No dialogue… just images… as you watch it, realise that we have some amongst us who still defend Nazi excesses on the grounds of anti-communism… fancy that…

______________________________

On 29 November 1941, the Fascist occupiers led a young partisan to the scaffold and hanged her. Zoya Kosmodemyanskaya became a symbol of all those put to death by the Nazis. Her courage and self-sacrifice is self-evident and undeniable. Of course, the right vilifies her memory, but the truth of the matter has always won out (the records of the time refuted Western claims that the Reds made up her story). The MP is considering her sanctity (it hasn’t rejected the claim, despite rightwing propaganda to the contrary). What would the woollier ROCOR elements do if they do glorify her? I’d pay big bucks to see the looks on the faces of the Lukianovtsy and the Potapov circle. Would they stay with us or would they spin-off into irrelevance (after all, that’s what the Nazi collaborators and their families did in South America in ’07 after the reconciliation)? Perspirin’ minds wanna know…

This is the 90th anniversary of Zoya Anatolyevna’s birth…
