Fragment of the Silesian Passion. Collection of documents on the rapes, murders, robberies and pillaging by Soviet soldiers in Germany during World War II Martyrdom and heroism of East German women deals with the horrors suffered by the German civilian population (mainly women, children, nuns) at the hands of the Soviet and Polish hordes, who occupied this territory at the end of World War II. No atrocity was spared them: murder, rape, mutilation, torture, robbery, plunder, wanton destruction, deportation to Siberia (which meant almost certain death) and finally expulsion from the land they had inhabited for hundreds of years in such atrocious conditions that of the thirteen million expelled, a low estimate puts the number of deaths at three million. And it was not only Red Army soldiers who perpetrated such crimes. Many times they were outnumbered by the Poles who, defeated by the German Army, saw the opportunity to obtain a "victory" over unarmed civilians and to rob them of everything they had.
