Opening of the winter programme of Soldiers' Radio Belgrade at the National Theatre. The performance of the German singer Edith Klawunde; this almost completely forgotten (and not that famous back then either) singer is only remembered as one of (many) performers of the song "Everything Passes, Everything Ends", the second biggest hit of Soldiers' Radio Belgrade (modelled after the famous "Lili Marleen"), which she recorded in Berlin, accompanied by (then famous) Adalbert Lutter's Dance Band, two months before this photograph was taken. The song was composed by the well known Austrian composer Fred Raymond, who cooperated with the Belgrade Radio as a member of the German propaganda troops (and who also performed at the National Theatre on this occasion). Pictured, the 28-year-old singer dances cheerfully, accompanied by the Dance Band of Soldiers' Radio Belgrade (in the background) led by the well known accordionist Hans Georg Schütz (outside the frame); the SS NCO who temporarily stood beside her is war correspondent Josef Schifko, cameraman of the "Prinz Eugen" Division (who was filming the show).

Otvaranje zimskog programa Vojničkog radija Beograd u Narodnom pozorištu. Nastup nemačke pevačice Edit Klavunde; ova danas skoro sasvim zaboravljena (a ni tada ne previše poznata) pevačica upamćena je samo kao jedan od (mnogobrojnih) izvođača pesme "Sve jednom prođe, sve se jednom završi", drugog najvećeg hita Vojničkog radija Beograd (napravljene po uzoru na proslavljenu "Lili Marlen"), koju je snimila u Berlinu uz muzičku pratnju (tada čuvenog) Plesnog orkestra Adalberta Lutera dva meseca pre nego što je nastala ova fotografija. Pesmu je komponovao poznati austrijski kompozitor Fred Rejmond, koji je sarađivao sa beogradskim radijom kao pripadnik nemačkih propagandnih trupa (i koji je ovom prilikom takođe bio nastupio u Narodnom pozorištu). Na slici, dvadesetosmogodišnja pevačica veselo pleše uz muzičku pratnju Plesnog orkestra Vojničkog radija Beograd (u pozadini) pod upravom poznatog harmonikaša Hansa Georga Šica (van kadra); SS-podoficir koji je privremeno stao pored nje je ratni dopisnik Jozef Šifko, snimatelj "Princ Eugen" divizije (koji je snimao šou).
