    Same time period for both?

    Definitely Russia - **** dying in Germany or running into Hitler . . . ick.

    Unless I have present-day knowledge: then count me into Germany if I'm a native so I can pick his head clean off.

    Many of the answers so far reflect the relative naivete regarding both times/places. Common (mis-)perception says Nazi Germany was worse, when in fact both were pretty much the same regarding oppression and the possibility of being whisked away and never seen by your family again, with only relatively minor differences as in which specific groups were targeted. Stalin wasn't any better than Hitler, he was just our ally (out of necessity), that's all.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    I'd be dead in both nations, so neither.

    The Nazis murdered around 12 million civilians, not 6.

    Assuming I wasn't a known targeted person, the quality of life, for non targeted persons inside of Nazi Germany, was far superior to that of your average Russian peasant.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    I would much rather live in a corrupt communist state than one that is fueled by hatred for everyone else.
