|American soldiers during the Second World War: An Army Of Rapists?|
Recent German studies say that during and after the end of Second World War, American soldiers raped about 2,00,000 German women. The youngest victim was a 7 years old girl. The oldest was a 69 years old woman.
|American soldiers were almost as bad as the Russian soldiers when it came to exploiting German women during and after WW2|
Andreas Vayngand a priest from the village of Hag-on-amperes recorded that on June 25 "very drunk Americans committed three rapes: one married woman, a spinster and innocent girl 16.5 years."
By order of the military command the residents had to hang on their doors lists of residents and their age - said in a memorandum dated 1 August 1945 according to the priest Alois Moozburga Shimla. What brought this order, it is easy to guess: 17 girls and women were raped several times. " We also know that the youngest victim of the Americans was only 7 years, and the most elderly - 69.
The numerous ravages committed by American soldiers busts the long held myth that there was no need of coercion as German women were readily enticed by a bar of chocolate.
In conclusion, in the unending discussions on the Second World War, there is little mention of the plight of the German women at the end of WW2. 70 years later there is no recognition of the crime, no apologies made, either by the Russians or the Americans.
And research on this subject is being done only in Germany. Why are there no books by American and British historians, academics and writers? One can count only one book, Mary Louise Roberts book "What Soldiers Do: Sex And The American GI In World War 2 France". Nothing else. There is of course Robert Lilly's "Taken by Force: Rape and American GIs in Europe in World War II". But it has racist undertones and it says mainly the black Americans were the bad guys. There are passing mentions in many treatises but not a single book on the mass rape of German women during WW2.
