Photos of Germans in Russian Poland 1914-18

Post by sylvieK4 » 06 May 2003 13:23

Does anyone have any photos they can post of German soldiers in Russian Poland during the First World War? Invasion forces on the move, encampments, in Polish cities or towns, as occupiers and/or in battle?

Also, any photos of the Battle of Tannenberg in progress and/or its immediate aftermath?

Thanks. :)

The postcard below is clearly propaganda, but it is interesting too. Does anyone have anything like that, as well?

well i think some people here could use a translation of that

the title says Freibad Tannenberg--> bad means like bath but freibad xyzis often what places are called in german

then it says:

Gehen sie baden gehen sie denn das ist schoen
go bath go bath as that is nice

Denn Russen muessen auch baden gehen
because russians must also bath

it sounds better in gemran but it doesnt sounds very good in german either!
