0111 | Photo | 13. SS-Freiwilligen b. h. Gebirgs-Division (Kroatien)



A seemingly ordinary howitzer crew of the 13th SS Division – consisting, actually, of five brothers. Although there was a number of cases of family members enlisting together in the Bosnian-Herzegovinian SS division, five brothers serving in the same unit were a sensation – so an entire photo report was made about them for propaganda purposes. In this picture, however, only three brothers are seen; the NCO (on the far left) is not one of them, he is their commander. The photograph was originally black-and-white, but it was coloured professionally, for the German wartime magazine "Signal".

Naizgled obična posada jedne haubice 13. SS-divizije – a čine je, zapravo, petorica braće. Iako je u bosansko-hercegovačkoj SS-diviziji bilo više slučajeva zajedničkog prijavljivanja članova iste porodice, petorica braće koji služe u istoj jedinici bili su senzacija – pa je u propagandne svrhe o njima napravljena i jedna cela fotoreportaža. Na ovoj slici, međutim, vide se samo trojica braće; podoficir (sasvim levo) nije jedan od njih, on im je komandir. Fotografija je u originalu bila crno-bela, ali je obojena stručno, za nemački ratni časopis "Signal".
