Poisoned feather. Too many Germanic letters (part of 2)

141
The main task of the Soviet periodical press at all levels during the Great Patriotic War was to raise and strengthen the morale of the citizens of the USSR, instill in people's consciousness the hope of a quick victory over the enemy and conviction in the indestructible combat capability of our army, form a visible image of the enemy, cause a feeling hatred of the invaders. The main theme around which this image of the enemy was formed was, naturally, publications about the monstrous atrocities of the fascists in the territory of the USSR.


Poisoned feather. Too many Germanic letters (part of 2)

Residents of the village next to the hanged Zoya Kosmodemyanskoy.

A terrific story about a girl Tanya (Zoe Kosmodemyanskaya) and a photograph in which she lies in the snow with a noose around her neck - albeit cynically so to say - just a rare success for a propagandist. It was necessary to turn this photo into huge billboards (posters on the sides of roads and on city streets) and write on them: “Tanya gave her life for the Motherland. What are you ready for the Motherland ?! ”or just“ Do not forget, do not forgive! ”- and so everything is clear. But for some reason this was not done by the “tip” of the newspaper ...


That photo ...

At the same time, reports of the Nazi abuse of civilians [1] and Soviet prisoners of war [2] appeared in the newspapers in the very first days of the war. But here, too, there is quite clearly a lack of deep understanding of the problem. So, for example, in all publications that reported on the bullying of German fascists over Soviet prisoners of war, they are captured while being wounded! “Sergeant I. Karasev, who escaped from the German captivity ... witnessed the massacre of wounded prisoners of the Red Army ...” [3] - such articles were printed one after another. However, if you unconditionally believe the newspapers, it turned out that the healthy and full of strength the Red Army fighters were not captured, but found themselves in captivity only after they were seriously injured. But even in this state, they immediately fled from captivity, as did, for example, the seriously wounded Red Army soldier Fesenko, captured by the Germans on the bank of the somehow nameless “River P” [4]. Meanwhile, writing about the prisoners of the Red Army, on the basis of the fact that "the Red Army soldiers did not surrender in captivity," was not followed at all. Do not give up and everything! We should not have placed in the newspaper data on the number of our prisoners. Like, the Germans write their 3,5 million, and in fact just 500 thousands. But even this figure at the time looked just monstrous.

Very little was also published on the release of former Red Army soldiers from captivity. But they were. For example, in 1943, in the Sovinformburo reports, only two messages appeared about the release of our soldiers from German bondage [5]. In 1945, the press mentioned former Soviet soldiers returning from German captivity, only in passing, in articles about the release, and all other prisoners of Hitlerite camps [6]. Much more attention was paid to the fate of Soviet citizens hijacked to work in Germany [7]. But no one interviewed them or even tried to arouse hatred of fascism with a story about the heavy share of our soldiers in German captivity, although during the First World War similar materials in the Russian periodicals were printed all the time, often with photos. Why was the worthy experience of the past not used now?

The Soviet press reported about military operations abroad dryly and passionlessly, without adding any emotion to the content of the articles [8], since who would win there was not clear. But the actions of the local partisans were reported quite differently [9], and it was emphasized that anti-fascist uprisings [10] were constantly breaking out in the Nazi-occupied countries of Western Europe. The newspapers wrote that all strata of the population, including the intelligentsia [11], and even foreign workers who worked in enterprises in Germany, were trying to contribute to the victory over fascism [12].

As already noted, in the early years of the war, the priorities of the Soviet press were the stabilization of the moral climate in Soviet society and the strengthening of the conviction of the civilian population in the early victory of the Red Army over the enemy. To achieve the desired effect, the Soviet press used a wide variety of techniques, including a very primitive property. So, in the reports of the Soviet Information Bureau, which were printed on the front pages in the central newspapers, statements of German soldiers appeared at the very beginning of the war, surrendered in the first hours of military operations against the USSR. Thus, the former soldier Alfred Liskoff, whose appeal to the German soldiers was published by all Soviet newspapers [13], almost became the “protagonist” of the Soviet national newspapers in the first days of the war. It was possible to learn from him that “the German people are waiting for peace,” the German army does not want to fight the USSR, and only “the officer’s stick, the threat of execution forces the German soldier to fight, but he does not want this war, he longs for peace, as he longs for peace all German people. " Further, the Soviet press published appeals and other soldiers of the German army who voluntarily surrendered in the first days of the war. Thus, voluntarily ending the war and surrendering was advised by the crew of the pilots of the German Army Hans Hermann, Hans Kratz, Adolf Appel and Wilhelm Schmidt [14]. And then in the messages of the Soviet Information Bureau began to regularly appear messages about German soldiers and their allies who voluntarily surrendered to the soldiers of the Red Army [15]. They all unanimously declared that they didn’t want to fight, that “war tired” [16], “the war provoked by Hitler brings to all the peoples of Europe, including the German people, only misfortune and death” [17]. In the troops of the Nazi allies, judging by the materials of Soviet newspapers, soldiers were beaten with steel whips and chained to machine guns to force them to shoot, but they still didn’t shoot a single bullet at the Red Army troops [18], while the Germans themselves tried drop bombs in such a way that “they do no harm” [19].

In support of these materials, the Soviet press began, from the very first days of the war, to publish letters of German soldiers killed or wounded during the hostilities. These materials, as well as publications about the military operations of our army, had to convince the population of the quick victory of our people over the fascist invaders and create a bright and expressive image of the enemy. Of these, Soviet citizens learned that defeatism [20] reigned in the enemy’s army. Such a well-established military machine in the battles with all of Europe as the German army, judging by the publications of Soviet newspapers, was characterized by such deep flaws as the lack of military discipline, weakness and cowardice of the military [21], fear of military hardship and deprivation [22], failures food supply [23], and the moral climate among German soldiers was depressing [24].

The letters painted vivid pictures of the hopelessness and despair of the soldiers of the German army, who encountered in the battle with such an unbeatable enemy as the Red Army was. So, from the very first days of the war, the Germans realized that “the Red Army is armed with equipment that is in no way inferior to ours” [25], “the Russians are better and more reliably dressed up for the winter ... They bear the difficulties of campaigns better ... The commanders are brave and have more experience” [26 ], and the servicemen of the German army without tanks “Not soldiers, but some shy rabbits” [27]. Judging by the letters home, German soldiers often had to starve and experience other hardships and deprivations of camp life [28]. In reality, the soldiers of the German army sent letters home of a completely different content and character [29]. Brought up by the German propaganda system on a sense of racial superiority, German soldiers treated the population of the USSR as a tribe of "subhuman" and, accordingly, wrote about this to their relatives and friends [30]. That is what is possible, and it was necessary to tell the readers of Pravda. So that they know that it’s not with the “fearful rabbits” that they have to fight, but with people who just don’t consider them to be people and bring them death, destruction and slavery worse than they were in Ancient Rome.

In the 1943 year after the decisive Stalingrad battle, the pessimism of the letters of the German military in Soviet newspapers increased even more [31]. The soldiers of the German army were simply driven to despair, and were forced to eat dogs and cats [32]. But it is unlikely that such letters would be missed by the German postal censorship. And then the question is - why did they write them then? And after all, everyone knew that we have censorship and should be with the Germans. And then suddenly such letters ... But what about the German Gestapo then?

Interestingly, the analysis of the frequency of these materials allows us to conclude that the peak of the publication of letters from German soldiers in the Soviet press fell on 1941-1942, i.e. for the most difficult period for our army. In 1943, the letters of the Germans were printed less and less, and at the end of the war they disappeared from the pages of the Soviet press altogether, giving way to oral testimony by captured soldiers of the German army.

In addition to the letters of German soldiers, letters of the German civilian population to their families and friends fighting on the Eastern Front were also published. The impression from them is that there was no military censorship in Germany, let alone the Gestapo, at all! Reading them, Soviet citizens could see how hard life was in Germany, and, therefore, to conclude that the collapse of the Hitlerite military machine should happen very quickly. And how could it be otherwise, if the civilian population [33] of Germany suffered from cold and hunger, and “various diseases are rampant among children” [34]. From 1943 onwards, news of the consequences of the bombings began to appear in the letters of the German civilian population (this is nonsense, no military censorship would have simply missed it, especially German, and smart people understood this, of course!) By British Air Force planes [35] . Here again, it should be said that such publications were popular in the Soviet press only in the first years of the Great Patriotic War, and in 1944-1945. on the pages of Soviet newspapers, they almost never appeared.

In addition to reports of the dismal state of the German workers and peasants [36] and the defeatist attitudes among the civilian population [37], it was reported that their food supply “is becoming threateningly bad. Half-starved rations are reduced every month ... In the cities, cases of scaling disease have become more frequent ”[38], and“ signs of real decay are found in German industry ”[39],“ terrible fatigue reigns everywhere ”[40]. Again, when writing such materials, you should look very carefully at the time. And keep in mind when this or that event happens. It was obvious that victory would not be soon. Otherwise, people will say - "they said fatigue, but they all fight and fight." And it will be like from the “world revolution”, which was written about both in the 20s and even in the 30s, but it didn’t come at all.

By the way, were there examples of successful foresight at that time? That is correctly disseminated information! Yes they were!!! But not in the newspapers, but in the movies. In 1943, the director Pyryev began making the film “Moscow's Daughter”, which was released on 1944 in films entitled “At six o'clock in the evening after the war”. And there the forecast for victory was voiced very accurately. The person thought, maybe he consulted with the experts, and gave an amazing means of mass exposure to the audience, a very lyrical and optimistic, brightening expectation and its hardship, with a wonderful ending. That is, some people could do it ...

    The press, photographs are an important source, and their analysis provides a lot of valuable information.
    The article is based on a rich base.
    And that's great
    The executioners did not think that the photo with Zoya, tortured by them, would fall into the hands of Soviet soldiers.
    And it cost the lives of the beasts from the 332th regiment of the Wehrmacht, which were not taken prisoner
    Thank you!

      You wrote it well. Indeed, any action it ... should be deliberate, not spontaneous. High moral behavior is always rational. The behavior of the Germans was immoral and ill-conceived. Hence the logical ending!

      brought HARM much more than good, dampening the fighters, creating a misconception about a strong and very skilled enemy.
      Nonsense about the "class friends" of workers and peasants worked since the pre-war times. WHAT did the German “friends” —workers and animal peasants in our country — see during the war.
      Veterans recall how it was not recommended to talk about the strengths of enemy aircraft and tanks, which was regarded as an eulogy of enemy technology.

        - that’s exactly what we know today - that what wrote the Soviet press was the TRUTH !!!
        "in September 1941, the chief of the General Staff of the German Army, Franz Halder wrote in his diary: the war is likely to be lost by Germany" -for the way, he wrote ....

        (From the book of Robert Kershaw "1941 through the eyes of the Germans"):
        “During the attack, we stumbled upon a light Russian T-26 tank, we immediately clicked it directly from the 37-graph paper. When we began to approach, a Russian leaned out of the hatch of the tower to the waist and opened fire on us with a pistol. It soon became clear that he was without legs, they were torn off when the tank was hit. And despite this, he fired at us with a pistol! ” / Gunner of anti-tank guns /
        “We almost did not take prisoners, because the Russians always fought to the last soldier. They did not give up. They cannot be hardened with ours ... ”/ Tanker of Army Group Center / /
        After a successful breakthrough of frontier defense, the 3th battalion of the 18th infantry regiment of Army Group Center, which consisted of 800 people, was fired upon by a unit of 5 soldiers. “I did not expect anything like this,” Major Neuhof admitted to his battalion doctor, the battalion commander. “It is sheer suicide to attack the forces of the battalion with five fighters.”
        “On the Eastern Front, I met people who can be called a special race. Already the first attack turned into a battle not for life, but for death. ” / Tanker of the 12th Panzer Division Hans Becker /
        “You just won’t believe this until you see it with your own eyes. The soldiers of the Red Army, even burning alive, continued to shoot from the blazing houses. " / Officer of the 7th Panzer Division /

        and this is about READINESS to the war of the Germans
        “The proverb quickly came into use among German troops:“ three French campaigns are better than one Russian one. ”So in the fall of 1941, 70 levels of cargo were required to support the German fronts, while the daily supply did not exceed 23 convoys. As a result, the Nazi troops there was a shortage of ammunition and new equipment. As a result, the unsuccessful blitzkrieg ended on October 25, 1941, after which the war began, for which Germany was not ready. "

          So in the fall of 1941, to secure the German fronts, 70 trainloads of cargo were required daily, while the daily supply did not exceed 23 convoys. As a result, the Nazi troops experienced a shortage of ammunition and new equipment.

          thank you should say sovereign Nicholas I. soldier Our track is wider, and the Germans alter it until the end of the 41st. By the way, they captured few of our locomotives and wagons. hi that’s why the main supply came from vehicles, which is in the ratio "different brands of cars, including trophy (difficulty with spare parts) / length of road and condition of roads / bearded partisans", of course, it gave an unsatisfactory result. But do not forget that the Red Army offensive in the winter of 41-42 did not achieve much either due to poor supply. The shell hunger was especially felt, and there was no fault in the rear services - the evacuated plants did not have time give the norm. request Even 120-mm mortars were diverted to the rear due to the lack of mines. Without absolutely idealizing allies, I think that the mobility of the Red Army came into decent shape only in 1943, and it was thanks to the receipt of a large number of vehicles through Lend-Lease. soldier drinks

            Nikolai, I have never heard that the Germans would change the track. This, by the way, is a double-edged sword. In the WWI, there was projectile-cartridge hunger. However, our track is better, the carrying capacity will be more than that of the Europeans. But I read that the Ministry of Transport ordered one hundred thousand greenhouses for 41 years. This is about three to four million fighters. Misunderstanding.

                Yeah, I found it. Well 450 km. - chickens to laugh. But. If the Germans could, as I understand it, simply drag one of the rails closer to the other, then ours would hardly be able to expand the paths in the WWII, in Europe, due to the narrow sleepers. I don’t remember the width of the sleepers in the narrow gauge railway, although I studied a couple of classes at the Children's Railway. wink

          This :
          Judging by the publications of Soviet newspapers, such a well-tuned military machine as the German army in battles with all of Europe, was characterized by such deep flaws as lack of military discipline, weakness and cowardice of military personnel [21], fear of military hardships and deprivations [22], disruptions in food supply [23], but the moral climate among German soldiers was depressing
          It was a lie.

            “After their winter retreat under the pressure of the Red Army, when discipline in the German forces was shaken, the Germans took some harsh measures to restore discipline, which led to good results. They formed more than 100 penal companies from the guilty guilty discipline or instability, set they were sent to dangerous sections of the front and ordered them to atone for their sins with blood. They further formed about a dozen penal battalions of commanders who were guilty of violating discipline by cowardice or stability, deprived them of orders, put them on even more dangerous sections of the front and ordered them to atone for their sins with blood. in the event of an attempt to surrender. As you know, these measures have taken effect, and now the German troops are fighting better than they fought in the winter "
            3) about the failure in the supply cited earlier ..

The Germans are a cultural nation, advanced, civilized ...” ..Yes and then the Soviet press used the same techniques that the Entente press had in years PMV ..

      And they did not know how to dress properly, and the laces on their boots, but about electricity and TV --- they did not know how ...... And they did not know how to read! But I’m such a good fellow — already from the age of 4,5 I was pleased with reading books around! And I didn’t want to accept the older’s arguments that it was a different life and they “were the first”

    Enraged by its tremendous losses, which can no longer be hidden and more difficult to replenish, vaguely, through the fog of alcohol and blood, realizing the inevitability of the ultimate defeat in the World War, the German army covers itself with shame; she tortures and kills prisoners. So, take the rank of scoundrel, the German Nazi army! Here are the facts:

    “The Germans put me, wounded and captured west of the city of Velikiye Luki, into a barn where there were 13 captured Red Army men and one captain. After about 10, we were all taken out of the barn and built in one line. Then a German soldier incapacitated the captain and two Red Army men. A series of Germans, the soldiers began to shoot point-blank at the captain, shot him in the right, then the left arm, then the left leg and the right leg. When the captain fell, one of the German soldiers bent down and cut off his nose with a knife, then his ears and the end of the knife gouged out his eyes. The captain's body shuddered convulsively. Then another soldier shot him in the chest and killed him.

    With two Red Army soldiers and German soldiers did the same. All Germans were drunk.

    After the execution, we, the survivors, were ordered to bury the prisoners and again they drove us into the barn. For three days they gave us neither water nor bread. At night we made a dig and left. ” (Red Armyman Bystrakov D.E.).

    “Near the collective farm“ Plowman ”we found the corpse of the Red Army soldier Hoffmann. Both hands were chopped off, his eyes gouged out, his tongue cut off. An 5-terminal star was laid out next to his corpse from the stumps of his hands. ” (Collective farmer Petrova).

    “In the village of Okhotichi, I saw 2 the corpse of the tortured commanders of the Red Army. The peasants said that the Germans standing in this village captured these lieutenants. They were ordered to strip naked and interrogators beat them with anything and pricked with bayonets, and then stabbed. Their bodies were covered with stab wounds.

    Here in Bykhov, on the square, 4 barbed wire cages were built. They contain in each person 200 — wounded Red Army soldiers, red commanders and non-military — Soviet and party workers, many of them 15 — 16-year-old Komsomol members.

    The Germans do not feed these prisoners in cages, daily pour a little water into the trough so that people dying of thirst drink on all fours and throw a dozen raw potatoes into the cage. I personally saw how a fascist soldier threw a skin torn from a ram into a cage. Prisoners gnawed at this skin. If a person wants to move from place to place in a cage, German sentries shoot him. I don’t know what happened to these unfortunates, I managed to escape ... ”(Military lawyer M. Kapustyansky).

    “Our unit knocked out the Germans from the village of Ya. In the courtyard of a house, we found 7 killed Red Army soldiers. Everyone's legs are chopped off. One has a stomach open. This was done by the Germans before fleeing the village. ” (Machine gunner Peter Fanaryin).

    Enough! The list of tortures and torments of captured, in most cases wounded, soldiers of the Red Army is very long. These are not isolated sad cases, this is the system of education of the German army. Instead of dehumanizing a German soldier, he, the machine gun, is allowed to unleash dark instincts within himself: a potential libertine - dissolute, a potential tormentor - torture, enjoy dying screams, blow up your nostrils, a potential thief - steal. For this, when necessary, you will die for the sake of Hitler’s psychopathic ambition, for the sake of the Goering concerns and other bastards, who divided all six continents of the globe in advance.

    At the same time, reports of the abuse of the Nazis by the civilian population [1] and Soviet prisoners of war [2] appeared in newspapers in the very first days of the war. But here it’s quite clear there is a lack of a deep understanding of the problem. So, for example, in all publications reporting the bullying of German fascists over Soviet prisoners of war, they are captured when they are wounded!

    In my opinion, the author has a misunderstanding of the problem. There is a war of extermination, it is necessary to raise the morale of the soldiers and the motivation of the civilian population. And here to paint what kind people and civilizers came to Soviet land? Thank God there were no Kolya boys from Urengoy then.
    And it is quite logical that there were no such pictures in print, and that was absolutely right!

    And it was necessary to publish this:

    or that:

    The author’s accusations against the Soviet press are akin to accusations against a man who used an unacceptable technique in the sports arena against an adversary in a deadly combat.
    After all, they wrote already that it is impossible to approach the events of those days with the standards of today.

    At the initial stage of the war, the propaganda goals are simple, clear and correct:
    1. To arouse personal hatred of the enemy.
    2. Convince the people of the inevitability of our victory.
    3. Convince each individual person of the need and usefulness personal, at the limit of power, the contribution of each to the fight.
    Proceeding from these goals, materials were also written to newspapers, which can also be divided into three groups:
    1. The Germans are non-humans, animals, sadists, they need to be killed ruthlessly and mercilessly and this will not be a murder. (My grandfather served in regimental intelligence and, although he didn’t like to talk about the war, he wasn’t a talker, he personally killed about a dozen Germans, from a machine gun and in hand-to-hand combat. And no remorse, bad dreams, etc. . And the pig could not prick).
    2. The situation of the Germans is awful - the economic and political collapse is about to come, you need to endure a little and Germany will crumble. From this point it was more difficult, but it was absolutely necessary, people had not what to believe, but knowthat "victory will be ours", that it is inevitable and close, that you need to press a little more with all your might and that’s all - victory. And they clicked. And more, and more. And yet they finished off in four years.
    3. The feat can be accomplished by anyone, the most ordinary Soviet people make them daily, every hour. Everyone can accomplish the feat - big and small, weak and strong, with a higher education and with three classes, the main thing is perseverance and resilience. And even if you are left alone in the position, stand to the last, because there is one soldier in the field, if he is stalled and ready for self-sacrifice.
    By the way, it would probably be interesting to analyze the shifts of the main accents of Soviet propaganda in the context of changing the situation on the fronts. For example, towards the end of the war, there was more talk about the need to improve the combat skills, the international fraternity of working people

      Michael, I have long had such thoughts. Now, no matter what the war, thousands of people with disfigured souls are returning home after it. Who cannot find themselves in a peaceful life.
      So ... I do not remember anywhere in my memories that one of ours complained about life. And so that someone goes crazy after the war, according to sources. hi
      But the Allies were crazy for a bunch of people, psychiatric losses exceeded the irrevocable! There is a cult book by Marine Lackie, "A helmet instead of a pillow." Reading it, the feeling that the author was more worried about inconvenience than war. At least more space in the description is given to them.

        My father told me that in the spring of 1944 they spent a week without a break in the floodplains of the Dniester waist-deep in ice-cold water (they put a mortar on the back of a soldier) and no one got sick. No colds and colds!

        What is it? just a difference of memories, or a difference of mentalities?

        Who knows, Nikolai?
        I suppose there is a brain defensive response to stress. My grandfather had stress, despite the fact that he personally killed a dozen people, deliberately killed, deliberately and saw how they die, was not. In his mind, the Germans were not perceived as people, just like himself - this is the very defense. And this, of course, was helped by propaganda.
        Surely there were those who did not succumb to propaganda or did not succumb to such an extent, or the propaganda was not so effective, they saw in the enemies of the people - it was harder for them. We had to artificially divert the brain to minor problems, which could be household comforts, or rather, their absence. It is much more comfortable to worry about the lack of pillows, hot meals, or women, than because you just participated in a massacre of people, during which you personally had to feel the thrill of a living body that you planted on a bayonet, or to hear the crunch of the skull that you smashed with the butt.
        In everyday life, such mechanisms are constantly involved: “everyone does this,” “he was the first to start,” etc. In order not to worry too much if you do something that goes with your moral attitudes.

          I think that the last role was played by the fact that our soldiers saw much more “art” of the occupiers than the allies. Those could try to treat the Germans as opponents. Ours, it seems, was treated like murderers.

              You're right. But there is one caveat. Ours at war was easier with the experience of "military psychological trauma" - we really were right, we fought back, freed and avenged what the Germans did to our country.
              It seems that the motivation among the allies was somewhat different.

                The point here is, in my opinion, that this appeal is clear to everyone and everyone --- it is necessary to protect and preserve not only oneself, but also relatives, relatives, territory --- everything, starting from the Little Homeland and beyond. And now, on the other hand, we hear slogans about the defense of democracy. And very differently understand this generals, soldiers. What is the motivation? Ambiguity. Probably before they had it. Slogans are one, but inside another.

            About my grandfather, in any case, I can say that he did not see the German "arts". He fought in 42 for only three months near Rzhev, was injured, lost a leg.
            When I, a naive fifteen-year-old kid, asked my grandfather if he had killed in a war, he replied that he had killed about ten Germans, but he didn’t exactly count. And then in the course of further conversation I said something like "but you killed ten people." And he said so calmly, casually: “We didn’t consider them as people”. He told a lot more that evening ..
            But then, when he fought, in 42, no one knew about the German "death factories", our correspondents who wrote about the tortured Red Army men did not even represent the real extent of Nazi terror, compared to which one tortured officer or soldier just a slight pale episode. All this began to be opened only when our people went ahead and began to liberate their territory, in which the Germans were in charge for years.
            More, by the way, since then I have never been able to talk about war with my grandfather, although I have repeatedly tried. Once I just got him to talk. He died when I was 23.

        The Vietnam Syndrome appeared among the Americans when, from the jungle battles, soldiers on airplanes got home in a peaceful environment in a few hours.

              there was generally an ass. At first, the Americans lost a lot of people (or did not lose. Everything depended on art and air training), then the Japanese began to iron everything that was at hand, from battleships to bombers, tanks and flamethrowers. As a rule, during the storming of each atoll, not a single Japanese was left alive.

    I remember Guderian wrote in his memoirs that on the first day of the war they discovered the bodies of their scouts brutally tortured by the Red Army. The author could for comparison give at least some information about such actions of the enemy. Gebeels will forever remain the champion of lies.
    So the author is trying to say that the Russians are forbidden to fight tanks against tanks, against planes against planes, against propaganda by propaganda, such as inhumane.

            Yes, I also read "Crystallizing the Public" by E. Burneys and S. Black, and Arthur Poinsonby. The book "How to Penetrate the system" was completely read in English. In 2005, my graduate student defended her. By the way, extracts from the book of Poinsonby, not all of it, but a lot of it, we have in Russian in translation. Type, Arthur Poynsonby "Lies during the war" (1928) and everything will be revealed to you. It was from this book, by the way, that Goebbels took most of his "wise" statements about propaganda.

    Enough! The list of tortures and torments of captured, in most cases wounded, soldiers of the Red Army is very long. These are not isolated sad cases, this is the system of education of the German army. Instead of dehumanizing a German soldier, he, the machine gun, is allowed to unleash dark instincts within himself: a potential libertine - dissolute, a potential tormentor - torture, enjoy dying screams, blow up your nostrils, a potential thief - steal. For this, when necessary, you will die for the sake of Hitler’s psychopathic ambition, for the sake of the Goering concerns and other bastards, who divided all six continents of the globe in advance.

    Meanwhile, writing about the captured Red Army men, proceeding from the fact that “the soldiers of the Red Army are not surrendering,” was not at all necessary. Do not give up and all! Nor should we put in the newspaper data on the number of our prisoners. Like, the Germans write them 3,5 million, but in fact only 500 thousand. But even such a figure at that time looked simply monstrous.

    Dear Vyacheslav Olegovich, you once again urge you to lie, only to lie expertly, and not like in the newspapers of that time. Forgetting at the same time that the Soviet Union collapsed also because no one believed official propaganda.
    Meanwhile, according to the historian Isaev, the Germans throughout the war registered 5 million shoots of prisoners. That is, every prisoner tried to escape at least 2 times! And the NKVD during the whole war registered about 700 Germans escapes.

        Firstly, sources are good, but bad how you present them. After all, it is well known that as you report, they will be accepted. And you write without taking into account the historical framework, and do not even understand this, and continue to mock at the memory of our fathers.
        Secondly, where did you find the petty-bourgeois consciousness of the Soviet people during the war? Then it was: Everything for the front - everything for the Victory! Petty-bourgeois psychology emerged after the war.

The village constantly went to the city and brought this psychology with it. "What do you have to understand that the process of changing the mass consciousness is long, it doesn’t happen that you fall asleep one, but wake up - the other." So it cannot be that it came from nowhere? So it was during the war years, if it came later. Consciousness in itself does not arise, it comes from grandfathers, mothers and grandmothers!

            Many representatives of the Soviet people, especially the peasantry, always had a petty-bourgeois consciousness, but it was neutralized by the collectivist consciousness of the working class, including MTS workers, until the working class suffered heavy losses during the war. In addition, we have about 70 million people who were in the occupied territory, where in order to survive we had to engage in scrubbing, small business, and even theft, and this does not add socialist consciousness. This petty-bourgeois mass swept the whole country. While I.V. was alive Stalin restrained this wave, and after his death, Khrushchev became the spokesman for the aspirations of all this mass.

              Good day, Alexander! After Stalin's death, changes in the leadership came into effect (decrease in rotation, horizontal movement became more, the term party-economic asset appeared and much more, for example, a change in the payment system for rational proposals ....) Just these changes characterize the development of bourgeois psychology above, due to closer contacts with overseas.
              It seems to me that the population that created the recovery from the Second World War received an example of this psychology from above. BUT .... not yet read everything on the topic.

          In the novel "On Fire", Henri Barbus, describing one of the battles of the First World War on the Western Front, writes that the French army was experiencing a huge shell hunger, and the enemy (Germany) was constantly raiding them.
          Erich Maria Remarque, in turn, describing the same battle in his novel “On the Western Front Without Change”, also wrote that the German army is experiencing great hunger, but the enemy fired on them continuously.

Your pen is not driven by a scientist, but by a PR journalist who chases after the fried facts and then presents them in the form in which they are ordered.
              But Barbusse and Remarque are serious people, they wrote their novels on the basis of historical documents and, in my opinion, were even participants in those events, but the genre of the novel does not provide for links. But they did not escape the subjective assessments of the same event. So links are not a guarantee against erroneous evaluations of great writers and from the deceit of PR journalists.

    Moreover, German propaganda was based on the false ideology of racial superiority.
    As for the shoots, it’s one thing to run away from the camp in Poland (and there were just a lot of lagoons there), and other European countries, and another to run away from the camp in Kolyma, or from Vorkuta ... So this is not an indicator, or rather not an obvious indicator.

      the point is that its effectiveness could easily be increased significantly.

      For all the shortcomings you mentioned, our propaganda was very effective. These shortcomings only from your point of view, from the point of view of those who managed this process, everything was fine. From the point of view of those who read these articles, everyone also understood correctly. And the result confirms this. I respect your work in the archives, but I do not agree with your interpretation of the articles.
      At the beginning of the war, after several air rams we had committed, our pilots began to be glorified. After some time, they were faced with the fact that pilots on serviceable planes, with unspent ammunition, are ramming, imitating (using modern slang) the heroes who are boasted, and it is very bad to lose a serviceable car and a pilot. They gave the command behind the scenes to play back. That is, they kept a finger on the pulse, there was feedback, there were mistakes, but they were corrected.
      it’s one thing to flee the camp in Poland (and there were just a lot of camps), and other European countries, and another to flee the camp in Kolyma, or from Vorkuta ... So this is not an indicator, or rather not an obvious indicator.

      At the same time, ours were not afraid to flee from concentration camps in Germany, France, Italy and other countries for thousands of kilometers. Since childhood, I remember Fedor Poletaev, who escaped from captivity, fought and died in Italy. So this is a very obvious and objective indicator.
      But after the war, our agitators and propagandists lost their skills. At the time of the first Chechen war, our propaganda was offended, I just have no other words. The second is slightly better, but also very far from the time of the Second World War. Well, what we are seeing now on all fronts, we see for ourselves. If you could analyze modern propaganda in this way, you would be entirely on your side.

          Comments forum users do not always depend on their knowledge. Most often ---- from time to time. For members of the forum this is a hobby. In contrast to writing articles.

          P.S. Keyword ---- 2 years.

    links are not a guarantee against erroneous evaluations of great writers and from the deceit of PR journalists.

    No guarantee! Since you yourself can see everything with your own eyes on it ... Another thing is that laziness or just do not want to. Afraid of losing the innocence ...

      Alas, not always. A guarantee can only be if the author has elementary decency

    which once again emphasizes your qualifications.

    No matter how much you emphasize it, only VAK can judge it. Are you a member of the HAC? If not, then your opinion is not worth a cent.

    Yes, they generally went on a roll. And today's ads are just as raucous. I’m looking for a watch for myself, I’m reading type customer reviews, everything is written under one carbon copy. Super, delivered on time, very satisfied.

    Better go to the store, look live and buy. I bought online 7 years ago, and now in a regular store. And he presented them to his brother. Now mostly quartz watches, so they are accurate. The price is mainly for the brand.

    from the point of view of those who managed this process, everything was fine

    And from the point of view of those at the top, everything is always normal.

    chasing fried facts and then presents them in the form in which they were ordered.

    It is strange, in my opinion, that there was a scoop and bent overnight, a long-known fact for everyone ?! Nothing can be steeper than that!

      As you say: the “scoop” has long been bent, why then does this fact torment you so much? You cannot pass by in any of your publications in order not to kick. It is still visible in your gut you feel that the hour is not far off when everything will return to normal and you will have to answer for everything.
