Adolf Landsman recalls the reaction of his Russian comrade to the enemy's antisemitic leaflets.

"In Belorussia, the Germans threw leaflets at us [and we had been ordered to destroy them unread] … And so, another gun commander says: 'Lieutenant, let's go into the forest, let's take a walk, I want to tell you something'. We went into the forest. He takes a German leaflet out of his boot: 'Look what the Germans are writing here.' I say: 'I won't read it, why didn't you tear it up?! And now you're giving it to me? Both of us will end up in the penal battalion for this.' He says: 'I will tear it up now, but I want you to read it first. No one will know about it, because we are alone here.' I began to read. On the whole, the leaflet ran as follows: 'Russian soldiers, you are fighting for the Jews who sit in Tashkent [Central Asia]. There are no Jews at the frontline, so why shed your blood protecting them? Surrender, come over to our side.' When I had finished the flyer, he tore it up and buried it in the ground. And then he said: 'Well, how can I trust this leaflet, when you and I eat from the same cookpot?! For whom is it intended?'"https://iremember.ru/memoirs/artilleristi/landsman-adolf-isaakovich/
