This YANK MAGAZINE article was published six months after the German surrender and gives an account of post-war Vienna, Austria: the people, the shortages and the black-market. Originally liberated by the Red Army, the Americans occupied the city three months afterward; this is an eyewitness record as to what Vienna was like in the immediate wake of World War II.

Reading between the lines, one gets a sense that the Viennese were simply delighted to see an American occupying force swap places with the Soviet Army, although the Soviets were not nearly as brutal to this capital as they were to Berlin.

Additional articles about the daily hardships in post-war Germany can be read by clicking here.
