A Soviet soldier in Germany

“How should one treat them, Comrade Captain? Just think of it. They were well off, well fed, and had livestock, vegetable gardens and apple trees. And they invaded us. They went as far as my oblast of Voronezh. For this, Comrade Captain, we should strangle them”
–A Red Army sapper to his superior. Many of the Soviet soldiers were “disgusted by the plenty” they encountered as they burned, raped and pillaged their way across Germany.
