These aren't "germans on retreat", but rather the 44. Infanterie Division Reichsgrenadiere "Hoch und Deutschmeister", which my grandfathers brother served in.

This is not the Reichstag, as the Reichstag was burned down before, and not restored while Hitler was in power.

It's the Kroll Oper.

Hitler ain't inspecting troops here (as the comment says), but rather a parade of SA men, recognized by their caps.

I'm 100% sure that this is not 1944, but July 1941 - Wehrmacht pushing hard towards Moscow.

True - but should be described as "German soldiers in Tractors Factory, Stalingrad".

I never said it was 44, I said it's the 44.Infanterie division.

And as I have relatives who served in it, I'm definatly sure about that.

Btw they never pushed for Moscow, but bypassed it way south.

The division was totaly annihilated in Stalingrad (most of them went to prison)
but later refounded.

Hi Stauffenberg,

Coincidence and misunderstanding mate.
You're absolutely right that this is 44 Division. I wouldn't know. I just had seen this picture somewhere and remembered that it was 1941.
44 indicated 1944 obviously time of retreat.
I used expression "pushed for Moscow" just in lateral sense - "pushed East".
I think that to avoid similar misunderstandings we should avoid abbreviations like 44 - lets write 44-th or 44-th ID. And for year always full 1944, 1943 etc.

Off topic

BTW - do you have any figures how big percentage od 44th Division soldiers returned home from soviet captivity?
And could they go to West Germany, even if their birthplaces were in Eastern part? You know what I mean?
I was born in OberSchlesien where a lot of fellows just disappeared, many of my school mates had no grandfathers or (the lucky ones), had grandfathers in West Germany.
In primary school I had very good friend, his name was Ewald Felke. He had grandfather which survived soviet camps, was repatriated to West Germany and tried to bring his family from Poland. It took him many years, finally in 1966 communists agreed and Felke's were able to go.


Cheers mate,

Well I wrote 44. ;)

Not all soldiers of the division went to Russia, some where released right away...

I have a detailed book written by members of the div, however they don't have any numbers themself.

I don't think that top picture is Russia, the track gauge doesn't look like 5ft6"(Russian standard) it looks more like standard gauge 4ft8.5".

[21Pz]Stauffenberg

Yea, I suppose those are tracks in Finnland, just the area is overun by the Soviets and now the Finnish sabotage the tracks.
I'm not really sure though.

SS Tiger

Finland uses a broader gauge aswell, looking at the speed limit sign, I think its not Austria or Germany, maybe Poland? By the way, I got the Russian track gauge wrong, its a shade under 5ft, not 5ft6" as I said. I could be wrong, and the gauge in the picture could be the Russian but it just looks a litte bit narrow.

SS Tiger
07-04-2006, 08:42 PM
I've done some research and it could well be Estonia, Latvia or Lithuania as the Germans relayed the wide track gauge to the standard German gauge of 4ft8.5". If this is the case, the picture most likely will have been taken in late 1944 or 1945, this is when the resistance against the rail network increased.

1 Foto: Here you are mistaken. It`s russian soldiers arranging "rail war" behind german frontline. May be it`s well equiped partisans. But it seems more like to me that it`s regular army sabotage group.
Soldeirs ware standard red army winter comouflage, armed with standard PPSH-41 submachine gun.

Other fotos you are likely to be right.

Sure, using fantasy, it may be Viet Kong. They also used PPSH.
Most likely these men are soviet soldiers, not due only to PPSH.

First, I'd like to say you have nice vision. I can't identify it so accurately.
Second, here is russian scout knifehttp://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/5/55/Knife_nr40_ussr.jpg
You can presisely say that is not it? It differs very little from the knifes from you picture.
Third, in Russia from old times hunters use finish knives called "finka". During the war lots of soldiers used "finka".
And a little more info from russian knife site: "Blades most of the world combat knifes are similar like twins"

The Collar Insignia of both are different, because Ley wears the new version and Bormann the old version.

Many thanks to "AnDie" and "Panzerass" from http://forum.panzer-archiv.de who helped me identifying the two persons.

And here, honorable ladies and gentlemen, we have another example of not only incorrectly identified, but also unquestionably reduced factual photography.

This is the snapshot that is included in our existing photo-depository:


http://www.ww2incolor.com/gallery/albums/germans/aci.jpg


But that one in fact is only a fragment of the much more bulky, and truly fascinating original color caption regarding triumphal progress of the German armored units incorporated into the XIV Panzer Corps, under the command of General der Infanterie (Lieutenant General) Gustav von Wietersheim, composed of the 5th and 11th Panzer, the 294th Infantry, and the 4th Mountain Divisions.


http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a137/Langnasen/Eleventhday-AdvancingGermanArmoredU.jpg

Factual label of this photography is the following one:

"Eleventh day" – Advancing German armored units - Niš, Serbia, April 17. 1941. (photo taken by PK Artur Grimm) – Signal, U. Nr. 11/41
