Fake → Nazis at work - hanged woman (U.S.S.R.; 1943) (Set 1)
This is the most pathetic image we have ever seen. It is estimated that more than 4,000 women of various ages were hanged by Nazi forces between 1939 and 1945. Many more were shot or guillotined and many were tortured before minimal or non-existent trials. They could be sentenced to death by People's Courts and executed within prisons, by the commandants of concentration camps or by military commanders in the field and summarily executed, usually in public. Some of these "field" executions were documented and photographed. A lot of the photographs were private snaps taken by individual soldiers and discovered after they had been captured or killed. Hanging was the preferred method for the execution for partisans as it produced more of a public spectacle than shooting and was used to terrorise the local populace as well as entertain the troops.
Defence Minister of the Russian Federation Sergei Ivanov said the Soviet Union had lost 26,600,000 people, including 8,668,000 servicemen during World War II. During the war, 15,205,592 people were wounded, 3,047,675 people were fallen ill and 90,881 people were frostbitten. The minister said a total of 5,597,000 people went missing during the war. A total of 4,559,000 people fell prisoners. "This is the Soviet Union's price that was sacrificed on the Altar of Victory," Ivanov stressed.
