A unique selection of photographs.
All of these rare photos have the same story as the war itself is dramatic – the soldiers are captured. And in each picture a whole cocktail of feelings: despair of some and joy of others, cowardice and heroism, determination and humility to destiny. In fact, every photo – reportage from the event, which allows through the decades to see people from that era.
We tried to choose photos that captured the brutality, propaganda or humiliation. If you capture the opponents tend to show interest to each other. But that was then… we must Not forget that in the camps the Nazis had starved to death and destroyed millions of Soviet soldiers. The fate of the Germans caught in the Soviet captivity, was generally more happy.
