comment What was the ratio of German to Soviet losses on eastern front during different stages of the war?
As for older times, obviously, people so loved that power that it couldn't stand without camps and KGB. Are you one of Putin's bloggers?

People did not like Gorbi when he started with love to Stalin and forbade vodka, or when he revealed himself as weak against old communists, but between these times there were hundreds thousands demonstrations, on which people ask him to move further. You obviously speak about things that are absolutely unknown for you. And refuse to use any logic. Interesting, why?

Oh, yes, so I could feel free to rebel, no gases now? Only the whole family to different camps for a word against the state? How humanic! And about the grain not taken by army, explain it to millions of dead because of the hunger organized (admitted by Molotov) in Ukraine and Cossack regions in 30-ties.

So what? People were crying in N.Korea now, too. Eating bark from the trees because of hunger and crying for a good chief, because the next one could be worse. The second reason was: they were expected to cry. So they had to. When 4 years later Staliv was taken from the Mausoleum and criticized, only Georgians protested. The love was too short, eh?

Not supported, but tolerated and feared of. Because millions deaths on the Citizen War were enough. And there was no good alternative. (The czar's empire was not a most sympathetic state, too.) And the people rebellions were simply slaughter off by battle gases, as in Tambov region. And when the Germans came, people (naively, of course) thought that the change to the better finally may come.

comment What were the post World War 2 effects on Germany?
+1 Very good and thorough answer. But with "... with connections to the Nazi party were considered pariahs" you are looking on the subject too idealistically. In the eastern part former GESTAPO members were taken into STASI and NKVD as specialists. Mass of them worked as guards in the camps in Siberia. In the western part as all judges, for example, were nazi, they couldn't destroy all the court system. So, these judges worked nicely further, except a few of the most notorious ones. The same in other important spheres. The real denazification came in 70-ies, with the Willi Brandt. And time.

@Anixx The grandfather spoke on this theme very reluctantly. It is very hard for a strong man to acknowledge that he lived all his life under a power he did not respected even a little bit and did nothing against it. And try to explain "the objective and personal reasons" of your "cowardice" to a young lad. Maybe that is the reason you have heard what you have heard.

comment What was the ratio of German to Soviet losses on eastern front during different stages of the war?
@Anixx Yes, it was a village from Uljanovsk region. Old enough Russian territory. And my grandfather personally fought honestly, because these starting months he was in these regiments that stood against Japan and was moved to the western front only in the autumn, when it was known, that nazi don't cancel the kolchozes and are even more cruel than communists.

comment What was the ratio of German to Soviet losses on eastern front during different stages of the war?
@RobertLee. Yes. In 1987 in Lvov I have spoken with one old man, who was "taken" at the start of the war in the western Ukraine, as all men with high (not higher!) education. All of them were shot in the cells. He escaped because he fall and lied under the dead bodies - for three days. NKVD heroes didn't have time to check their work. He wept as a child when he told about this - 46 years after the thing happened! Normally Ukrainians didn't spoke with Russians o such themes, but I participated in Chernobyl liquidation and they took me as one of themselves after it.

@Anixx right about Vlasov personally. As about absolute majority, it was from village. And hated the soviet power for "collective farms". They expected Hitler to cancel "kolchozes". He refused... And had the same people reaction as Napoleon with slavery in 1812. About people fighting against communism, read Shambarov. Very interesting.

No, by info from my grandfather and other Russian veterans I knew. As for Goebbels, you apparently haven't thought enough - who wold admit that he killed people who wanted to fight on their side? That would totally destroy they theory of inferior Slavs and the very theoretical base of the war. And your mai source was apparently Zhukov? Who changed the version 7 times?Really, honest author.
