"Die US-Amerikaner als Befreier von der Nazidiktatur zu feiern, ist selbstverständlich auch aus der Sicht der Ostdeutschen korrekt und logisch. Gleiches gilt jedoch auch für die Rote Armee der Sowjetunion. Regional betrachtet sogar noch um ein Vieles mehr, denn die überwiegenden Teile Ostdeutschlands wurden durch Soldaten der Roten Armee befreit. Sie sind also gleichermaßen als Befreier Deutschlands zu feiern. Wie man dies in der amerikanisch besetzten Zone also den USA nachsagen kann, gilt dies im selben Maße für die Sowjetunion in der sowjetisch besetzten Zone."

Conveniently forgeting Soviet "special camps" like this:

Interesting! thanks for the link.

Two of the inmates were German-Americans - the entrepreneur Charles Noble and his son John. They had survived the firebombing of Dresden, but the communist East Germans and the Soviets falsely accused Charles of having "guided" the bombers from his balcony.

The son, John Noble, then spent over a decade in the Soviet Gulag system and later wrote a best-selling book:"I Was A Slave in Russia"
