Just wondered how much is known about The White Rose of Stalingrad i.e Liyla Litvak the female fighter ace. I'm really interested too in her mechanic Sgt Pastportnikova who it seems spent years searching for her body and plane which he found (maybe!) in 1979. Anyone know what drove him in this search? What was his motivation?
What do people think about whether or not it was her body that was exhumed and these storesis of her having been seen interviewed on Swiss TV in the 1980's?
I'd be most interested to hear any info anyone might have on these two as it's quite an interesting topic to say the least!!
As an aside I Used to log in as signalnorth but no longer can for some reason hence my new title newsignalnorth in case you think I'm just visting here as a one off in order to glean info!
