"Numbered" children

84
Let us return to the photo I recently posted under the text about the captured Germans. It turns out that there is a description of her in the memoirs of Ivan Narcissov.


"Numbered" children


We are talking about the summer of the year 1944, when the 1-th mechanized Krasnograd Corps liberated Belarus. After the battle, Germans were captured by one of the villages near the house where they had previously located their headquarters. It was a house of a milkmaid with four children. During the occupation, the woman tried to hide her children, but they did not obey, they were very afraid for their mother and returned home all the time. The eldest was 11-12, the youngest was about seven.
These guys first jumped out to meet our fighters. Following them, like other peas, the rest of the boys and girls fell down. In the hands of Narcissova was a camera; apparently, therefore, his first and surrounded by a gang. Ivan Alexandrovich noticed that all the children had small plywood boards around their necks, on which numbers were painted in black paint. All the guys were numbered!

Narcissus began to ask what it was and where it came from. And while listening to the answers, shot these tags, broke them and threw them into the nearest pit. The children said that the police had come up with such a numbering at the very beginning of the occupation. We already knew that children can be skillful and fearless scouts and liaisons. They were afraid that the guys would start helping the partisans, and therefore counted them in such a savage way. The plates are forbidden to take off on pain of death.

At first, the guys did not believe that they could shoot for the removal of plywood. We decided that the Germans intimidated. And one boy (in the memoirs he is referred to as Vasily) took off the plate. On the first day he was captured. Vasily had a younger brother, and led him. Interrogated, but quickly figured out that the act Vasya - this is a protest against the new rules. Vasya and his brother were taken to the center of the village, they gathered all the guys. Announced: here, the younger tablet did not rip off, he is a good fellow. And the senior number was removed, he is a criminal. And shot.

The fascists expected that now the children would be frightened and would not even think about any actions. But Vasya’s death inflamed such hatred that on the same evening, even before curfew, many children gathered at Vasin’s brother and decided to get rid of the plates and throw them into the fire. Let the monsters shoot! Vasina's mother intervened when she heard the guys talk. She closed the stove with her and began to talk about the grief the children would cause to their mothers. The woman cried, remembered Vasya and said: “We now live for your sake. Then we will have no reason to live. Let these damned numbers hang for now. And we will save our strength to fight the fascists. Do not let them win now and leave the village empty, because we will not live without you. ”
And the guys left numbers. But children are children - and it so happened that one boy lost a sign. Grandmother did not let him out of the house, fearing for life. Yes, not kept in the four walls. The boy got out through the window. They grabbed him too. They did not shoot, they just beat me. From beatings and died ...

The Germans closed the school. Previously, several male teachers worked here - they were very old people, one of them with a stick. They were taken to a death camp. Look at this again forced the children. The children were lined up on one side of the street, and the teachers were placed opposite. Speaking forward, the fascist announced that the Germans had seized the traitors, who had instilled in students criminal thoughts about a great Germany. What did the boys and girls who looked into the eyes of their mentors feel at that moment? And what did the mentors feel, powerless at that moment to destroy the evil that created such a massacre? After all, they told the guys that good always triumphs. One of the teachers shouted: “Guys, there will be light, just not the end of the tunnel! Remember us! "...

... And now, in the summer of 1944, the guys told all this to Ivan Alexandrovich. Following him, they tore off their rooms and threw them into that pit. The children seemed to have regained their first and last names. Some of the tankers took matches, set fire to the hated tablets. Those did not catch fire immediately. Apparently, soaked with sweat and tears.

While all this was happening, the German prisoners stood motionless nearby. And suddenly one began to somehow move imperceptibly, moving behind the backs of others. If he didn’t do this, it is possible that they didn’t pay attention to him. But the guys have tenacious eyes. They noticed a bandaged prisoner and began to point at him: “This one! This shot Vasya and teachers hijacked! "

Our soldiers did not even have time to do anything, as a gang of boys ran up to the prisoners, clung to the German, dragged him forward. Tankers thought that now the guys would demand an immediate execution or some other death, more painful. But one of the children shouted: “Take a picture of him! Let the whole world know this Herod in the face! Everyone will spit on his photo! ”

So there was a picture. I do not know the fate of the fascist. And here is another episode. On the same day, the villagers began to see whether it was possible to patch up the huts. One woman began to shut down a broken window with boards. And one of the boys said: “It is a pity that we burned the plates. Plywood is not to blame, it could now serve for good ”. Fascists did not kill the most important thing in children.

      Thanks again Sofia. Thanks Evgeny Nikolaevich. Thanks Allwho was touched by this article. It would seem a small article about a single photograph. But the liberoids did not like something, and what srach (sorry for this word) they made here. It would seem a trifle, the nobility of ordinary people. But as they are contorted, they already wriggle. So today is not in vain.

    The children said that they came up with such numbering at the very beginning of the occupation policemen.

    And the policemen, are these Germans or local traitors? Judging by the story, these are Germans, something like an Einsatzgruppen, and they seem to have had experience.

        Sophia, thank you very much for this article, as well as for the past and the upcoming.
        I apologize, but the question was not for you, but for the members of the forum. It's just that usually local collaborators were called "policemen", and the article deals with the Germans. However, I would like to know what they called the field gendarmerie, punishers, etc. in the occupied territories (specific name).
        P.S. I think if there was a "local", there would be no condescension.

          Yes, I read as if our tankers at 44, taking German prisoners, pulled out Vlasov’s columns, and if there wasn’t a suitable tree nearby, they hung them on the trunks of tank guns.

          Dmitry, the police were almost all ethnic groups in Eastern Europe. I read that the Croats were the most atrocious. The partisans did not even take them prisoner - the execution on the spot.

            the Croats and in their own Yugoslavia did this with the Serbs that the armpit hair stands on end. They were all good. Arms in the hands of the civilian population give a sense of impunity and permissiveness.
            Here you look at the photo of this Fritz - it’s like, just like an ordinary Russian Vanka, thin, dressed incomprehensibly what, fear in his eyes .. But in fact .. In general, you have to pay for everything. If this is his last lifetime photograph - we will not regret it.

                Yes, I remember this character. Judging by the discussion of Vlad the Bloodthirster, another similar one was drawn.
                No matter what orders or the will of the "Fuehrer" the Germans would later justify, we should not worry. Nobody called them to our land to kill and plunder.

                  Whoever had a conscience didn’t make excuses, but did. More precisely - did not. Rommel absolutely certainly received the Führer's order about ... how would it be softer ... politically incorrect attitude towards the Jews. However, no one in Africa Corps (except Rommel, of course) saw this order. He simply took responsibility and ignored the order, not bringing it to his subordinates, although this could come to him very sideways

        I think, dear Igor, that if she writes a book of such stories + photos, and takes part in the competition and wins, then she will not need financial assistance. She will receive a very decent fee + royalties. But the hardest part is to sit down and write!
        By the way, at one time he wrote to the Communist Party of the Russian Federation that it is necessary to support the publication of just such books, put up red booths in cities and distribute discs with good Soviet films to citizens for free for viewing. They still "distribute" ... They don't understand what an excellent PR it would be. Or maybe they don't need it?

    Hmm ... Haven't looked at the site for several hours. I come back - and here Ivan Alexandrovich Narcissov was poured with mud. Thanks to those who protected! And to those who watered - Narcissov lived such a worthy life that to write books about him. He fought, was wounded, and left a huge photographic record of the war. Chevalier of the Order of the Patriotic War. A man of exceptional honesty and decency - I know what I'm talking about, he lived in the same city with me. To dirty his name, and not to thank and honor his memory, means to show his complete insignificance and humiliate himself in a way that no one else will do. Therefore, every such commentary on the topic "fiction, he should take pictures of the signs, but he freed the children" is already a statement in itself: I am stupid.

      How polite you are :) good Without a doubt, the term "stupid" applies to such people about the same as the term "windy" to a 12-point storm :))))
      But in general - you are absolutely right. There was such a Baron Müllenheim-Rechberg, an officer from the battleship "Bismarck", he at one time (under Nazism) studied English with a private teacher (in Germany) I quote his memoirs (not literally):
      "I asked the teacher how it would be in English to" introduce to the dominant ideology ", this term was constantly used on the radio and in print. In response, he answered with irritation:" To lower it to your level .... "

      Indeed, you absolutely do not need to stoop to the level of these ... fabulous ... characters.
      My respect - the material is excellent as always! I must note that when he first saw the photo, he was full of sympathy .... but it turns out. Well, I suppose that at the moment you described, he knew the whole depth of his superhumanity and the superiority of the Aryan race. I see right in my eyes that I knew laughing

    Yes, hard !? Like in Prostokvashino the refrigerator, whose state, and the refrigerator produces the cold, is ours.
    Yes, the state school, but they clean the class at school after whom? The answer is obvious after your loved ones!
    In my opinion, raising a positive attitude to work in children is possible only through work. There is simply no other way.
