Six of the 44 members of the Customs Border Guard captured during the Partisan attack on the Poganek Castle (near Litija). The prisoners 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, and gave them their ragged (civilian) clothes in return. (The castle that the customs guards defended was torched.) Also pictured is a Partisan guard, a member of the IV Slovenian Brigade, (XV Division,) who looks a bit distrustfully at the photographer, an American very much disliked by Slovenian Partisans for his arrogant behaviour – "Life" magazine correspondent John Phillips.

Šestorica od 44 pripadnika carinske pogranične straže zarobljenih u partizanskom napadu na zamak Poganek (kod Litije). Zarobljenici 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 carinici branili je spaljen.) Na slici je i jedan partizanski stražar, pripadnik IV slovenačke brigade (XV divizije), koji pomalo podozrivo gleda fotografa, Amerikanca nimalo voljenog među slovenačkim partizanima zbog svog oholog ponašanja – dopisnika časopisa "Život" (Life) Džona Filipsa.
