The Russian foreign Ministry was embarrassing photo of a German soldier during the Second world war

The Ministry of foreign Affairs of Russia to embarrass with a photo of a German soldier during the Second world war.

It is reported by a jellyfish.

A day of remembrance for victims of Stalinism and Nazism, which is celebrated in Europe on August 23, in the account of the Ministry in Twitter there was a picture that was to show that Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union cannot be put in one row.

The report said: “Nazi Germany started world war II killed 27 million Soviet citizens. The USSR ended the war and saved the world from the brown plague”.

This message was accompanied by a photo with German soldiers and women in the Soviet form.

German soldiers were signed as follows: “a Nazi. Started the Holocaust.” The photo with the woman was the inscription: “the Communist. Ended the Holocaust.” Assigned from the bottom: “this difference.”

The soldier in the photo is Werner Goldberg, Wehrmacht soldier. However, he was never a member of the Nazi party. Moreover, he was discharged from military service in 1940 due to the fact that his father was a Jew. During world war II Goldberg saved his father from being sent to Auschwitz.

Portrait of Werner Goldberg in the beginning of the war visited on the pages of the Berliner Tageblatt with the caption “the Ideal German soldier”. Then his image was used in Nazi propaganda.

I wonder what the Russians don’t fall for the first time in an awkward situation with this photo. In 2015 in Tobolsk, a monument with the photo, signing it: “Defenders of the Fatherland at all times”. Later on the image on the monument was replaced.
