| Hi all, the intent of this thread is to make a collective index of databases/sites that contain images related to Romania during WW2 ( Aviation/Army/Civil ) i will share those that i visit from time to time, most of them are very known, you are most welcomed to add others !
WW2 in Color http://www.ww2incolor.com/Romanian+Forces/
Muz. de Fotografie http://www.muzeuldefotografie.ro/tag/ww2/
CriticalPast - i will post 2 generic searches which will yeld some results, you will have to search by yourself for extra stuff :
Footnote http://www.footnote.com/image/#47654545 Once the page loads select Open Filmstrip from below and you will be able to browse through quite a few USAF over Romania photos and others, very good quality !
Pallas This one is very difficult to navigate, for you searches you will have to use english/dutch/french to find, try keywords like : roemenie, roemeense, sample link : http://pallas.cegesoma.be/pls/opac/opac.search?lan=N&seop=6&sele=1&sepa=1&doty=_CA&sest=guerre+mondiale+(1939-1945)--campagnes+et+batailles--front+oriental--participation+roumaine&chna=&senu=8443&rqdb=1&dbnu=1

| By the way, what rifle is that?
According to the original article from Life Magazine, it is a (unspecified) French rifle.
Sorry for being off-topic.

| Can't help with that one

Thank you, Dragos!
Were those still in use by 1939/1940?
|Posted by: dragos February 22, 2011 11:22 pm|
| Yes, it was used by auxiliary troops under the designation 8mm Lebel Model 1917 rifle, along with other older models such as:
6.5mm Mannlicher Model 1893
7.92mm Mouscheton Model 1890
7.62mm Mosin Nagant Model 1891
8mm Mannlicher Model 1895
All armies made use of any equipment available for auxiliary and rear troops since the first rate equipment was not always in sufficient quantity to supply all the troops.

| Many of these photos are well known. Some of them are copied from publications.
And it's mentioned: "Agentia SOIM PRESS Copyright MMX SOIM".
Copyright on which ground?
|Posted by: dragos March 23, 2011 08:45 pm|
| A lot were taken from this site and forum. It looks like the author grabbed everything he could find on the Internet.
The problem is that a lot of people in Romania don't fully understand yet the meaning of copyright or author rights. During communism this term had no meaning, so probably it would take a while for this thing to be treated serious.
At least if the source was mentioned ...
|Posted by: Dénes March 24, 2011 06:21 am|
Author? What author?
|Posted by: Victor March 24, 2011 07:21 am|
|I have seen from my personal collection there, as well as photos from different auctions on eBay.|
|Posted by: Cantacuzino March 24, 2011 08:17 am|
Maybe he must change the name in " Agentia Soim copy paste ". I also found many pictures posted by me on this forum long time ago.

I just noticed that he also sells them..this is just plain inexcusable...
|Posted by: Dénes March 24, 2011 11:33 am|
What? I haven't noticed this, but now I see that this guy (Mihai Mitrea?) indeed sells the stolen photos. Incredible and inexcusable.

Not only in Romania... And, in general, instead of "people ..... don't fully understand yet the meaning of copyright or author rights", I would mention "People don't want to understand the meaning of copyright or author rights", because it is so profitable for them.
China signed the international patent agreements only in 2001, and that after combined pressure from the United States and the European Union. This means that before 2001, they could copy/steal any industrial technology they could get.
Back in the days of the Cold War, only the industrial patent agreements got some respect from the socialist countries. The art/photo/movie copyright was a very elusive matter in any socialist country, beyond the grasp of any agency from the capitalist countries.
I would add that during communism the Socialist Romania was in line with the international patent agreements, and when the communist government wanted, they financed the patent applications for Romanian inventions in other countries.
However, they invented a "catch"/"loop hole". Back in those days, in the Romanian industry/economy two concepts were played :
1. Invention - something new internationally
2. Innovation - something new nationally. That meant that you could steal an idea from elsewhere and suddenly you where the hero of an "innovation"!
In early 1990 that "innovation" concept got the well deserved place in the history's trash bin.

| The most interesting from criticalpast.com is a few seconds of film with two pilots who are still alive:
General de flotilă aeriană DAN STOIAN (second from left)
and General de escadră av. IOAN DOBRAN

|Posted by: C-2 June 17, 2011 09:26 am|
Dan Stoian,Serbanescu,Dobran and Toma Lucian are in the film!!!
|Posted by: Alexei2102 June 17, 2011 10:12 am|
| Nice, thanks for sharing.
|Posted by: muggs June 17, 2011 10:27 am|
|Glad you like it guys, there is another one on the same site showing some romanian-german exercises but the aircraft in it is indistinguishable so i didn't buy that one too.|
|Posted by: Radub June 18, 2011 09:29 am|
| The footage contains various clippings from a number of films taken by SMP and have been seen before in a number of other propaganda films.
Also visible is Dobran in the cockpit of his "Yellow 22" (from 00:00:46:17 to 00:00:50:00 ). Dobran's "22" is visible so fleetingly that it seems to be a "2", but longer sections of that film are known to exist elsewhere and I had the chance to see them. A still-frame of Serbanescu shaking hands while leaning out of the cockpit of "White 1" as it appears in that film has been published a while ago in at least two books.
Nevertheless, it is still quite interesting.
|Posted by: Dénes June 18, 2011 11:22 am|
Yes, this footage inspired me to instruct the artist how to paint the cover the 'Rumanian Fighter Aces' book by Osprey.
|Posted by: muggs June 21, 2011 08:44 am|
| I went ahead and bought the other clip too
Footage http://www.footage.net/Default.aspx is a search engine that looks in the major collections like Pathe,CriticalPast etc, many things to be found mostly from the interwar period
I also found some interesting clips from the italian Luce archive:

| soldiers from "21 division" that probably passed thru my grandparents village.
in my grand mother village 12-14 russian soldiers raped a 76 y.o. woman, a friend of my grand mother. she died 2 days after.
my grandmother sister(18 yo) was close to a rape...saved by a russian officer that was passing nearby and heard screamings. please bear in mind that the 2 russian "heroes" were draging her out of the house and wanted to rape her in court, all the familly watching. after this event she put on her clothes horse shit and ash on her face.

|Is the same asphalt! Russians developed on purpose the T-34 tank, as they knew that in one day they'll have to march them on romanian roads. If the 88 mm AT guns couldnt stop russian tanks, even nowaday romanian roads could do it.|

C'mon, this is quite "Radio Erevan" (after broadcasting Suvorov, that is...): it wasn't the T-34, but the BT series:
And the roads that might have been used were way westwards from Romania; look at a map and see that the road to Berlin doesn't cross our country (well, except maybe if you come from Istanbul... )
