My great grandparents were wealthy landowners in Latvia. My great grandfather in fact commanded the Czars calvary during WWI. Naturally when Stalin seized power he and his wife were a little dissmayed. When the Nazis invaded, they welcomed them, and offered their estate as a command center. My grandma has told me stories of the Nazi troops and she has always said they were the kindest group of boys she has ever encountered and even played cards and other games with them. Unfortunately, Stalin regained his ground and my great grandfather and all of his sons/brothers were captured and died in Siberia. My grandma and her mother/sisters escaped to Nazi Germany where they boarded a ship to New York.
Tdlr: Nazi soldiers were just regular guys like any other. Stalin was worse than Hitler but they won't tell you that in history books.
>>82330 In some cities here in minnesota we let the german POW's go and they actually decided to stay. I live in a small German town and work at a liquor store. An old man comes in every couple of weeks with a thick Bavarian accent, and the town rumor is he was a POW that decided to stay.
>>82225 Tu tagad dziivo amerikaa? My great grandma had the same story basically. Pretty wealthy family kurzemee got a bomb dropped on their house and lost everything. Said the germans were super nice and brought them supplies and helped out with things. Still have some random german shit at my aunts house like a heart shaped waffle maker.
>>82454 So....do you get all your history from /pol/?
No, and its pretty fucking funny how you think people living in France, the nation which suffered the MOST DEATHS IN WW1, actually welcomed Germany starting another.
Which is why towns were looted and decimated because of people fleeing. The only people left in the towns were drunks or those who were too poor.
>Ukrainians hated communism
You know what they hated more? Germans taking over. Hence, why, in one episode, Ukrainian resistance tied German soldiers together, leaving nothing but their helmets on. They poured freezing water over their whole bodies. These German soldiers froze to death, stuck together in a giant block of ice in the cold Soviet winter.
Why the fuck are you such a god damned idiot that you defend Nazi Germany?
Where did it go wrong in your life? You look at a guy like Hitler who lied and cheated his way into power, destroyed a country, attempted to destroy Europe, and you look at him and think..."Hmm...yep, that guy was right!"
He's a fucking retard and anyone who still defends that imbecile is a moron. Fuck off back to /pol/
>>82936 So, what books have you read, big guy? Wanna post something from them?
How can an expert not even form a single sentence? Seriously, learn how to not green text for once and I may stop laughing at you. Actually, I'm not sure if I should laugh or cry that someone in 2015 still defends Hitler.
>>82760 Oh wow, it's good to see the diversity of ideas in this board. From what I've seen, when anyone has an opinion that circumvents the mainstream narrative in any way whatsoever there's always someone like you there to tell them to fuck off back to /pol/. I thought this was supposed to be a board for discussion, how about you follow that. Instead of telling him to fuck off, address his arguments and don't just tell him to go away. Newsflash, history is usually offensive. History is controversial. History requires acknowledgement and discussion of dissenting beliefs. If you're in need of a hugbox or safespace, then a board meant for discussion of history is probably not for you, especially here on 4chan. I recommend Reddit and Tumblr. Echo chambers are rigorously maintained there.
From where do you draw this? Often times the Wehrmacht moved on, it was when the local police force and anti-partisan movements were established that things became brutal
I'm not entirely supportive of the "open arms welcoming as liberators" but in many small countries that fucking hated the Soviets they were most certainly seen as a better alternative than the Soviets, especially because they knew once the Soviets rolled back in they would be subject to punishment for not dying to them
>>81708 Nazis =/= German Army in WWII. Although technically all considered de facto members of the Nazi party (true Nazis if you will), many of the soldiers and commanders of the German army refused to carry out orders to purge or massacre prisoners and civilians. It was usually the SS who did a lot of the purging which the German army was officially tolerant of, but many diaries and accounts reveal that it was at least somewhat disliked by the soldiers who weren't quite as naive as some.
It's a bunch of Zaparhozhian Cossacks writing an epic troll letter to the Sultan of the Ottoman empire basically telling him to go fuck himself after he ordered them to submit to his rule. Highlights include:
>O sultan, Turkish devil and damned devil's kith and kin, secretary to Lucifer himself. >The devil excretes, and your army eats. >You will not, you son of a bitch, make subjects of Christian sons >fuck your mother. >You Babylonian scullion, Macedonian wheelwright, brewer of Jerusalem, goat-fucker of Alexandria, swineherd of Greater and Lesser Egypt, pig of Armenia, Podolian thief, catamite of Tartary, hangman of Kamyanets, and fool of all the world and underworld, an idiot before God, grandson of the Serpent, and the crick in our dick.
