Your webmaster was barely nineteen years old, but a seasoned veteran, as he had already slogged his way from the hedgerows of Normandy to the outskirt of Paris. In this photo he is sixth from the front and sixth from the left. Point your mouse to him for an enlarged image.

    This is one of the most widely circulated photos of Nazi war crimes. A German army officer delivers finishing shots to executed hostages in Pancevo, Yugoslavia. Contrary to postwar claims, the regular German army was as deeply involved in the death of civilians as the SS and other murderer formations.

    This victim of Nazi inhumanity still rests in the position in which he died, attempting to rise and escape his horrible death. He was one of 150 prisoners savagely burned to death by Nazi SS troops. Gardelegen, Germany.
