They have come to ruin someone elses home … (Rot Fuchs, Germany)

Constantly flashing incomprehensible discussion of German prisoners of war in the Soviet Union leads me to share with readers his thoughts on the matter. At the end of the second World War 11.2 million Germans from the Wehrmacht and the SS were held captive by the Allies. About 8 million of them were Anglo-American, and more than 3 million — in Russian captivity. The Germans were waiting for the respective states, that their prisoners be treated in accordance with the provisions of the Geneva Convention of 1906, the Hague Regulations of Land Warfare 1907 or the Convention on prisoners of war in 1929 But the Nazi Germany from 1939 to 1945. thousand times violated these conventions. The majority of the approximately 6 million Russian prisoners of war were not given even a can of food. "Guidelines on the Protection of Russian prisoners of war" on September 8, 1941 says:

"Ruthlessly resort to the latest measures by the smallest signs of discontent and disobedience! Resistance to oppression inhumane to use a tool. According to the fleeing prisoner of war immediately shoot without warning, leading a shot fire. (…) On the other hand, to the industrious and obedient prisoner of war also can not show softness. He accepts it as a weakness and will make its findings. "

They have come to ruin someone else's home ... ("Rot Fuchs", Germany)

But it was not by force measures, leading to mass death of Russian prisoners. The premise of huge losses, at first, it was missing a systematic supply of food, inspired by order of the High Command of the Wehrmacht.

"… Mainly in 1941 and 1942. introduced and approved by the diets, with full awareness of the consequences in the form of thousands of starving to death and thousands of prisoners. This policy is consistent with the policy of liquidation of famine civilian populations as practiced in the occupied territories of Russian Union. Despite the fact that constantly raised diets until the end of the war, they did not reach either in size or quality of food rations for non-Soviet prisoners of war. In particular, in 1941-1942. epidemic broke out in the middle of the prisoners dysentery and typhus, which claimed the lives of thousands of 10. Due to the long acquired malnutrition in the criteria for overwork and a poor medical care of Russian prisoners of war were simply susceptible to infectious diseases, and in the second half of the war. Mortality rate has stabilized at the highest level, mostly due to the huge number of TB disease … "

This was written by Hans Reichelt in his own, published in 2007, the book "The Germans, who returned from captivity."

From July 1941 to February 1942, so Makarov, eight months from frostbite and ruthless appeal died in German concentration camps, about 2 million Russian prisoners of war. Similarly, a calculated Nazi control "famine" has found its terrible realization. 10's of thousands of Red Army soldiers abducted from Russia have died during transport or died from epidemics in prefabricated camps. From 1941 to 1945. in German captivity Hit 6 million Red Army soldiers, from their live to the end of the war, approximately 630,000. Of the approximately 3.3 million German POWs held in Russian captivity, returned home almost 2 million.

Who is involved in the problems of prisoners of war, must fairly admit that the war against European and other nations of the world began Hitler's Germany. All the fighters at least some parties to the conflict, trapped in captivity, were victims of criminal Nazi ideology, which sought to dominate the world and discredited German genus.

"… Despite the numerous, regrettable deaths of German prisoners of war, in the amount of their own with them, even some not so savagely treated as during the war with Russian prisoners of war, the Germans …"

"… In most states, that after the war were interned German soldiers, lured to their recovery efforts. In France, it looked like a Russian Union and in the UK — as in the United States. You can not repay the victims of one army killed another army. But, nevertheless, we must constantly take into account this context, when we say, or we read about the fate of the individual, the history of which causes a lump in my throat … " (Same creator)

The terrible inflation in the media disk imaging, or historical literature in modern politics all these excesses in the criteria of captivity, especially Russian, pursues only one goal: even in our days are to continue the anti-Soviet persecution! In 2003 came a thick, weighty volume Guido Knopp — the venerable historian channel ZDF, entitled "Prisoners", where there is such a passage:

"… Siberia has become synonymous with suffering and misery eleven million German prisoners of war …"

But, as the reader can see, neither figure nor geography does not correspond to reality. Yet, thinking Knopp mass public perceives. Another example — are shown in the 2008 book Volk Coop "under occupation" of the Russian occupation policy in Germany, this work is the anti-Soviet leaflets faster than serious historical research. He does not even need to take into consideration. But some ought to remember the words of Konrad Adenauer Foundation: "There are things that I'm not even talking to himself."

Liberation occurred multiple threads in certain years from 1945 to 1949. In 1948, the Russian Minister of Foreign Affairs after the Molotov-out in Germany last released prisoners said that the Russian camps are still 890,532 prisoners to be released in 1949

In the late 1949 release of German prisoners of war from the Soviet Union ended transporting 17,538 people. Russian news agency Tass in May 1950 said that this flow repatriation "completed." From now detained in the Soviet Union were only accused of war sins. According to Russian data, there were 35,000. This is a serious work of Andreas Hilger ("German Prisoners of War in the Russian Union from 1941 to 1956", Essen, 2000), published under the patronage of the Dresden Institute of Hannah Arendt *. In their own research work carried out, including in the Russian archives, he came to the exciting conclusion that, Russian The Alliance was "… Clearly intends … to respect the basic principles of international legal standards appeals of prisoners of war …" And that "… the Soviet Union in its own policy towards the prisoners did not pursue the purpose of liquidation or revenge …" There was no set time period, "… which could be planned or carried out the action for the destruction of German prisoners of war … "

Hilger draws on Russian acts 2,388,443 German prisoners of war, of whom were repatriated 2,031,743. In captivity died 356687. The highest mortality rate is explained in particular naughty supply, the fault of which was war:

"… It was a very affluent supply for all — both Russian people and prisoners of war. Often, the Russian people, it was even less … "

Both are approximately 35,000 German prisoners of war (they returned to Germany until 1955), who had been convicted by the courts for the Russian and Nazi war crimes, according to Hilger, of the total number were "a tiny fraction".

There is nothing to add, as the employees of the Insti
tute of Hannah Arendt bourgeois media and historians will be able to hardly be suspected of spreading frivolous historiography.
