After bloody fighting in the streets of Berlin, the Soviets captured the city. The Raichstag 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 Raichstag 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)
