German customs guards pose for a propaganda photo with three unarmed, barefoot Roma, one of whom is a child, staging a capture (the press would late present the Roma as "bandits"). This is a repeated shot of the three prisoners leaving a demolished barn (it had to be retaken because the previous one turned out comical). In the previous shot, it was the child who came out of the barn first – with a smile on his face – while the customs guards threatened him with weapons from the sides, in overblown poses. In the repeated shot, the prisoner order of appearance was reversed, the boy was placed in the back (so that, because of the perspective, he would not seem so small) and all the faces got serious.

Nemački carinici poziraju za propagandnu fotografiju sa trojicom nenaoružanih, bosonogih Roma, od kojih je jedan dete, glumeći zarobljavanje (kasnije će u štampi Romi biti predstavljeni kao "banditi"). Ovo je ponovljeni snimak izlaska trojice zarobljenika iz razrušenog ambara (morao je biti ponovo snimljen jer je prethodni ispao komično). Na prethodnom snimku, iz ambara prvo izlazi dete – sa osmehom na licu – dok mu sa strana carinici u izveštačenim pozama prete oružjem. Na ponovljenom snimku, redosled pojavljivanja zarobljenika je obrnut, dečak je postavljen sasvim nazad (tako da, zbog perspektive, ne deluje tako mali) i sva su lica uozbiljena.
