When I think Russian women: women with headscarves all the time.

Belarusian citizens are made to gather and witness the execution of suspected partisans in Minsk. Olga Fyodorovna Sherbatsevich, a nurse at the 3rd Minsk Children’s Polyclinic, was publicly hanged with two other suspected partisans in front of the National Academy of Science of Belarus; each bore a placard stating, “We are partisans and have shot at German troops” in both German and Russian. Sherbatsevich was accused of aiding wounded Soviet soldiers, officers and partisans, although there are no German records of her ever firing at German soldiers. The boy in the foreground looking at the camera is thought to be her 14-year-old nephew Vyacheslav Kovalevich, who happened to be passing through the area on the way to the cinema. That same day, Sherbatsevich’s 17-year-old son Volodya was hanged, along with a 16-year-old girl who is thought to be named Maria “Masha” Bruskina, and World War I veteran Kiril Trus, for their involvement in partisan activities. Minsk, Belarus, Soviet Union. 26 October 1941.
