Portrait of an unknown German Grenadier in defensive positions at the river Oder, Germany, 1945. This middle aged German has the courage to smile; not so the youngster right behind him. Note the high quality clothing, quite an achievement at this stage in the war, and the two "potato masher" hand grenades stuck in the belt of the smiling man.
A rare moment of humanity in a war of extermination: Doctors of 5.Waffen SS Division Viking attend to a seriously wounded Russian POW. Note the large open wound on the Russian's left thigh. One of the doctors is taking the Russian's pulse. Hopefully, he was operated on. Undated, undisclosed location.
