the early hours and locked them in the premises of the district executive committee. They sat there for 8 days until our troops were released, receiving no food. The Germans locked the old women in shelters and cellars, posting sentries on them, and at that time a wild orgy was taking place in the town and nearby towns. Crowds of drunken Hitler scoundrels went from house to house, killing, raping, robbing, burning houses.
On the first day of the arrival of the Germans in Krasnaya Polyana, two fascists appeared to Alexandra Yakovlevna. They saw Demyanova's daughter Nyura, 14, in the room, a frail girl in frail health. A German officer grabbed the teenager and raped her in front of her mother. On December 10, the doctor at the local gynecological hospital, after examining the girl, declared that this Hitlerian bandit had infected her with syphilis. In a neighboring apartment, fascist cattle raped another 14-year-old girl, Tonya I.
On December 9, the body of a Finnish officer was found in the same town. A "collection" of women's buttons was found in the victim's pocket. There were 37 of them. The bloody dog thus followed the trail of his heinous violence. In Krasnaya Polyana, this scoundrel raped 17-year-old Margarita K. and also ripped a button from her blouse. The Red Army bullet took out this filthy bastard, and now his corpse, like carrion, lies around the site of his monstrous crimes.
The Germans brutally mocked the wounded Red Army soldiers captured by them in Krasnaya Polyana. Several wounded soldiers, including an injured nurse, did not receive 4 days of water and 7 days of food, and were then given salt water. The nurse began to agonize. The dying girl was raped by a fascist jackal in front of wounded Red Army soldiers.
Collective Farmers of the Town of White Rast vols. Shcherbakov, Chistov, Sergeev, Klimova and others in an act drawn up by them at the time of the terrified flight of the Germans from this village, declare: In our village, the Germans organized a massive pogrom and looted the property of collective farmers, perpetrated a brutal massacre of the population. A fascist soldier unknown to us by his last name shot the innocent 12-year-old boy Vladimir Tkachev, firing 21 rounds of a machine gun at him. The fascist scoundrels brutally treated the defenseless woman Irina Vasilyevna Mosolova. She was shot point-blank, for no reason, leaving 4 small children orphans: the youngest is 10 months old and the oldest is 11 years old. In Klimova Olga Aleksandrovna, the Nazis shot a 16-year-old son, set the house on fire, killed a cow and looted all property.
The 15-year-old girl Maria Shch., The daughter of a collective farmer from the village of Bely Rast, was stripped naked by the Nazis and taken down the street, entering all the houses where the German soldiers were.
In the same village, one of the German soldiers snatched her two-year-old daughter from the collective farmer Anna Rovinskaya and wanted to throw her into a burning stove. The girl was saved only by a miracle: shots were heard in the street and the cowardly German dog ran out of the hut.
The Germans committed a terrible massacre of the population in the town of Puchki. The fascists who stormed into this village met the collective farmer Ivan Gavrilovich Terekhin and his wife Polina Borisovna, grabbed the young woman, dragged her aside, pushed her into the snow and, in front of her husband, began to rape her time. The woman screamed, resisted with all her might. Then the fascist rapist shot him point-blank. Polina Terekhina stirred in her agony. Her husband escaped the rapists' hands and ran to the dying woman. But the Germans caught up with him and put 6 bullets in his back ...
In any town, in any house visited by the Nazis, the curses of the elderly and women, the tears of the tortured and tormented run after them. They cry out for revenge. We will never forget this to the damn German fascist dogs: for all their atrocities, they will pay in full, they will answer with their vile life, each and every one!
