Re: Statements[edit]

Updated DYK query On 30 March, 2007, Did you know? was updated with a fact from the article Rudolf Christoph Freiherr von Gersdorff, which you created or substantially expanded. If you know of another interesting fact from a recently created article, then please suggest it on the "Did you know?" talk page.

Re: Pic Rudolf Christoph Freiherr von Gersdorff[edit]

Dear Howcheng, For further verification of copyrights, weather existing or not, I wrote the following letter to the Memorial to the German Resistance [1]:

Sehr geehrte Damen und Herren, in der englischen Version der Internet- Enzyklopädie „Wikipedia“ habe ich mir erlaubt, einen Beitrag über Rudolf Christoph von Gersdorff zu schreiben. Dabei habe ich in Unkenntnis der Rechtslage die auf Ihrer Website verwendete Photographie desselbigen verwendet. Ich bin nun von so genannten Administratoren dieser Enzyklopädie darauf hingewiesen worden, dass es unbedingt erforderlich ist, einen zweifelsfreien Beleg dafür zu liefern, dass die Photographie rechtlich einwandfrei dort platziert werden darf. Ich denke, dass Sie mir prinzipiell zustimmen, dass von Gersdorff dort seinen Niederschlag finden sollte und dass zum Abrunden eine bildliche Darstellung nicht fehlen sollte. Da Sie diese Photographie in Ihrem Internet-Auftritt nutzen, können Sie mir sicherlich Auskunft darüber erteilen, wie ich mich richtig zu verhalten habe. Um eine derartige Auskunft möchte ich Sie hiermit freundlichst bitten. Hochachtungsvoll und mit freundlichen Grüßen signed Montréal, Qc, Canada 1-Apr-07

As soon as I receive any reply I shall inform you. Best regards --Dionysos 09:02, 1 April 2007 (UTC)

As per our Manual of Style, "Avoid putting links in the boldfaced titles and synonyms." That is why I added the footnote reference. Cheers, Olessi 23:52, 3 April 2007 (UTC)


Re:Red Army atrocities (WWII)[edit]

Thank you for your king words, and welcome to the project! First, Red Army atrocities (WWII), while encyclopedic topic, will (if it hasn't so far) prove to be highly controversial. You will find that there are active users who both deny or try to overemphasize such issues; don't let them convince you Wikipedia is an unfriendly place - just bear in mind extreme topics evoke extreme responses. I strongly suggest merging your article into existing Red Army atrocities; at the talk of that page I posted several links to Red Army crimes for 1919-1921, 1939-1941 and 1944-1989 periods. See also similar articles, ex. War crimes of the Wehrmacht and Category:Soviet World War II crimes for structure.-- Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus | talk  19:56, 3 April 2007 (UTC)

Let’s do it after this article has been finished! --Dionysos 20:08, 3 April 2007 (UTC)
I agree that, in all fairness, it would be best to let Dionysosfinish his first (and maybe even second) draft before ripping things apart. Since Dionysos has said he is not a native English writer, the first thing I would do would be to read the translation for inference from his native language; one that pass has been taken care of, then check for POV expressions and adjust for neutrality (which I think means avoiding one-side and judgmental language, not avoiding calling a spade a spade).

Dear Piotrus, Please, stop making any changes to any article without prior discussion. The same goes for adding or removing templates. Whenever a template states: Template:Under work, you can not just remove the template and afterwards claim: There were “ugly empty sections”. If you can not contribute to the article with facts, just leave it to those who can. --Dionysos 17:42, 5 April 2007 (UTC)

2 sources[edit]

I have got 2 .pdf files which I thin could be helpful for Soviet War Crimes.

The first one is original Soviet Order complaining about the behaviour of the soviet troops. It's in russia but there's a german translation. If you want to, I can translate into english. It says e.g.: "weapons were used against women and old people. Furthermore there were many killings of german POWs"

The second file consist of many tapped soviet radio messages. it's in german The Messages are like: A: "I made 35 POWs. They are shot"

                      B: "Did you shot all of em?"

The second file is an original document of the Wehrmacht. It consist of many tapped soviet radio messages. It's in german, but again i could translate. The Messages are like:

A: "I made 35 POWs. They are shot"
B: "Did you shot all of em?"
A: "I'm still on it. 13 are alive."
B: "Don't shoot anybody. Bring them all to me."


I'd like to send it to you via email. I think, the photographs can be used for the article. Cheers--Prisoner 911 09:53, 18 July 2007 (UTC)
