Hindenburg and Hitler, TASS No. 1178, February 28, 1945
1415 x 1255 mm
In January 1933, Hindenburg gave Hitler “full power.”
In January 1945 Hitler hurriedly shipped the remains of Hindenburg out of Eastern Prussia.
The general said to the bandit:
“Get down to work, bitte!
You’re all fresh, and I am tired.
I’m beaten, and you’re not yet beaten.”
But awesome 1945
Beat even this old thug.
And the beaten one carries the another beaten one
To the rubbish heap, to a common grave.
