Russian inmate points an identifying and accusing finger at a Nazi guard who was especially cruel towards the prisoners in Buchenwald camp.
Apologies it doesn’t automatically show.
If anyone can give me some Twitter image posting advice, I’d like to hear it.
This one works for me.
Many years ago I was reading a history book about WW II, borrowed from a library. Near the end of the book there was a picture of American soldiers shooting captured SS guards at a newly-liberated death camp.
No trial. The GI’s just lined the SS men up against a wall and shot them. This was certainly a reaction to the horrors the Americans had just seen. Was this shooting a war crime, or street justice? I’d lean towards the second explanation.
""Eyes of Hate," a photograph of Goebbels(the global warming guy) after he finds out the photographer was Jewish.
Really? Is there sound it this? He could be saying something like, “Hey, will you take 10 marks for that wound badge?” From the looks on the face of the Wehrmacht guy in the background, he was disgusted with the SS guy. The Navy guy looks like he is being searched? The trouble with photos is each can have 10,000 words. My guess is, these were German PWs being housed in one of the camps. The Russians kept many there after the war, and the treatment in them didn’t differ from the Germans. If there was ever two sides of the same make up at war against each other it was Nazi Germany and Soviet Russia. Maybe Truman was right?
Payback is like karma-a bitch.

I had an uncle who was in the U.S. Army at the liberation of Buchenwald. He said that some liberated prisoners tore Nazi guards apart.
Ah ha! Fake photo! Look its Vin Diesel playing a German officer! >s<
Quite similar. Good eye.
“The Russians kept many there after the war, and the treatment in them didnt differ from the Germans. If there was ever two sides of the same make up at war against each other it was Nazi Germany and Soviet Russia. Maybe Truman was right?”
Yes very much so. And today, while Germany officially recognizes their wrongdoings - Russia does not, give or take one or two meager monuments to Gulag victims.
Rather, at the behest of Putin, Stalin is once again glorified. “For saving the world from fascism.”
This holds the country back.
