Zoya,
Your story still make me so sad that I cry. I hope you have found happiness in the afterlife my dear. I will always remember you brave girl.

I know a Russian woman who was given the name Zoya, 17 years after Zoya’s death. How could the Germans not see, that martyrs always resulte from stupid
persecution? Did they think Soviet people could be trained, like dogs?

Citala som pribeh zoji kosmodemianskej. Je to krasny pribeh ruskej partizanky ktora zomrela krutou smrťou, pribeh napisala jej mama.

I read the story Zoya kosmodemianskej. It’s a beautiful story of Russian Partizanka who died a cruel death, a story she wrote her mother.

I am reading Beevor’s “Berlin” at the moment, and last night one of the last things I read before going to bed was how many Red Army troops carried a newspaper photo of Zoya as they rolled through Germany towards Berlin. I hadn’t heard anything about her (not even realising it was a “her”) and was curious to discover more. Then this morning I do my daily WW2today.com check, and sure enough the “last year in the war” section is all about Zoya! Thank you again for your excellent site!

This was not a pointless war. Germany at that time was a nation of killers and they had to be stopped at all costs. These were a group of people that made today’s Taliban look like pacifists.

remarkable and sad… a terrible pointless war…

She was tall, brunette, and dark-eyed. However, even if you were blonde [Aryan] and Communist, you would’ve been persecuted. I was once as brunette as this lovely lady, but I am now blonde. My eyes are still dark. I still serve the Soviet Union!
