Awesome pictures guys.

Does anyone know who the people are in the 'david and goliath' picture? THe guy on the right doens't look like a child to me and he is not a midget. The guy on the left must be a total freak of nature! He doesn't look very 'Aryan' either - more Eastern European? ANy guesses?

Geoff, this looks like a Northern Norway or Finland (Lapland). I have occasionally seen similar kind of photos, probably taken in the same place. That was typical German military humour during the war. Another example being text "Stalactite cave" on the door of the Luftwaffe field toilet. German pilots used Finnish words to grumble when it was officially forbidden in German:"Paska keikka" [Shitty job]!!

A little explanation about the text in this photo. It does mean landscape, which is really beautiful in the north. I means that after that point is "nothing", just vast wilderness (which Germans disliked) all around and a few thousand kilometres to home. We have a similar kind of sayings in Finland even today: "(something) is from the arse" or "(something) is right from there" which means something is really bad or sucks.

Even though somewhat crude, the best translation of the sign is, "The ass-hole of the world starts here."

In the American army we had a similar saying. "If you want to give the world an enema you would stick the nozzle into (insert name of whichever place you happened to be at the time)."

Totenkopf... CHECK!

Black Uniform...CHECK!
Childishly innocent smile, baby face, white bench complete w/ heart shaped cutout, and toddler's toy carriage...WHAT?!?!?! That's not supposed to be there.

It's like Shirley Temple took the day off and Hans was the only one the movie studio could find to replace her on such short notice.

SS uniform: $350
Jackboots: $75
Totenkopf: $15

Look on Hitlers Face when he finds out that Himmler had an American bank account: Priceless.

I can here the firearms instructor screaming out "Don't point that gun at anything you don't intend to shoot."

Ah memories......

Regarding the 'Hier beginnt der Arsch der Welt!' pic...I have a similar one in front of me which reads: 'Himmel-Arsch-u.Wolkenbruch-Brücke' which literally means Heaven-Ass-and cloud-break bridge which also kind of means the ends of the earth. The sign also says that the Pi.Btl.48 built the bridge and that it's around Cholm.

(Scanner is still out cold so I can't post it right now)
