This is for daver2, joko, alexandrus and others.
My grandfather was jewish. He was born in 1911 in a little town near Kiev-Zvenigorodka. His father was killed during the Revolution (not as participant in any meaning). When he was 13 he had to go work on a factory. (Those were the difficult years after the civil war). Often he and his friends had nothing to eat, if they were lucky, they could smoke to lessen the hunger. Later he got the chance to study and became engineer. Then he moved to Leningrad in 1938 (his work demanded it).
When the war came(22 june 1941), he was one of the first to subsribe as volunteer. But they refused him (because he was an engineer, they said he was needed more in the rear, for now. From those who left from Leningrad in the first days only 2 % survived the war).
He defended Leningrad in 1941, fought at Kursk in 1943, where he was wounded, liberated Kurland(Latvia), where one of the strongest SS forces were cut off, and fought in Ukraine in 1944, went to the far east to battle the Japanese after 9 may 1945.
He received two red stars( Орден Красной Звезды), a service-in-battle medal(За боевые заслуги) and a medal of honor( За отвагу).
After the war he got several patents on high pressure molding.
He worked very hard and could easily climb up to become factory leader, but he didnt want to hustle.
He married my grandmoter(who waited for him the hole war) and they got two children. He didnt participate in politics in any way.
He died in 1981 of bloodcancer at the age of seventy.
I dont know about Polish jews, but Soviet-Jews were not cowards, they fought just as fierce as ethnic Russians.
I think you have misunderstood me. I'm not "Anti-Semitic" I'm anti-Zionist. This kind of misperception also enforces my position. Anyone who speaks out against Zionists in the Govermnent of America, The State of Israel, sex slavery going to Israel, is labled "Anti-Semite"...I have good videos from Rabbi Yisroel Dovid Weiss, an Anti-Zionist Rabbi. I agree with his position. Again, I don't hate Jews, that is ridiculous to HATE everyone based on an ethnicity. I don't even hate all Jews living in Palestine.
