0106 | Photo | Einsatzgruppe Jugoslawien



Uniform of the Yugoslav king. Members of the Gestapo's Special Detachment Hintze and the 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 in the world; their noisy voices strangely echoed in the silence of the monastery". The photograph was soon published in the "Berlin Illustrated Newspaper", along with a propaganda text about the king as a traitor of his people, and also, at the end of the year, in the book "Tanks in the Balkans" – as a concluding illustration of the collapse of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia. (In the post-war Yugoslavia, the photo was forgotten; only the one from Drvar, showing seized Tito's uniform, was published.)

Original caption: "Serbian state treasure in a rocky eyrie. Among other finds, there is also a uniform of King Peter, who left behind in his hasty flight large amounts of luggage and a state treasure of 375 million dinars."

Uniforma jugoslovenskog kralja. Pripadnici gestapovskog Specijalnog odreda Hince i kopnene 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. (U posleratnoj Jugoslaviji ova slika je zaboravljena; objavljivana je samo ona iz Drvara, sa zaplenjenom Titovom uniformom.)
