Conquered Europe or Wehrmacht - foreign tourists

Post by raut » 05 Jun 2021 10:26

All, good day and great mood! Dear like-minded people, I have decided to create a topic and I hope it will be of considerable interest. I invite everyone to take part in the study, identification of images of occupied Europe. I love riddles and the process of solving them.

So: A German soldier (and we know they were still those "tourists") took a photo and did not write on it, thereby creating a certain mystery for us collectors and researchers, where the photo was taken, in what place, in what period ?? ?, you see, it's interesting to learn a little more about photography ?, so to speak, to look beyond its scope, besides, it also broadens the horizons. That is exactly what our task is, otherwise the photo remains faceless and not very interesting.

Let's all together try to solve these riddles, and for one we will travel virtually by the countries of conquered Europe.

Question about the first picture; Here is a fragment of some kind of , monument, who knows what it is and where?

raut,

the german designation "Schlachtfeldtourismus" was very common after 1918, between the two wars, it was very common to
visit the former battlefields, to lay down some flowers for every fallen soldier.

"Der unbekannte Soldat" was always honored, even nowadays...

Looks like monument to fallen in WWI.

images of occupied Europe
I would say it's in Germany, not in occupied Europe.

Image Waleed I'm just in awe.Obviously there are no mysteries for you.Here's a little complexity.
It is obvious that this arch is the entrance to some kind of bridge.
there is an inscription on the back of the photo
where in what locality is this arch?

Assuming that the person who took the photo did not make an error labelling it, should be one of these (allowing for spelling mistakes - 12 or so places to check): https://www.deutsche-staedte.de/staedte.php?city=K

Yes, you are probably right.However, we have other landmarks for finding a bridge on the river.I'm sure not many bridges were designed this way.
In addition, for sure there is a person for whom the image in the photo is his native place.
For example, I recognize my hometown from any photo.

I am not sure it's a bridge.
Looks like an impressive gate to the estate, Schloss of some kind.

And yet it is a bridge. Study the picture carefully.
