I found this work inside the German Russian Museum in Berlin; it is modeled after the Soviet War Memorial in Treptower Park. I don't know where this stained glass window was originally installed, but I find it interesting how each side has their own view on the events after WWII ended. Most accounts agree that the Soviets were quite brutal to the Germans who remained in Berlin when they "freed" the city at the end of the war. I guess it's up to us now as to which side we want to believe.
Here is the description from the museum:
Stained Glass Picture showing the Treptow Hero (1977-78)
Artisit Jurij Nesterenko
This picture from the Soviet Surrender Museum symbolizes friendship between East Germany and the Soviet Union. The statue at the Soviet Memorial in Treptow is said to be based on an actual occurrence and features the rescue of a German child by a Soviet soldier during the Battle of Berlin to illustrate the liberation of the German people from Naziism.
