The Conquest of Berlin - 1945 by EduardoLeon The Conquest of Berlin - 1945 by EduardoLeon
After bloody fighting in the streets of Berlin, the Soviets captured the city. The Reichstag fell on May 2, 1945.

  Loaded with symbolism, the scene in question refers to a photograph taken on top of the Reichstag, by Yevgeny Khaldei. The photographer edited the image by removing the clocks of soldiers, objects looted during the invasion. (I kept the watches on drawing, as in the original image).
 
The photograph of Khaldei became one of the most important images of the war, and I could not but represent it here.

I used pencil 6B, 4B and HB. (Canson A3)

Após sangrentos combates pelas ruas de Berlim, os soviéticos capturam a cidade. O Reichstag cai em 2 de maio de 1945.

Carregada de simbolismo, a cena em questão é referente a uma fotografia tirada em cima do Reichstag, por Yevgeny Khaldei. O fotógrafo editou a imagem, retirando das mãos dos soldados relógios saqueados durante a invasão. (no desenho eu mantive os relógios, como na imagem original).

A fotografia de Khaldei chegou a ser uma das mais importantes imagens da guerra, e eu não poderia deixar de representá-la aqui.

Utilizei lápis 6B, 4B e HB. (Canson A3)

Excelente trabalho,mostrando um momento marcante da história mundial.  :clap:  Infelizmente,os saques acabaram sendo um pecado menor durante a conquista de Berlim:li que houve estupros em massa,incluindo de freiras,mulheres grávidas e até garotinhas! :omg:  Muitas dessas vítimas foram encontradas depois com o crânio esmagado a coronhadas... :disbelief:
