attack-of-muffins:











P.O.W. Horace Greasley defiantly confronts Heinrich Himmler during an inspection of the concentration camp he was confined in. Greasley also famously escaped from the camp and snuck back in more than 200 times to meet in secret with a local German girl he had fallen in love with.

walzerjahrhundert:

Reichstagsgebäude (Reichstag building) in Berlin, Germany designed by architect Paul Wallot from Frankfurt and built in 1884 - 1894.
In 1916 the words “Dem Deutschen Volke” (To the German people) were carved above the main façade. (so the photo shown probably dates from sometime between 1916 and certainly before 1938)

since I am currently in Germany, thought german history was a good topic for the present.

Grand Duchesses Olga Nikolaevna (1895-1918) and Tatiana Nikolaevna (1897-1918), posing for a photograph in 1913.  The ‘Big Pair’ was known for being very close to each other, perhaps even more than their younger sisters the ‘Little Pair.’  In fact, they were born just eighteen months apart.
