German Officers Executing Prisoners in WWII

 A new website to replace this blog

Here is a very graphic photo of two German Army officers getting ready to execute two prisoners. They look to be mid ranking officers and behind them on the right there is a group of  lower ranking officers and some NCOs looking on.  At the far back of the photo there seems to be the commanding officer of this unit waiting for his orders to be carried out.   This photo is not seen on many websites. This was sent to me by one of my Russian fans.

They look too old to be NCO ranks and they are both wearing officer's hats and one of them has the gold braid around hat showing that he is a high ranking officer, probably Col. and the other is probably a Major.
