Mass Rape as Entertainment Post War?

Introduction

Hello Explicit Facter!

Welcome to explicitfacts.com! A place, where ignited minds come to get inspired!

If you have not subscribed to our website, then you are missing out.

We all have read about wars in length. But have you ever tried to find out, what happened after those wars got over? No!

So, Team Explicit Facts has attempted to explore the unchartered waters of the post-war scenario.

Let’s dive into the topic, without wasting any more time.

Psychology behind Post War Rapes

Wartime sexual violence is rape or other forms of sexual violence committed by soldiers or combatants during armed conflict, war, or military occupation often as spoils of war; but sometimes, particularly in ethnic conflict, the phenomenon has broader sociological motives.

Wartime sexual violence may also include gang rape and rape with objects.

It is distinguished from sexual harassment, sexual assaults, and rape committed amongst troops in military service.

During the war and armed conflict, rape is frequently used as a means of psychological warfare in order to humiliate the enemy.

When a soldier rapes a lady in the captured zone, then it breaks the morale of the captured army and Government as a whole.

Would you be able to retain your Nationalist attitude, when you see a soldier dragging the ladies of your house into a room, for rape? Most probably your answer will be “No”!

It’s impossible to silently watch your own wife, sister, or daughter getting dragged into a room by an enemy soldier of winning army.

Wartime sexual violence may occur in a variety of situations, including institutionalized sexual slavery, wartime sexual violence associated with specific battles or massacres, and individual or isolated acts of sexual violence.

Rape can also be recognised as genocide or ethnic cleansing, when committed with the intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a targeted group.

However, rape remains widespread in conflict zones.

There are other international legal instruments to prosecute perpetrators, but this has occurred as late as the 1990s.

However, these legal instruments have so far only been used for international conflicts, thus putting the burden of proof in citing the international nature of conflict in order for the prosecution to proceed.

Post War Life

During the war, soldiers are worried about killing their enemies one by one, till all of them are dead.

When they are declared the winner, then the war strategy changes.

Now there is no enemy. Now what?

Since the soldiers are away from their families, hundred or thousands of miles away from their home and family.

By then they never had the opportunity even to masturbate, forget about having sex.

So, now when war is won then what happens next?

The government of invaded land is non-existent.

The army is wiped out dead or captured as prisoners of wars.

Now the winning army’s soldiers have females of all ages, who are mothers, wives, sisters, or daughters of the dead or captured soldiers, ready for entertainment for much deprived sexual pleasures.

World War II: Germans Raped by Russia’s Red Army

After World War II ended, rape of almost biblical proportions happened inside conquered Germany.

Everyone witnessed the mass rape of German women by Red Army soldiers.

It was much feared of in anticipation and, in the event, their worst fears were realised.

“Frau, Komm!” ‘They raped every German female from eight to 80’

“Estimates of rape victims from the city’s two main hospitals ranged from 95,000 to 130,000.

One doctor deduced that out of approximately 100,000 women raped in the city, some 10,000 died as a result, mostly from suicide.

The death rate was thought to have been much higher among the 1.4 million estimated victims in East Prussia, Pomerania, and Silesia.

Altogether at least two million German women are thought to have been raped, and a substantial minority, if not a majority, appear to have suffered multiple rapes.”

“Red Army soldiers don’t believe in ‘individual liaisons‘ with German women,” wrote the playwright Zakhar Agranenko in his diary when serving as an officer of marine infantry in East Prussia.

“Nine, ten, twelve men at a time – they rape them on a collective basis.”

Only Germans?

‘The novelist Vasily Grossman, a war correspondent attached to the invading Red Army, soon discovered that rape victims were not just Germans. Polish women also suffered.

So did young Russian, Belorussian and Ukrainian women who had been sent back to Germany by the Wehrmacht for slave labour.

“Liberated Soviet girls quite often complain that our soldiers rape them,” he noted.’

“One girl said to me in tears: ‘He was an old man, older than my father’.”

Red Army soldiers raped their allies too, as for example after the liberation of Belgrade in 1944.

In the words of Stalin!!!!

When the Yugoslav government representative in Moscow, Marshal Tito’s deputy Milovan Djilas, complained to Stalin about it, Stalin told him that “people should understand it if a soldier, who has crossed thousands of kilometers through blood and fire and death, has fun with a woman or takes some trifle”.

In his book Conversations with Stalin, Djilas later wrote, “According to complaints filed by citizens, there were 121 cases of rape, of which 111 involved rape with murder, and 1,204 cases of looting with assault—figures that are hardly insignificant if it is borne in mind that the Red Army crossed only the north-eastern corner of Yugoslavia. These figures show why the Yugoslav leaders had to consider these incidents as a political problem, all the more serious because it had become an issue in the domestic struggle. The Communists also regarded this problem as a moral one. Could this be the ideal and long-awaited Red Army?”

War Crime Propaganda

Ilya Ehrenburg, a Soviet author and war journalist, was blamed by many for what took place.

In 1942, in a Red Star newspaper article headed “Kill”, he had written:

“The Germans are not human beings…”

“…there is nothing more amusing to us than German corpses.”

As for the German women, they evoke in us only one feeling: disgust. We despise the German women for what they are—mothers, wives, and sisters of the executioners. We despise the German women for what they wrote to their sons, husbands, and brothers, ‘Send your honey a pretty fur coat.’ We despise the German women for what they are: thieves and prostitutes.

The above passage was included in his book Vojna (The war), Moscow, 1942–43.

Still, having opened the proverbial Pandora’s Box, Ehrenburg appears to have had some second thoughts.

In 1945, after the war crimes and mass rapes in East Prussia became known back in Moscow, Ehrenburg made a trip to the front.

On return, he spoke at the Frunze Military Academy and criticised Red Army officers for poor political and moral preparation of soldiers and for the lack of stringent measures against rapists and looters.

Either way, Ehrenburg soon fell into official disgrace and was criticised by Georgy Alexandrov in Pravda on 14 April 1945 (“Comrade Ehrenburg oversimplifies”).

He responded in a letter to Stalin on the next day, that he never meant wiping out the German people as a whole, but only German aggressors.

Army of Dead Souls

The Soviet armies advancing into East Prussia in January 1945, in huge, long columns, were an extraordinary mixture of modern and medieval: tank troops in padded black helmets, Cossack cavalrymen on shaggy mounts with loot strapped to the saddle, lend-lease Studebakers and Dodges towing light field guns, and then the second echelon in horse-drawn carts.

The variety of characters among the soldiers was almost as great as that of their military equipment.

There were freebooters, who drank and raped quite shamelessly, and there were idealistic, austere communists and members of the intelligentsia appalled by such behaviour.

Beria and Stalin, back in Moscow, knew perfectly well what was going on from a number of detailed reports.

One stated that “many Germans declare that all German women in East Prussia who stayed behind, were raped by Red Army soldiers”.

Numerous examples of gang rape were given – “girls under 18 and old women included”.

Marshal Rokossovsky issued order No. 006 in an attempt to direct “the feelings of hatred at fighting the enemy on the battlefield.” It appears to have had little effect.

There were also a few arbitrary attempts to exert authority.

The commander of one rifle division is said to have “personally shot a lieutenant who was lining up a group of his men before a German woman spreadeagled on the ground”.

But either officers had involved themselves, or the lack of discipline made it too dangerous to restore order over drunken soldiers armed with submachine guns.

Drink of every variety, including dangerous chemicals seized from laboratories and workshops, was a major factor in the violence.

Ground Realities

It seems as if Soviet soldiers needed alcoholic courage to attack a woman. But then, all too often, they drank too much and, unable to complete the act, used the bottle instead with appalling effect.

A number of victims were mutilated obscenely.

The subject of the Red Army’s mass rapes in Germany has been so repressed in Russia that even today veterans refuse to acknowledge what really happened.

The handful prepared to speak openly, however, are totally unrepentant.

“They all lifted their skirts for us and lay on the bed,” said the leader of one tank company.

He even went on to boast that “two million of our children were born” in Germany.

The capacity of Soviet officers to convince themselves that most of the victims were either happy with their fate, or at least accepted that it was their turn to suffer after what the Wehrmacht had done in Russia, is striking.

“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.”

One can only scratch at the surface of the psychological contradictions.

When gang-raped women in Königsberg begged their attackers afterward to put them out of their misery, the Red Army men appear to have felt insulted. “Russian soldiers do not shoot women,” they replied. “Only German soldiers do that.”

The Red Army had managed to convince itself that because it had assumed the moral mission to liberate Europe from fascism, it could behave entirely as it liked, both personally and politically.

Domination and humiliation permeated most soldiers’ treatment of women in East Prussia.

The victims not only bore the brunt of revenge for Wehrmacht crimes, but they also represented an atavistic target as old as war itself.

What Pushed Red Army Soldiers to Rape German Women

Rape is the act of a conqueror, the feminist historian Susan Brownmiller observed, aimed at the “bodies of the defeated enemy’s women” to emphasise his victory.

By the time the Red Army reached Berlin three months later, its soldiers tended to regard German women more as a casual right of conquest.

The sense of domination certainly continued, but this was perhaps partly an indirect product of the humiliations which they themselves had suffered at the hands of their commanders and the Soviet authorities as a whole.

Sexual freedom had been a subject for lively debate within Communist party circles during the 1920s, but during the following decade, Stalin ensured that Soviet society depicted itself as virtually asexual.

This had nothing to do with genuine puritanism: it was because love and sex did not fit in with dogma designed to “deindividualise” the individual.

Human urges and emotions had to be suppressed.

Freud’s work was banned, divorce and adultery were matters for strong party disapproval.

Criminal sanctions against homosexuality were reintroduced.

The new doctrine extended even to the complete suppression of sex education.

In graphic art, the clothed outline of a woman’s breasts was regarded as dangerously erotic. They had to be disguised under boiler suits.

The regime clearly wanted any form of desire to be converted into love for the party and above all for Comrade Stalin.

Most ill-educated Red Army soldiers suffered from sexual ignorance and utterly unenlightened attitudes towards women.

So the Soviet state’s attempts to suppress the libido of its people created what one Russian writer described as a sort of “barracks eroticism” which was far more primitive and violent than “the most sordid foreign pornography”.

All this was combined with the de-humanising influence of modern propaganda and the atavistic, warring impulses of men marked by fear and suffering.
