Fall of Berlin - New Soviet archives

Russia, for the 75th anniversary of the victory over Germany, is opening some of its archives.

Two examples:
1. The document, dated 30 April 1945, from Zhukov to Stalin reporting that the Soviets took the Reichstag and at 14:25 raised the Soviet flag on it.

2. Prikaz by the last Commander of #Berlin, General Helmuth Weidling, ordering Nazi forces the immediate cessation of the battle.

Pieces of History. Outstanding!

Re: Fall of Berlin - New Soviet archives

Christophe, thanks! I watched the Deutsche Welle below

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2QSXKDCFh7o

and learned that the Soviets imprisoned the German young lady dental assistant of Hitler for something like 20 years merely because she positively identified his charred jaw line and the Soviets didn't want the information revealed. Stalin, Molotov, and others repeatedly lied to the Allies for years planting stories that Hitler had escaped and was alive.

Too bad it took 75 years to release this information and it makes one wonder what else is still locked up..

Yep, Paul, agree.

Cheers.
