This book chapter in the edited volume Die Rote Armee in Österreich: Sowjetische Besatzung 1945-1955. Beiträge (Austria: Soviet Occupation 1945-1955.

This everyday life included living in a distroyed city, no food and fuel, a black market,  looting, petty crime, several small and large conflicts with the occupiers, experience of rape and violence, but after the horros of war also a lust  for life.
