Never Seen Photos Of A German Soldier Second World War.

Images belonging to a German soldier who lived in Argentina until the year 1939. Studying at a German school in barracks (Hindenburg Schule) he won a scholarship to travel to Germany. He was only 13 years old when the war broke out. Unable to return to Argentina, he lived with an aunt in the city of Bächlingen, until at the age of 17 he was forced to climb a Panzerkampfwagen VI Tiger and go to war. Destination: Rome. Of its five crew members, the highest-ranking had 25 years, and lower-ranking (he) was in charge of loading the gun.

The daily Stuttgarter Illustrierte, on August 16, 1944, shows on the front page a picture of men in combat. The who is standing in the hatch (and is marked with pen with the message "Dein Vater" (your father), is Georg). The journal was kept by the first wife of Georg.

An anecdote that I will never forget, is that told me Georg some years ago. While in the outskirts of Rome, at a date close to the Christmas of 1944, being bombarded on all sides, his superior decided to abandon the panzer and hiding in a House nearby. Once they arrived at the building, five soldiers fell into the basement and went into hiding, feeling more secure. But a few minutes, they heard noises of steps that hastily down to the same site where they were sheltered. Suddenly, in full darkness, Allied soldiers appear (I do not remember if they were Canadian or English, and Georg already isn't to remind me). Anyone managed to do anything, and the Commander of the Panzer, nervously approached the Canadians and showing a cigarette between his hands, trying to offer it to one of the allies, as proof that he did not want any conflict. No one said anything. They accepted smoking, one of them ignited it and began to smoke it. but they were understood with signs and stayed there, in silence, hoping that the bombing would stop. The silence was overwhelming. When all ended, again became signs implying that they were going to withdraw and Georg and his companions climbed the stairs, and returned to the Panzer. That day not as ovidaría ever.
