Yevgeny Khaldei’s photograph of a Soviet soldier raising the Red Flag, made from table cloths, over the ruins of the Reichstag in Berlin; the battle ended on this day in 1945 after the surrender of General Weidling.
One of the most recognisable images from the Second World War, there is a minute difference between the two versions shown here: 👉 swipe 👉 to spot.
An example of fake news as old news, the image was doctored to remove the looted watches on the wrists of the soldier. Caught red-handed.
