Abstract
The article examines the image of Russia and Russian people in memoirs of German soldiers, who had invaded Russia with the army of Napoleon in 1812 and were captured during the campaign. The author explores their views on Russian nature and climate, on Russian soldiers and civilians and on their common everyday live. In their memoirs the Germans didn’t use stereotypes, as many French authors did, but described both positive and negative sides of Russian reality, that they observed, by mentioning everything, that attracted their attention for some reasons or others.
