Operation 25. A Yugoslav symbolically surrenders his smashed rifle to a German. Although the seized war material was usually maximally exploited, the Germans would also occasionally crush the seized rifles, for propaganda purposes, in order to demonstrate the collapse of the enemy army symbolically as well. In the picture, the destroyed weapon is being received by a motorcyclist of the SS Bodyguard "Adolf Hitler", somewhere in Macedonia.

Operacija 25. Jugosloven simbolično predaje svoju slomljenu pušku Nemcu. Iako je zaplenjeni ratni materijal obično bio maksimalno iskorišćavan, Nemci bi zaplenjene puške ponekad i lomili, u propagandne svrhe, ne bi li i simbolično prikazali slom neprijateljske vojske. Na slici, uništeno oružje prima jedan motociklista Telesne garde SS-a "Adolf Hitler", negde u Makedoniji.
