Stunning Colorized Photos Of Legendary Soviet Female Snipers From WWII, Including One Dubbed ‘Lady Death’ Who Killed 309 Nazis

Stunning colorized images have given new life to WWII female snipers who protected their territory against German attacks, including the most successful female sniper in history, Lyudmila Pavlichenko also known as ‘Lady Death’.

Roza Shanina was one of the 800,000 women who fought in Russia.

The photographs were colorized by Moscow artist Olga Shirnina.

“There are very few [color or colorized] images with Red Army soldiers, I decided to fill this gap,” She said. “Sometimes a picture can say more than many words and I’ll be glad if people learn more about Russia and its people through my colorings.”

Olga Shirnina became popular thanks to her Flickr page, where she posts colorized versions of historical photographs. She mostly posts photographs from the Russian Empire and the Soviet Union, as well as pictures of Hollywood celebrities from the previous century.
