Dread Topiary of Ras Thavas

'O friend and companion of night, thou who rejoicest in the baying of dogs and spilt blood, who wanderest in the midst of shades among the tombs, who longest for blood and bringest terror to mortals, Gorgo, Mormo, thousand-faced moon, look favourably on our sacrifices!'

Yaakov Vilkovich is a 91 year old Jewish Soviet veteran of World War Two.
An estimated 500,000 Jewish men fought in various positions in the Red Army. 70,000 are said to be living in Israel.
Many escaped from Poland and various places under Nazi jurisdiction to join the Red Army between 1939 and 1945. Many escaping from Jewish ghettos and other areas to fight the Nazis.
These soldiers took part in some of the most decisive battles of modern history. From Stalingrad to Berlin and the liberation of Hitlers death camps, these soldiers stood along many others of various backgrounds and religions.
Stalins Jewish Fighters remain largely forgotten by mainstream history lessons and very few monuments exist to commemorate their contribution to ending the evils of fascism and Hitler’s evil.
Today these former soldiers live relatively quiet lives in both average homes and poverty. Their contributions largely forgotten, but largely amazing.
Mr. Vilkovich joined the Red Army in 1941 and fought in Berlin in 1945. The photo was taken in his home on April 11, 2013
