I am looking for a Russian army photograph that i believe was taken after they captured Stalingrad back from the germans. It shows a russian soldier raising or holding a russian flag in some ruins. The russian army edited this photograph before mass printing in the newspapers by removing ONE of the TWO watches the soldier was wearing. I may need a copy of this for a paper i am writing. Thanks, Shrike [flag]

Not sure if it is in this site but several collections of photos, some rare ones from German side. [url]www.stalingrad-info.com[/url]

Is this the one? It's Berlin, not Stalingrad. [img]http://www.to2.com/desar/pagflex.nsf/a4c41cd2d17ebbad8625688c0025e0b9/f0fc6c0ed99c387686256a810053d8c8/$FILE/Soviet%20Flag%20Berlin%2045.jpg[/img]

That's it, Renamed! The one with the Soviet officer pushing the enlisted puke up there for the photo-op. I'm sure one of those watches was set to local time and the other to Moscow time! [:P] DaMan
