The Führer presents Belgrade with Karađorđe cannons. In front of the Military Museum in Kalemegdan (today's Belgrade City Institute for the Protection of Cultural Monuments), decorated with Yugoslav and German flags, white double-headed eagles and black swastikas, with honour guard and in the presence of high military and political officials, press and cameras – the German Military Attaché, Lieutenant General Moritz von Faber du Faur (in the foreground, second from the right), solemnly delivers, on behalf of the Führer, cannons of the legendary Serbian Vožd Karađorđe to the Yugoslav Minister of the Army and Navy, Army General Milutin Nedić (outside the frame). The old weapons of great historical value, priceless to the Serbs, which were previously displayed at the Vienna Military Museum, were presented to Belgrade by the German chancellor during the visit of the Yugoslav Prince-Regent Paul to Berlin (three weeks earlier). (A couple of years later, displayed at the same Vienna museum – as a prize of war – would be the uniform of the Yugoslav King Peter II, Prince Paul's nephew.) In the photo, also standing in the foreground, next to Faber du Faur, is the German Air Attaché, Lieutenant Colonel Carl-August von Schoenebeck (partially visible between the two officers is Minister Viktor von Heeren). The man standing on the far right in the background is Consul-General Franz Neuhausen, Nazi Party leader in Yugoslavia, vice-president of the German-Yugoslav Society and the future plenipotentiary general for economic affairs in occupied Serbia.

Firer poklanja Beogradu Karađorđeve topove. Ispred Vojnog muzeja na Kalemegdanu (današnji Zavod za zaštitu spomenika kulture grada Beograda), okićenog jugoslovenskim i nemačkim zastavama, belim dvoglavim orlovima i crnim kukastim krstovima, uz počasnu stražu i u prisustvu visokih vojnih i političkih zvaničnika, novinara i kamera – nemački vojni ataše, general-lajtnant Moric fon Faber di For (u prvom planu, drugi zdesna), svečano predaje, u firerovo ime, topove legendarnog srpskog vožda Karađorđa jugoslovenskom ministru vojske i mornarice, armijskom generalu Milutinu Nediću (van kadra). Ova stara oruđa od velike istorijske vrednosti, za Srbe neprocenjive, koja su prethodno bila izložena u Vojnom muzeju u Beču, nemački kancelar je poklonio Beogradu prilikom posete jugoslovenskog kneza-namesnika Pavla Berlinu (tri nedelje ranije). (Par godina kasnije, u istom bečkom muzeju – kao ratni plen – biće izložena uniforma jugoslovenskog kralja Petra II, sinovca kneza Pavla.) Na slici, u prvom planu pored Fabera di Fora stoji i nemački vazduhoplovni ataše, potpukovnik Karl-August fon Šenebek (između dvojice oficira delimično se vidi poslanik Viktor fon Heren). Čovek koji stoji sasvim desno u pozadini je generalni konzul Franc Nojhauzen, predvodnik nacističke partije u Jugoslaviji, potpredsednik Nemačko-jugoslovenskog društva i budući generalni opunomoćenik za privredu u okupiranoj Srbiji.
