0135 | Photo | SS-Freiwilligen-Division "Prinz Eugen"



Soldiers of the SS Division "Prinz Eugen" singing on a break during mountaineering training. According to the original photo caption, what they are singing is "Edelweiss" – a pre-war love song, particularly popular among mountain troopers (since the same flower also served as the insignia of their troops).

Text: Ivan Ž.

Photographer: Eugen Fink.
Date: November 1942.
Location: unknown, Yugoslavia.
Original caption: "SS mountain troopers among the rocks. Everything went well. A German mountain song rings out. What else could it be other than... 'It Was an Edelweiss'."

Raspevani vojnici SS-divizije "Princ Eugen" na pauzi tokom obuke iz planinarenja. Prema originalnom natpisu fotografije, ono što pevaju je "Runolist" – predratna ljubavna pesma, posebno popularna među brdskim lovcima (jer je isti cvet služio i kao oznaka njihovih jedinica).
