This is always so weird to me. You know they’re going to kill you, why would you voluntarily dig?
“Axis Hungarian soldiers force Russian civilians in the small village of Polnikovo to dig their own graves before being summarily executed as other villagers are forced to watch the proceedings. Days previously, two Hungarian soldiers were killed in the forest near the village. The Hungarian Army then carried out reprisal killings of all male civilians in the village who had been in or near the forest on the day the Hungarian soldiers were killed. Polnikovo, Ukolovskogo District, Voronezh Oblast (now, Krasnensky District, Belgorod Oblast), Russia, Soviet Union. July 1942.”
History porn isn’t what I would call this.
