    The Red Army's Forgotten Photographer
    Photographs by the Soviet photographer who took the Reichstag Flag pictures.

    Careful, some quite grisly pictures with body parts etc.

    It's quite a lot of photos, so it will take long to load.

    Cheers Za, Some remarkable pictures in there, the bodies on the Park Bench is quite intriguing. I wonder what their story is-Collaborators?

    Cheers for posting those photos. The blown off legs made a strong impression.

    What a fine collection of photos. Very thought provoking. Some of the Capital cities that fell to the Soviets. There's a number of photos that I recognise but some good ones that I had never seen before.

    Amazing collection of photos. I was thinking what a subject for a few 'then and nows' then saw Owen had beaten me to it.

    I recognise a lot of those locations in Berlin, Vienna and Budapest from business trips and family holidays over the years. War is a terrible thing. Buildings can be restored, but destroyed and broken lives can not; very poignant.
