Amateur photo of Russian soldiers in the Czech republic, May 1945.


May 9, sixty-fourth anniversary of the victory in The Great Patriotic War.


Thank you for destroying the armies of Nazism.

Panzer Tiger II
Abandoned at the Znojmo railway station, Czech Republic, 1945.
The Czech Republic saw some of the last fighting on European soil in WWII, being squeezed in between retreating German armies of both the Eastern and Western fronts.
