At one of the memorial complexes in Lower Saxony (Germany), events were held in memory of the thousands of Soviet prisoners of war who died in the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp. Every year such events are held on the day of the release of concentration camp prisoners. This is reported by the management of the press service. Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation.


In Lower Saxony (Germany) commemorated the Red Army soldiers killed in the concentration camp


This year, Vladimir Kukin, head of the representative office of the main military department of the Russian Federation, other guests from Russia, German public figures and officials took part in the commemorative ceremony.

Vladimir Kukin:
The Second World War left behind deep wounds and pain, which is still alive in the hearts of people. As a result of the national socialist madness, millions of people in Europe died, suffered or lost their entire fortune. We remember all those who gave their lives for their homeland, to win freedom and peace for the whole of Europe. We remember the soldiers, who gave all their strength to bring victory.


The Bergen-Belsen concentration camp was established in 1940 for prisoners of war from France and Belgium.

It was originally designed for 600 prisoners, but as early as July 1941, the number of prisoners of war in the camp grew more than 30 times. Soviet soldiers were brought here. Of the 20 thousands of Red Army fighters trapped in Bergen-Belsen, almost 1942 thousands died in the spring of 18. The overwhelming majority of the deaths of prisoners of war in this camp were hunger and typhoid. The total number of captured fighters killed here has not yet been established. According to the most modest estimates of military historians, it is about 30 thousands of people.

A memorial dedicated to the memory of people tortured in the camp is taken care of by local public organizations and German schoolchildren.

      the Germans remember and honor the dead, and they seized Bandera’s power, they are at war with the monuments, and they have nothing sacred.

        Yes, the Germans are very worthy of this. They still have a sense of guilt before the world for the crimes of Nazism.
        It would be necessary to somehow play on this. Europe urgently needs to be torn away from the United States. Otherwise, this process will be delayed.

    Like this ... The Germans realized what the people of their nation did and were trying to keep history from repeating itself,
    and the followers of fascism in the post-Soviet republics, which suffered the greatest human losses,
    proudly raise the banner of fascism ....
    Shameful and bitter ...

      I absolutely agree with you, Andrey. German discipline and pragmatism, fused with Russian gouging and indifference, and, having as their common basis the historical ability to survive in extreme situations, would give the world a people that would flourish and live without any economic, political and military violence against other nations.

          Russian carelessness is the same Russian "maybe" that went down in history, in other words, the willingness to risk one's life and one's well-being. To risk for the good of yourself, your loved ones, and, I'm not afraid of grandiloquent words, for the good of your Motherland!

      Still, the generation of Germans have tasted the price of fascination with the Nazi ideology of THAT, in their own "skin", and they are trying to explain to the youth, in any case. There are, of course, relapses, if not strange in our country too, but in general to the state. the "Nazi" policy is no longer allowed a "gun shot".

      It is not the Germans who support the Kiev gang, but their government engaged by America, and it is not very active, if you go into details.
      Germany remembers its sins, remembers well. Therefore, actively and firmly does not stick out in our direction.

    I am glad that Germany, having managed to repent for its recent past, can openly and boldly look into the eyes of the whole world. I would like similar, from the lips of the first persons, repentance from the USA - for Hiroshima and Nagasaki, for defoliants and napalm in Vietnam, lawlessness in Panama and Grenada. From NATO - for Yugoslavia, Libya, Syria. But I think we won’t wait ...

      If the translation of the speaker's words is accurate, then - minus this speaker. A set of insignificant, inexpressive, nothing concretely proposing slogans. And even "curtsies" towards Russia sound somehow casual, pale and on duty.

    Outside of Russia, 22 cemeteries of Russian (Soviet) soldiers and officers, in which 574 million people are buried. Among them, those who died during the years of the first and second world wars (including military personnel who died in concentration camps), as well as those who died in the Russo-Japanese War. In Germany, about 5,315 thousand burials. Since 5,5, the federal government has fully paid the costs of maintaining memorials and graves of war. All cemeteries are registered, and care is organized for them, including by local residents. http://www.trud.ru/issue/article.php?id say?id=1993
    What can I say ?! Of course, such an attitude to our fallen compatriots, and of different nationalities, arouses respect. Unlike the Baltic countries and those regions of Ukraine where the memory and honor of our ancestors is offended!

      On the anniversary of the liberation of the camp (15 April 1945) by British troops, LIFE.com presents a series of photographs taken in the camp. When these photographs were released, readers began to write to the editor about "barbarism and human degradation in German society." George Roger - the author of these photographs (later became one of the founders of Magnum) wrote about his impressions, after what he saw ...

      "Ukrainian women cooked food in the dump in the camp. For fuel, they used scraps of clothing that they removed from the corpses. They boil pine needles and roots, the result was something like soup."

      "There were over 5000 bodies in this huge grave. Former SS guards, women and men, brought the bodies and threw them into the pit ... These girls, all of them 20-25 years old, were worse than men. They were very cruel. These girls bodies were burned alive, killed and treated like animals. "

      "These girls seem to be completely indifferent to what they are doing (during the unloading of bodies) ... They calmly stepped on the bodies and under their feet bones and skulls cracked ...".

      Having managed to draw conclusions from its history, first of all for itself, Germany proved that it deserves respect, as well as an individual who publicly admitted his mistakes and condemned himself for them.
      For a long time, ordinary Russians will "push the jamb" towards Germany, but soon, I think, we, Russia and Germany, will still come to the conclusion that "we cannot live without each other." And, if before that we do not fight over the American-created Ukrainian problem, we will show the world an example of truly productive cooperation, with which no currently existing political and economic union can compare in its effectiveness.

    I saw the condition of many cemeteries in Germany. Not only Russian, but also others.
    There is no desire in the Germans to fight with the monuments, but the money for the maintenance is.
    They wish little - the same attitude to their soldiers on Russian soil. They regret what happened. Perceived as a national tragedy. They understand that more of this should not be allowed.
    Not surprised by the article.

    The Germans, they are different. All prototypes of Stirlitz were Germans. Richard Sorge and Rudolf Abel (Fischer) were Germans. Catherine the Great, damn it, was German. The hero of Sevastopol, General Totleben is also a German. And sadly, A. Merkel is neither Italian nor Polish.

    It is not a matter of nationality, and even party affiliation is not always dominant!
    A man must be judged by his actions!
    It is very bad when there are people who act of one reptile, try to impose a yoke on an entire nation! Giving, at the same time, her (nationality) definition!
