    WW II German Soldier

    This photo was taken by a German soldier. My dad captured a group of Germans in WWII and confiscated this guys camera, this is one of many interesting photos he had develped.
    Tough looking guy and some good looking gear and bike.............you have to admit a good setup, no matter the situation.

    Great photos

    Just a thought. I wonder if the numbers on the soldier's bike could be traced? There is a story there somewhere.

    Regarding photo

    I had several guys that have written books on WWII look at the roll of film and are very certain this is around the post 1939 invasion to the East, some photos showed Kiev and other Ukraine cities and parts of Hungary. You can see in the background the diffrent types of uniforms, not German. I tried to get the German Embassy to take a look at this roll of film, it has many German graves burying fellow soldiers, they showed no interest in the photos at all..........somewhere the German families would like to see these lost graves and photos, the graves actually have readable names etc........typical government BS.

    I'm not surprised the government bureaucrats are not interested. That would be extra work. It is a powerful view of our collective past. Those were terrible times that called on ordinary people to do extraordinary things. Their stories deserve to be told. Too bad most people are so caught up in today they ignore history. Thanks for posting it.

    The middle of no where, a great place to be. Beats the heck out of crossing the country on Interstate 70.
