THE WAY TO BERLIN
(From the picture):
"March 1945. Along with the 5th Division of the Russian Army, my Polish Army unit crossed the Oder River into Germany. We passed the site of an earlier battle. The Russians had hung Nazi officers on every tree along the road. They looked as though they were still alive. Many other dead Nazis lay scattered along across the field, at the edge of which a young pretty Russian soldier stood, pointing the way to Berlin."
