Entschuldigen bitte!

The photo is dated June 1941, so it probably was taken in Poland, preparatory to the German invasion of the Soviet Union that changed the course of the Second World War and turned it into the bloodiest conflict in the history of man. The German soldier's chances of ever seeing home again are not terribly good. But then, the peasant woman likewise doesn't have much certainty of surviving the war, and she didn't do anything to start it.  Blue skies! -- Dan Ford
