Yasnaya Polyana / Was Tolstoy's home desecrated, pillaged by Germans?

Postby Ulrich Clarence » 1 week 5 days ago (Thu Sep 10, 2020 8:51 am)

Wondering if there exists any detailed rebuttal to the Soviet narrative about the Germans desecrating and pillaging the onetime home of Leo Tolstoy in which War and Peace and Anna Karenina were written, as alleged in the 1942 Soviet propaganda film Moscow Strikes Back and mentioned by Jackson at the IMT?

So where is proof of the claim?
Anyone can 'allege' anything'.
Remember it was 'proven' at Nuremberg that the German steamed Jews to death in homicidal "steam chambers." :lol:
It was 'proven' at Nuremberg that the Germans gassed people at Dachau, even though today that absurdity is rejected even by the mainstream.
Etc., etc.
B.
Revisionists are just the messengers, the impossibility of the "Holocaust" narrative is the message.

I quickly searched for information on this and I have found numerous sources claiming that the house was converted into a hospital by the German military during their month and a half occupation of it. The Soviets knew that the Germans were approaching Moscow and if there was something very valuable in that house they would have had time to evacuate it. If something easily transportable but valuable was left in the house I am sure that it would have been taken, and why not? Germany was also pillaged by the Soviets and Western Allies even after their surrender. Looting and pillaging have been a common occurrence in warfare for a very long time. The Soviets did not sign the Geneva Convention and did not abide by its rules at all. If the house was in fact pillaged it could very well have been from civilians as well; the most obvious scapegoat would be the defeated Germans. Europeans that had nothing to do with WWII have been forced to pay immense sums of money in the form of "Holocaust reparations."

Suggested:

Theft of intellectual property and patents by the allies; Third Reich technological advancement

Thanks Lamprecht. The official narrative does indeed appear to rely on oral accounts from local peasants. It's also noteworthy that the Germans had an obligation under the Hague Convention to protect art treasures by removing them from the scene of hostilities.
