I identified a photo from my collection this afternoon.

This is a soldier from the 117th Jäger Division at Mystras, overlooking the ruins of Sparta, January 24, 1944. (That’s some great unintentional symbolism.)


PS: According to http://deutschklasse.livejournal.com/130614.html "This was taken less than a month after the Division massacred the population of Kalavryta."
