1941 - The Attack: Operation Barbarossa

Rights-Managed, Editorial

Location and time:

Soviet Union, 22-06-1941

Description:

Operation Barbarossa was the German codename for Nazi Germanys invasion of the Soviet Union during World War II, which commenced on June 22, 1941. It was to be the turning point for the fortunes of Hitlers Third Reich in that the failure of Operation Barbarossa arguably resulted in the eventual overall defeat of Nazi Germany. The Eastern Front which was opened by Operation Barbarossa would become the biggest theatre of war in World War II, with some of the largest and most brutal battles, terrible loss of life, and miserable conditions for Russians and Germans alike.

Sound Bite and conversation:



Goertz, Gerhard

(soldier in the Barbarossa operation) , speaking German:
-  "„ They were totally surprised.....................totally...“"

Goertz, Gerhard

(soldier in the Barbarossa operation) , speaking German:
-  "„ Those few bunkers which kept on fighting were fighting really very bravely. Often they came to shoot even in pyjamas...“"

Leonhard, Wolfgang

(university student in Moscow) , speaking German:
-  "Stalin was thinking logically as Hitler was already at war with England and France. The intentions of the United States were also clear, so he had to use all his force against the West. After this he thought it impossible that Hitler would attack the Soviet Union. What’s more, Soviets had fulfilled all points of the Hitler-Stalin agreement."

Boeselager, Philipp von

(officer in Barbarossa, 1941) , speaking German:
-  "One could see that the Russians had been preparing for attack, but they were not prepared for defense when we arrived. WE were a few days faster than they were. "

Zahn, Peter von

(cryptographer at Wolfsschanze) , speaking German:
-  "For years I had been convinced that we were on the way to a war with Russia. Some were reading „Mein Kampf“-making it clear for anybody."

Zilm, Franz-Rudolf

(officer when the operation Barbarossa was) , speaking German:
-  "I was there at Bialistok-Minszk myself. My troop’s task on the south side was to cut the rescue path of the Russians. German fighter planes attacked marching columns with machine guns or cannons on board. They wreaked terrible destruction."

Hannusch, Willi

(soldier in the operation Barbarossa, 1941) , speaking German:
-  "I saw it myself that those officers were stopped and simply shot on the street."

Schmückle, Gerd

(officer when the operation Barbarossa was) , speaking German:
-  "My general said upon departure: „We won’t commit crimes“. And with this, we understood the order."

Lofy, Reinhold

(soldier in the operation Barbarossa, 1941) , speaking German:
-  "Everything depended on the attitude of the leader of the troop. If he was a man of honor and responsibility, and did not accept anything like that, he was supported by the whole troop. On the other hand, if he was a Nazi, there were always some soldiers who supported this as well. So everything depended on the commanders."

Hein, Willi

(soldier in the operation Barbarossa, 1941) , speaking German:
-  "They pulled the Jews out of their houses and forced them to dig their own graves."

Hein, Willi

(soldier in the operation Barbarossa, 1941) , speaking German:
-  "Then they were shot."

Michlina, Galina A.

(Belarussian Jewish woman) , speaking Russian:
-  "My family obeyed the orders. They killed them one by one – some of them on the next day. "

Michlina, Galina A.

(Belarussian Jewish woman) , speaking Russian:
-  "They covered the holes. Some of them were still alive – sometimes for days"

Matthes, Adam

(soldier in the operation Barbarossa, 1941) , speaking German:
-  "The war was awful because they destroyed everything which crossed their path. They did not respect anything. It was very hard to get over this."
