Those guys from the past, like our grandfathers for example were tough people, unlike most of today's generation of europeans. If we could me a time analogy, those were the Waffen SS and the ones from today will be the Waffel SS ))))))
Seriously, who is this guy? I saw him in nearly every WW2 photo collection If the soldier who flew the Red flag over the Reichstag and the Americans who flew the flag on Pacific had their names recorded, why wasn't he?
Well there are debate on who actually flew the flag on Reichstag, check here: [link]
and the Americans who flew the flag on Iwo Jima were Franklin Sousley, Harlon Block, Michael Strank, John Bradley, Rene Gagnon, and Ira Hayes. Their story were depicted in "Flag of our fathers" Check here: [link]
Lustig, wie es soll zeigen, "wie well besser" (uberhaupt nicht) die Russen dann sind die Deutschen, als die russische Flagge, die sie mitgebracht, um auf dem Reichstag gelegt ist 1/3 der Größe der deutschen Flagge.
