I am looking for the same type of photos of Germans in Moscow...

As per your request, here is a German soldier who ended up in Moscow (not as planned, though):

That's some sort of ID card. This is NOT wat I was asking for.
Do you have any photos of German soldiers IN ACTION?

No its not "some sort of id card", :roll:

it is in fact a "Memoriam Card" or so called Death Card, sent by the Family to Relatives and close friends upon the death of a person, in this case a German pilot killed on the 13th of October 1941 on a mission over Moscow. aged 21.

The sending of this type of card is a predominantly Catholic tradition which still takes place today in many Catholic Countries.


The "movie still" looks more like a model tank diorama in 1/35th scale posed in front of a photographic background!!!:unsure:

Kevin in Deva :D

NGOA, as this German Death Card notes, this soldier died IN ACTION, over Moscow. That's why I thought it might be of interest to you.

Gen. Dénes, I am not interested in death certificates.

I assume that German thought he would march in Moscow the same way his contrymen march in Paris....
Well, it seems like the story of Napoleon didn't teach him anything....
