0106 | Photo | Einsatzgruppe Jugoslawien



Members of Special Detachment Hintze (Secret Police) and the German Army examine the uniform of King Peter II of Yugoslavia, which they found in the Ostrog monastery during the arrest of Serbian Patriarch Gavrilo. According to the Patriarch, the "Germans were so pleased and happy, as if they had solved the biggest problem of the world; their noisy voices echoed strangely in the silence of the monastery". The photograph was soon published in the "Berlin Illustrated Newspaper", with propaganda text about the King as a traitor of his people, and, at the end of the year, also in the book "Tanks in the Balkans" – as a concluding illustration of the collapse of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia. After the war, the photo was forgotten in the new Yugoslavia, and only the one from Drvar, with seized Tito's uniform, was being published.

Pripadnici Specijalnog odreda Hince (tajna policija) i nemačke vojske pregledaju uniformu Kralja Petra II Karađorđevića, koju su pronašli u manastiru Ostrogu prilikom hapšenja Patrijarha srpskog Gavrila. Prema patrijarhovim rečima, "Nemci su bili tako zadovoljni i srećni, kao da su rešili najveći problem sveta; njihov drekavi glas čudno je odjekivao u manastirskoj tišini". Fotografija je ubrzo objavljena u "Berlinskim ilustrovanim novinama", uz propagandni tekst o kralju kao izdajniku svoga naroda, a krajem godine i u knjizi "Tenkovi na Balkanu" – kao zaključna ilustracija sloma Kraljevine Jugoslavije. Posle rata, u novoj Jugoslaviji je slika zaboravljena, i objavljivana je samo ona iz Drvara, sa zaplenjenom Titovom uniformom.
