One of the German soldier:
Take a look at this filthy animal. Peter Kahn. Recipient of an Iron Cross. Born to respected Prussian stock. Field Marshal Paulus invited me to lunch once. He called me a hero. A hero. It's impossible to wage war against you people.You know nothing of honor. You're all bandits, who'd shoot someone in the back. You're not fighting for victory, you want revenge. ... I came here as a soldier. You've turned me into a beast.
A Russian civilian, a girl:
What are you looking at? You want to know how we lived under the Germans? What they did to us? Why I'm still alive? And not with Mama and Papa in a grave? Why I didn't kill myself? Go on, ask. Don't be shy. Go ahead and ask. Our defenders. You want details? I just couldn't do it. I was scared. I was waiting for you. Shoot ... Go on, then.
One of the Soviet soldier:
By age 14, Nikiforov had been picked up 10 times by the police. But fate was to send him
to work in a tractor factory where there was a House of Culture that was famous throughout Stalingrad. By age 16, he had an amazingly pure tenor voice. The factory sent him to Moscow
to the conservatory. A year before the war, he returned to Stalingrad as a soloist with the Philharmonic and became a local celebrity. ... On the first day of the war, he signed up as a volunteer For 20 days, he was lost in the human slaughterhouse of the Belarusian forests until he found his unit. The Soviet military police questioned him for 20 days more. Those terrible first months of the war made him stern, silent, and even cruel.
Trapped earthquake victim Nina: My father is dead. I miss him so much.
A rescuer: Hey, Nina. Nina, don't cry. You'll use up all the oxygen. I had five fathers, and I miss them all. They're all dead. But I'm not crying.
Nina: Five fathers? That's not possible.
Rescuer: Possible, impossible. How would you know? ... It is possible.
It was in Stalingrad. Autumn, 1942. The Russians were crossing the Volga to gain a foothold on the other bank and keep the Germans from taking the city and the river access. This was all but impossible. But they didn't think about that. Each one fought his best, not knowing that he was fighting in the bloodiest battle in human history.
