Russians frequently cite this alleged war crime as Exhibit A of German brutality during the war. The peasants were subsistence farmers, barely scratching out a living. Burning their homes and barns almost ensured that they would perish over the harsh winter. Now it turns out Stalin’s Jewish henchmen did it.
Mainstream media, ‘the keyboard government plays on, notoriously leads the charge against Russia and China. Nothing shames the poison pen scribblers. Caught constantly telling blatant untruths about Russia, criticism and even outrage at Press lying runs like water off a duck’s back.
At the onset of the internet, a pundit remarked that future society would be divided between the computer literate and those who failed to keep up. What was the outcome of that prediction?

From May 1945, the elected members of the German Reichstag were illegally arrested by the victorious allied armies.

Perhaps it is a yearning for old values; on the other hand, it could be an instinct for impending change or a nose for a fast buck. Whatever it is, demand for Reich related objet d’art, books and art is building up a head of steam.
The largest military operation in history commenced on 22 June 1941. Millions of German troops crossed the German-Soviet border and clashed with the Red Army. Adolf Hitler and German commanders expected to be able to defeat the Soviet Union in three months.
I make no apologies for spurning the pomp and pageantry that bull-horns Remembrance Sunday. There is much about the war that knows no political or national boundaries; war is a monument to human frailty, not strength.
Unelected warlord Winston Churchill said to the Germans in January 1945, ‘We Allies are no monsters. This, at least I can say, on behalf of the United Nations, to Germany. Peace, though based on unconditional surrender, will bring to Germany and Japan immense and immediate alleviation of suffering and agony.’
