Schaeber, Gerhard: He wanted to sleep in the Kremlin. 1942

When twenty-two-year-old Hans Rechard, a young German prisoner who had 
distinguished himself in the Polish campaign, was asked to talk about 
what he had done, he remained silent at first but after a while burst 
out irritably: "I was obeying thte Fuehrer's orders to the letter- I 
was fighting anti-German moods." These words were explained by Max 
Schact, another member of Rechard's company; to fight anti-German 
moods meant to destroy Poles,. Ukranians, and Jews. In company with 
his fellow soldiers of the S.S. troops the brave Rechard had driven 
hundreds of women and children across the Visla River and bashed in 
the heads of nursing infants before the very eyes of their mothers.
