…destroyed, but not that much. But the rest of Berlin is exclusively destroyed. Germans wanted to destroy Moscow and London, what they got is Berlin turned into a pile of stones. I saw houses-residences of Hitler, Goebbels, also destroyed and burned down. Germans hang white flags, white ribbons on their arms and repeat one and the same: “Ales kaput” (that is, “An end to everything”). Now they also understood what war is and what it’s for. The columns of German prisoners of war one-one and a half kilometers long can often be seen on the roads, convoyed by 5-6 of our soldiers. Germans without weapons still continue to come out of the forests, put white ribbons on their arms and go to surrender. The civilians now meet us without the fear they had in the first days when we entered Germany, but still distrustfully. Prisoners of war and civilians brought here from other countries and now liberated by the Red Army, on the other hand, treat us with great joy.
