    The cross " FUR RAUB UND MORD " is disputable as it is for certain not known, whether was issued such in Leningrad in time WWII. Only I can tell, that supporters and at the given cross suffice opponents.

    IMHO: I think, as is not confirmed documentary from archives of the Ministry of Defence and other sources, is fiction.

    More than 15 years back I've seen it by myself, and it's not a fake.

    This cross is a disputable artefact (it unproved by any serious documentary source), so to speak about falseness of the given cross incorrectly.

    Hi Joel,
    Firstly I want to tell you that this example is real from the war time. Because the pictures made from one example from russian archive. I have somewhere the picture of original file to that cross from archive. I will look to that in nearest future in my pictures archive.
