What publications (USA & Europe) published or reprinted the famous Yevegny Khaldei photo of a Soviet Red Army soldier raising a flag above the Reichstag in Berlin in 1945? I know it was originally published in the Russian magazine Ogonyok, I'm looking for all subsequent publications. Thank you!

Dear Mr. Davis,

Anyone who cares enough can find issues of major Western newspapers such as the London or New York Times, or local ones (including the one in your home town) by gaining access to their "morgue" of back issues, kept by virtually every newspaper still in business, often directly accessible by microfilm and very likely transferred to electronic storage. Since you are interested in all such newspapers, I can only recommend that you start with the most internationally recognized for the time and work your way down.
