Interesting little detail on the first photo. The germans behind the 3 front figures also seem to be “arm” saluting except the slovak officer giving a traditional salute.
Any idea who they are saluting?

Germans officer giving a traditional salute to VII 44. All another Germans (diplomats or NSDAP-funks or another orgs) use new salute since 1933.
