Great pictures!

I believe first one shows Tito with Slovenian cultural workers, the beard guy looks awfully familiar.

The photo with Slovenian partisan officers shows the commanders of the 9th Corps. From left to right Lt.Col. Danilo Šorović, ?? (probably allied officer), Maj. Dušan Švara, Janez Hribar (Political Commisar 9th Corps), Gen.Maj. Lado Ambrožič (Commander 9th Corps) and I think Major Peter Stante (Deputy Commander 9th Corps).

The first clear,though small photographs of Tito's war-time wife Herta Haas (on whose release from Ustasha prison Tito insisted during the "March negotiations") and his war-time lover and secretary Davorjanka Paunovic Zdenka I've been able to find so far:

http://www.globus.com.hr/Clanak.aspx?BrojID=142&ClanakID=3588&Stranica=1#

Interesting is that Mrs. Haas is still alive and living in Belgrade. Still more interesting is that one of the (IMHO) greatest Croatian directors, Lordan Zafranovic, is making a hours-long documentary on Tito.

Cheers,

Gaius

P.S. When I try to download the photos, extension shown is ".aspx". What can I do in order to get the photos? Thanks

I honestly think they're fakes...
Not because I don't think that Partisans committed war crimes against Germans, but if you look at the positions of dead bodies in the last two photos- composition is clearly drastically changed. Even if Partisans were checking them up to see if they're dead, still there is too much difference between the positions of dead bodies in these two photographs.
