Berlin 1945 PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Berlin 1945 free pdf These rare pictures from post-war Berlin have been taken by photographers of the Soviet Army and by Germans in their employ immediately after the surrender and in the months to follow. A city reduced to rubble, and now under martial law, is imposed by the victorious Communists. And now, broken tanks and makeshift barricades are littering the streets, tenements and churches are turned into bombed-out shells, tunnels are flooded and train tracks destroyed. German soldiers have been hauled off to POW-camps in Siberia, while old men are cutting up dead horses for food, women are trading clothing for survival, and children are left to their own devices in the ruins. Published for the first time in the United States, this collection allows a glimpse into an era of destruction and desperation, but also of survival and rebuilding. The preface was written by Stephen Kinzer, the former bureau chief of The New York Times in Berlin."
