Jochen Hellbeck emphasized that by focusing too heavily on the two dictators, equivalence is created between the two regimes and two populations.
But the German side led a war of aggression. For the Russians, World War I became a war of liberation against fascism. The Stalingrad transcripts show that Soviet soldiers viewed the fight against Hitler's Wehrmacht as a war of liberation against fascism. But are the interviews regarding the motivations of soldiers really reliable? After all, opponents of the Stalin regime feared for their lives. Torsten Diedrich is certain that the book written by his colleague Hellbeck adds to our understanding of the battle. However, he warned against an all too uncritical examination of eye-witnesses as historical sources.
Aside from that, the majority of interviews were recorded at the time of the Red Army's biggest triumph to date. There was room to talk about earlier weaknesses," Hellbeck countered. One thing is certain: Until now, such a large number and such authentic eye-witness accounts have never been accessible to an audience outside of the Soviet Union. Instead the records are the testaments of people who willingly fought and sacrificed themselves because they wanted to liberate their homeland from the aggressors.
Does the history of Stalingrad need to be re-written? Historians agree on the significance of the battle: Stalingrad marked a moral turning point in the Second World War.
For the Red Army, the victory was an outright triumph that brought new hope. In Germany, the myth of the unbeatable Wehrmacht was destroyed. Among the German soldiers trapped amid the horrors of war, the sense of disillusionment spread: They were the first to realize that they had served an inhumane dictator, to whom their lives meant nothing. But that's the most significant insight which the transcripts deliver: Stalin was not only a German tragedy, but Russian too. Auschwitz is synonymous with the mass murder of Jews, Roma and Sinti, and other groups persecuted by the Nazis.
January 27 marks the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz by Soviet troops.
January 27 marks Holocaust Remembrance Day, an international day of commemoration for the victims of the Nazi genocide that resulted in the death of six million people.
