Inscriptions

Entering the war, the members of Hitler’s bloc counted on a rapid victory. They divided the spoils in advance: who would get the pies and the doughnuts, and who gets the bumps and bruises. Understandably, the bruises and the bumps were intended for their enemies, and the pies and doughnuts for themselves. (From the address of Comrade Stalin on November 6, 1943) Inscribed on the doughnuts in the picture are labeled: The Caucasus; Africa; Transylvania; the Kuban’; Moscow But now it is clear that Germany and her lackeys will not get the pies and doughnuts; instead, they will have to divide the bumps and the bruises among themselves. (From the address of Comrade Stalin on November 6, 1943)
