Partisan attack on Poganek. Six of the 44 German border guards captured during the Partisan attack on the Poganek Castle (near Litija). They are mostly elderly men of Austrian origin, with low combat morale, happy to be out of the war. Upon capture, the Partisans took their uniforms (except for the caps) and boots away, giving them their ragged (civilian) clothes in return. (The castle that the border guards defended was torched.) Also pictured is a Partisan guard, a member of the XV Slovenian Division.

Partizanski napad na Poganek. Šestorica od 44 nemačkih graničara zarobljenih u partizanskom napadu na zamak Poganek (kod Litije). U pitanju su većinom stariji ljudi austrijskog porekla, slabog borbenog morala, srećni što je rat za njih završen. Po zarobljavanju, partizani su im oduzeli uniforme (osim kapa) i obuću, i u zamenu dali svoju odrpanu (civilnu) odeću. (Zamak koji su graničari branili je spaljen.) Na slici je i jedan partizanski stražar, pripadnik XV slovenačke divizije.
