Just search in the Holocaust and Warcrimes section here on the Forum, there's a multitude of posts there about the Red Army in Germany.

On the article recently translated on the thread

“Father, shoot me”
http://www.thirdreichforum.com/phpBB2/v ... 85982386c1

you may find the following statistical information:

When the Federal Archives in the mid-1970s evaluated the reports of witnesses, the scientists counted around 3,300 so called crime sites east of the Oder and Neiße where German civilians had been beaten to death or shot, raped to death or burned alive. The Federal Archives concluded that at least 120,000 Germans had died on the flight.


During a recent trip to Germany, I took a look at a book containing an assessment of Red Army atrocities in Germany by German historian Manfed Zeidler, on which the above information seems to be based.

According to this assessment, the Federal Archives were able to establish at ca. 24,500 the number of people killed at 2,600 of the mentioned 3,300 crime sites.

The number of people murdered by the Red Army at the remaining 700 sites could not be established.

The book referred to is the following:

The communist government of GDR(DDR or EAST GERMANY) destroyed most of the proof of soviet war-crimes and atrocities so any number quoted id going to be based on eye witness only.

Did they?

How do you know that?

Again the renegade Indian communist?

Well, numbers given by eyewitnesses tend to be too high rather than too low.

I don't think so.

But I intend to order it and will translate the chapter on Soviet war crimes for this forum.

Cheers,

Roberto
