How #German women suffered largest mass rape in history by #Soviets – Al Arabiya

Staff writer, Al Arabiya English // IN PICTURES: How German women suffered largest mass rape in history by Soviets – Al Arabiya English – “Our fellows were so sex-starved,” a Soviet major told a British journalist at the time, “that they often raped old women of sixty, seventy or even eighty – much to these grandmothers’ surprise, if not downright delight.”

In his book, Zapotoczny said that even female Russian soldiers did not disapprove of the rapes, some finding it amusing.

In 1948, rape cases decreased vastly after Soviet troops were ordered back to their camps in Russia and left residential areas in Germany.
