As I sift through a recent WWII negative acquisition of 600+ images taken by a Catholic chaplain of the 9th Armored Division, I couldn’t help but post the following series of shots taken somewhere near Regensburg Germany. They show a group of German orphans standing in the rubble of a demolished building. The happy smiles belie the true sadness these children must have felt as they lost their families.
