How come, C-2, you usually make much better photos of the rear side than the front side of pictures? :roll:

Photos taken by the germans on the Roumanian fronts.
There are some pictures you don't see too often, the true "reality" of war... :(

Not a real photo, yet quite interesting as it presents war from another point of view: letter of a Romanian woman to her son, POW in a German camp (actually it is mentioned in the letter that her other son was also a POW at that date).

Very nice photo of a group of Rumanian generals, at unknown date (from eBay). Plenty of decorations...

Gen. Dénes

At least 3 of the officers of this picture from Romanian Generals are french... First the General in the center with only one arm and 2 officers in the second and last row. Note the collars are different and alsio the kepi. The one in the second row wears a black armband typical of french officers late in the war.

During the occupation of Romania in WWI, the German propaganda issued a series of weird postcards, featuring funerals and even brothels...as if to demonstrate the uncivilised nature of the people they conquered ...who would have thought to send such postcards to his lover or family back in Germany!?!?
Notice the vexed german soldiers...

The printed writing on the card says:

A Literal translation:

Rumanian Funeral. II.

"Before the coffin is placed in the grave and buried, the body lies on white linen, with wine and oil annointed / provided for the journey into the next world. Also into the deceased hand is placed some small money. We have observed that in the clothing of the deceased there is no knots to prevent keeping his spirit earthbound and prevent his passing onwards."

These postcards were sent by soldiers a a "tourist" style card showing the different traditions of the lands they were in. As Brothels were (as even today in Austria, Germany & France etc..etc..) legal, there would be no reason
QUOTE
" to demonstrate the un-civilised nature of the people they conquered"
.
There are many picture cards on the net showing troops visiting the official brothels which were well regulated and kept seperate there being Officers Brothels & Other Ranks Brothels.

As the postcards have been hand-tinted and are so small to define facial expressions I dont know how you can claim:
QUOTE
"Notice the vexed german soldiers..."


This is the funeral of a local person in the area where the Germans are based, possibly they were attending as guests or out of curiosity, they appear to be carrying no weapons so its reasonable to assume its not "Front-line", and there is no reason to presume the deceased was an enemy.

As some of the women are in the same style and colour dresses in both cards, the pictures show the same funeral.

Postcards such as these are not overtly "Propaganda" as such, but, are an interesting record of times gone by. And of immense interest to military historians.

I would say its a WW2 picture looking at the style of the German clothing.

That type of cap and short boots was not worn by Germans in WW1.

And the jacket on the guy to the right appears to have a reversible white side for use in winter.

That photo was published on page 106 of the book "Armata Romana 1941 - 1945" by Cornel Scafes et al. The caption mentions that the photo was taken in Slovakia in March 1945. The contrast between the uniforms and the "Haiduc"-like appearance of the Romanian soldier is mentioned in the caption with the explanation that it was the result of the poor-quality materials used in manufacturing the uniforms and the very poor supplies available to the front line echelons.

The name of the romanian is crp. Scanteie. It appears like that in a Luceafarul Almanach from the 80s.
