Quite right Aleks!
There's Hitler's Yacht Grille far left.

The other ship in the picture is the Gneisenau and was taken on 22 August 1938 during the state visit of Admiral Horthy - indeed, to honour the regent the Hungarian flag is flying from the mainmast - you might just be able to make it out!

So, what event is shown here and what (indirect) relation it has to certain country which was allied to Germany?

Best regards, Aleks

Hello!
Thanks for reviving the quiz - I myself have forgotten about it. :(
This event happened in Ukraine in 1941 - hope this will help.

Best regards, Aleks

Welcome to AHF! :)
Well, I think it's time to solve this mystery.
These are ruins of Uspenskiy Cathedral of Kievo-Pecherskaya Lavra after explosion which occurred on November 3, 1941. According to one of the versions, the cathedral was blown up by the Soviet underground who wanted to assassinate Jozef Tiso, President of Slovenská republika (he visited Lavra on that day, and left it several hours before the explosion).

The quiz is open for anyone willing!

Why was the Hungarian Fast Corps withdrawn from the Front before the end of 1941?

I don't have the answer myself, but its something I was always curious about.
