Retribution, TASS No. 0605, November 24, 1942
1928 x 870 mm
Inscribed on the sign on Hitler’s cot:
Adolf Hitler. Violently deranged.
Inscribed on the list Hitler is writing:
To be captured in 1942: Borisoglebsk, 10 July; Stalingrad, 25 July; Saratov, 10 August; Kuibyshev, 15 August; Arzamas, 10…; Baku, 25 September.
All of the plans of Hitler, the viper, have come to nought.
However he is not at fault for their failure;
Rather it was the red soldiers, the hero-giants
Whose wondrous prowess glorified Stalingrad.
For the bandit, the most desperate of villains
Our people have ever seen,
They forge harsh retribution in battle:
Not a mental hospital,
But a scaffold!
