German Soldiers Looking for Low-Flying Enemy Aircraft

Image size: 1600 x 1074 pixel. 545 KB
Date: 2-3 August 1944
Place: Beauchêne and Ger, Normandy, France
Photographer: Unknown

“Low flying fighter in sight!” was the original caption to this picture when it was first published in the German press in 1944. For many years it believed to have been taken in June shortly after D-Day, while this photo is actually part of a set shot by Kriegsberichter Theobald depicting men of the 84. Infanterie-Division (probably Grenadier-Regiment 1052) moving in to relieve the 116. Panzer-Division prior to Operation ‘Lüttich’, referred to in Allied sources as the 'Mortain counterattack'. This dates the set to the 2nd or 3rd of August, not June. Given the urgency of the situation, the soldiers would most probably not be allowed to stop just to indulge a photographer, so Theobald probably took advantage of a short rest stop to snap this photo near La Haute-Louverie, a small hamlet half-way between Beauchêne and Ger. Typical of German divisions formed during 1944, the 84. Infanterie-Division was a mix of decorated veterans transferred from other units and young recruits, some quite young from what we can see here. Of the first four men from the left, all veterans, three have the Infanterie-Sturmabzeichen (Infantry Assault badge) and the left-most NCO displays also a Verwundetenabzeichen (wound badge) and what seems to be the Eisernes Kreuz II.Klasse (Iron Cross 2nd Class). Unknown to these men, the division would not survive the August retreat to the Seine River, being destroyed in the Falaise pocket.

First German POWs in North Africa

 

Image size: 1600 x 1531 pixel. 893 KB
Date: Thursday, 17 April 1941
Place: Tobruk, Libya, North Africa
Photographer: Unknown

Men of the Australian 9th Infantry Division guard Italians and some of the first German prisoners to be taken during the war in North Africa, after Rommel's first unsuccessful assault on Tobruk, 17 April 1941. If we are talking about Heer Division, it was the 5. leitche-Division during the 1st Siege of Tobruk that was on 10-14 April 1941. However, on the 2nd Siege of Tobruk from 30 April to 7 May 1941 it was a mix between the elements of the 5.leichte-Division and the newly arrived 15. Panzer-Division (except for Panzer-Regiment 8 that was not involved yet). BTW, if someone asking: Why are their heads bowed? It is actually a basic techniek of not to look your captors in their eyes, state only your name and number. Look what happened at Malmedy: at the Nuremberg Trials the SS Soldiers stated in their defense that the American POW’s looked at them tauntingly almost staring them down ... we all know how that ended for the Americans!

Germany's Heroes Remembrance Day 1940

 

Image size: 2048 x 1370 pixel. 457 KB
Date: Sunday, 10 March 1940
Place: Unter den Linden, Berlin, Germany
Photographer: Unknown

Heldengedenktag (Heroes Remembrance Day) 1940 on Unter den Linden boulevard in Berlin. Reich Chancellor Adolf Hitler, accompanied by Reich Marshal Hermann Göring, Grand Admiral Erich Raeder and Reichsführer-SS Heinrich Himmler, greets the honor battalion of the Wehrmacht marching past. March 10, 1940. In 1919, the German War Graves Commission (Volksbund Deutsche Kriegsgräberfürsorge) proposed a Volkstrauertag (people's day of mourning) for German soldiers killed in the First World War. It was first held in 1922 in the Reichstag. In 1926, Volkstrauertag became a feature on what Catholics considered Reminiscere (the second Sunday of Lent.). On 27 February 1934, the National Socialists introduced national holiday legislation to create Heldengedenktag ("Day of Commemoration of Heroes"), cementing the observance. In the process, they completely changed the character of the holiday: the emphasis shifted to hero worship rather than remembering the dead. Furthermore, five years later the Nazis abolished Buß- und Bettag as a non-working day and moved its commemoration to the following Sunday, to further the war effort. Joseph Goebbels as Propaganda Minister, issued guidelines on content and implementation, instructing that flags no longer be flown at half-mast. The last Heldengedenktag was celebrated in 1945.

Bus Trapped in the Crater at Balham Station


Image size: 1600 x 1156 pixel. 195 KB
Date: Monday, 14 October 1940
Place: London, England
Photographer: Unknown

On 14 October 1940 at 8.02pm, a 1400 kilo semi armour piercing bomb from Luftwaffe bombers penetrated 32 feet underground and exploded just above the cross passage between the two platforms at Balham Underground station, London. Above ground a No.88 London double decker bus, travelling in blackout conditions, plunged into the crater created by the bomb. The dramatic spectacle of the trapped bus was to become emblematic of the dangers of the Blitz, a series of pictures of it appeared in publications around the world. The water and gas mains, along with the sewage pipes, had been broken: water poured down, flooding the tunnels below, and gas hampered rescue efforts. Almost all of the casualties would have resulted from the blast and debris. Yet stories soon developed of trapped people drowning in the flood waters and of miraculous escapes by people swimming along the tunnels to the next station. In total sixty six people died, although over the years there has been confusion over the exact number and only recently Transport for London has agreed to revise the memorial plaque at the station. The recovery of bodies was to take almost until Christmas yet remarkably the damage was repaired and trains were running through the station on 8th January 1941, and the station itself reopened on the 19th January.

Giraud and de Gaulle Shaking Hands at Casablanca Conference


Image size: 1600 x 1308 pixel. 666 KB
Date: Sunday, 24 January 1943
Place: Casablanca, Morocco
Artist: Lieutenant H.A. Mason

On 24 January 1943, the final day of Casablanca Conference, Morocco, the journalists assembled on the lawn behind Roosevelt’s villa. Four white chairs sat empty before the scrum of reporters. Shortly after noon, the door to the villa opened, and Winston Churchill, Charles de Gaulle, and Henri Giraud walked out, while Franklin Roosevelt was carried to his chair. The whirling of film and clicking of cameras quickly replaced the murmurs of disbelief.

“When the Press reporters saw us both they could scarcely believe their eyes, or, when they were told we had been there for nearly a fortnight, their ears,” wrote Churchill.

Roosevelt and Churchill hoped to bring the competing factions of the French resistance together in Casablanca, but their attempt proved futile. There would be no headlines touting a new, unified French war effort. But photographs showing American, British, and French leaders together would galvanize Allied propaganda efforts. As Giraud, Roosevelt, and Churchill traded small talk and offered occasional smiles for the cameras, a solemn-faced de Gaulle smoked a cigarette. A photographer wanted more—something that didn’t smack of a command performance—and urged Giraud and de Gaulle to shake hands. The generals ignored the suggestion, until the president prodded them. “Why not shake hands?” said Roosevelt. “You two Frenchmen are loyal to your country, and that warrants a cordial handshake anytime.”

They stood, de Gaulle pulling the cigarette from his mouth and holding it to the side, and managed a fleeting handshake. Unable to capture the moment, the photographers called for them to do it again. The second shake was no less awkward. After Giraud and de Gaulle departed, Churchill moved over to sit by Roosevelt and talk further with the reporters and war correspondents gathered before them. Roosevelt began by reading a background statement and then spoke from some notes for about fifteen minutes.

This photo was taken on 18 November 1940, and it shows Nazi and Wehrmacht officials as guests at the Wehrmacht exhibition entitled "Der Sieg im Westen" (Victory in the West), which were held at Heldenplatz, Vienna, Ostmark (Austria). This exhibition features a series of propaganda relating to the resounding victories of German troops in the invasion of France and the Lower Countries a few months earlier.

B.V. beim Oberkommando der Wehrmacht); whose head blocked by Göring is SS-Gruppenführer Dr.jur. Ernst Kaltenbrunner (Höherer SS- und Polizeiführer Donau); between Göring and List is General der Kavallerie Eberhard von Mackensen (Chef des Generalstabes 12.
