Lol. I think the photo was taken in the 50's and I'm guessing the building in question was damaged by bombing or artillery and they left it that way.

Photo of the grave of a KIA French soldier in front of the armored vehicle(AMD Panhard?)he was in. Buried by the Wehrmacht. Dated 20 May 1940 during the Battle of France. What are the items laying on his grave? Was it taken out by a tank I wonder?

These two women are happy because seeing a chimney sweep in Germany was supposed to bring you good luck. Circa 1938.

In post 50 the objects on the grave are drum magazines for the French mitrailleuse model 1931, also known as Reibel, machine-gun.

You, my friend, have an outstanding collection of photos of everyday life in the 3rd Reich. Well done!

I like how the German's have indicated the number plate on the grave marker in case the vehicle is moved!

Totems for the afterlife in typical Wagnerian/Valhalla fashion: food or drink container and ammunition for the hunt, or as a representation or recognition for being a warrior.
