Did Valentina and Natalya survive WWII they were among the hundreds of thousands working in the defense plants building the weapons for the Red Army.
Working in a wartime factory must have been noisy hard and dirty work, how many hours a day did they work how many days a week did they work. How much were they paid for the work, they received more rations, but the work was still back breaking.
Looking at the photograph you can see little protection or safety equipment like helmets or goggles to protect their eyes.
How many workers were killed in accidents or suffered injuries.


Did you know during WWII the Communist Party
opened the Churches for the faithful for prayers for victory.
The Communist carried nothing about religion and oppressed it before WWII, but used religion and faith of the Russian people, to save their own hateful system. It still amazes me today that educated people still fall for such an evil system.


Karl Marx one of the founders of Communism
"Religion is the opiate of the masses" and one of Communism corner stones, is the complete and intense hatred of Religion they consider Mindless, Mythological Superstition

Communism believes the "State" should have the allegiance of the people Ironically it
tears down Religion, and replace and create there own Materialistic Religion.
In time Communism, National Socialism and Fascism or any other Totalitarian State will fail, because they refuse to recognize the rights and dignity of man...
