“My Grandmother Fought At Stalingrad”- says Dimitri, Could you say the same about yours?

by Milad Doroudian

I have amalgamated a few pictures of the women of the Red Army during World War 2. While your grandmother was building some bomber somewhere in Arkansas, and while she was nursing some wounded soldier. These women were fighting a war of survival against the Germans, alongside men. This, my friends, is the meaning of equality.

Do you think these women were concerned with burning their bras? Or were they concerned with the defense of their motherland, and their children? Women are just as powerful as men, and together (men and women) can move mountains.

Hand in hand with male comrades, millions perished to destroy Nazi tyranny from their homeland, while most likely your great-grandmother and grandmother was squared because she was bored in her comfortable middle class house.

  1. Great post and wonderful pictures. Americans generally have no way of even imagining the horrors of war as experienced on the Eastern Front in WWII. No one can read of the bravery shown in the defense of Stalingrad, or the resistance in Leningrad, and not be deeply moved. Thank you.
