A young SS soldier, likely of the 12th SS Panzer Divison “Hitlerjugend”, a unit that took 43% of the casualties in the Normandy landings. Most were members of the Hitler Youth, earning it the nickname “Baby Division” by the Allies. Many were so young that rather than standard tobacco/ alcohol ration, they were given chocolate and sweets. In just under a year, the 20,540 members of the division had been whittled down to just 10,000, all of whom surrendered at Enns on May 8, 1945.
