    For the longest time I've been trying to find out which German army, groups, or absolutely anything came through Stanislaw (Currently known as Ivano-Frankivsk) and eventually passed through my village just south of the city. Since there's very small amounts of info about the occupation of Stanislaw I've never been able to 100% say oh it was the 17th or 26th. Though im sure about Army Group South which is being vague. Then I came across a video doing side by sides in the main city during ww2 and 2021. If you could help identify anybody I would be very greatful. I'm sure identifying the rest would be easier.

    The city was occupied by the Hungarian army (Carpathian Group), then handed over to the Wehrmacht. The photos were probably taken at that time (compare the uniforms).
    On the right of the Hungarians was the Armeeoberkommando (AOK) XI/ 11. Armee (generaloberst Ritter von Schobert) in Jassy, on the left the AOK XVII/17. Armee (General von Stülpnagel).

    The construction of the Munich U-bahn began in 1938 with a grand ceremony. From left to right: Robert Ley, Adolf Wagner, Adolf Hitler, Dr. Dorpmueller, Ludwig Siebert, Ritter v. Schobert and Hugo Sperrle Stock Photo - Alamy

    Looking at the alamy picture - link just above - one thing that struck me was the striking similarities in appearance between the individuals there (beside AH) and that some of them looked like Hitler and some like Goering etc.

    And wondering (how) would this have continued in the "1000 year reich" ?

    Well, the uniform makes everyone the same, as the saying goes. ´

    The distinctive Adolf beard, however, was not an invention of the Gröfaz, it existed long before: In the U.S. it was the Toothbrush Moustache, as Charlie Chaplin wore it, in Germany the parts were called two-finger beard, but were better known as "trench beard", because in WW1 the then still quite extensive beards had to be shortened because of the gas masks. So they became after the war also something like an unofficial sign of former war participants. The carpet-biter merely made him notorious
