We now turn north, upstream. After a short march we reach the Sula[10], an eastern tributary of the Dnieper. Here, surprisingly, our units had encountered extremely fierce resistance. Our attack troops had crossed the river at a very narrow point, but found that they had landed on an island.[11] Now the difficult attack across the other branch of the river had to be repeated. It succeeded but cost heavy casualties. When we reach the river, assault boats and ferries bring back our wounded, while engineers are in the process of building a bridge. It is almost finished, and then we will take over traffic control here.

Another ferry with wounded is just arriving. The first one is led by two paramedics to the ambulances standing on the shore. I recognise Private Fischer, gunner on one of my machine guns. He is badly shot through the thigh, pale and smiling wanly. I walk with him to the ambulance and say goodbye. The next wounded man is brought by the paramedics on a stretcher and pushed into the vehicle. I bend over his face. It’s a lieutenant who was still a first sergeant in Jasło. He has a dangerous shot in the throat. He can hardly speak. When I want to ask him something, he points to his throat and waves it off, exhausted. He died in the military hospital.

My old comrade Sergeant Lehmann was also killed today. In the morning he had said to his comrades: "Today I’m going to do a thing!" During the attack, he would always run ahead of his comrades until his men lost sight of him in the confusing terrain. That’s how he had always done it in Jasło, too. I can still see him running like a weasel far ahead of his platoon during the cross-country exercises, so that the guns had trouble following him. That’s how he had done it again today. He was a daredevil. He fell in the faith of Germany. I liked him.

We march through a village where everyone is in a great commotion. An infantry company marching through here shortly before us had been shot at from a small barn. A German had been killed. The barn was immediately surrounded and after a short firefight set on fire. Two Red Army soldiers who had been hiding here and shooting at the passing column were burnt to death.

The cases of insidious, underhanded, inhuman fighting methods of the Soviets, which are contrary to international law, are becoming more and more frequent. In three points the Russians are undoubtedly superior to us: In camouflage, deception and guile. A greater closeness to nature and uneducated instinct give them a sure eye for the construction of concealed positions, which they conceal with camouflage of the same colour and shape as the surrounding material. In doing so, they often resort to means that we would not even think of, given the reverence and humanity inherent in our Western understanding of culture. For example, they set up forward observation posts in cemeteries by hollowing out graves and building the scissors telescope into the gravestone. Or they mine the houses during their retreats, so that our soldiers are blown up when they open the doors or light the ovens. He accepts the death of his Russian compatriots for that. The heedless waste of human life has always been typical of the Russian way of fighting in all their wars. And the cruel murder of captured Germans fits perfectly into the picture of his mentality. No, the Red Army fought unfairly, inhumanely and criminally. I have certainly seen examples of a decent attitude among Russian officers and soldiers, but unfortunately these remain exceptions in the myriad of brutalities. The Russian mentality, which is undoubtedly influenced by Asia, is fundamentally different from our Western way of thinking and moral conception. There are worlds that separate us. When Genghis Khan’s “Golden Horde[12] occupied large parts of European Russia in the 13th century, the connection with the West was severed. While in our country chivalry flourished and its virtues were cultivated, in Russia culture decayed under the cruel despotism of the Mongol rule. Russian history knows no chivalry, and therefore chivalry is alien to the Russian. He can be very good-natured, but he is not chivalrous and magnanimous. This is proved by his behaviour towards the defeated enemy. He humiliates and destroys him. The Mongol rule lasted almost 300 years, and during this time some Asian elements certainly entered the Russian being. Traces of the oppressors of the time are also still evident in the language (e. g. in a particularly disgusting curse (Ljub twoju match)[13], which one hears frequently.)[14]
