    Got this link from workmate, this is site dedicated to GPW and WW2 history but most interesting you can find lots of then & now photos on Ukraine's capitol - Kiev, there are lost of them over the main page. They are captioned in Russian but you can easily load this site through translate.google.com. Here is the link: http://reibert.info

    Site might load slow but it after few retries it will load normally.

    Good Lord, it's Alex.
    Nice to see you about on here, chap.

    Solid stuff (translates well with the Google button too).
    I like the second from last on the front page, as the 'then' shot is so familiar.

    A lots of good pics in there. There are also a number of german soldiers photo albums - I can't find a proper section to post it in, here is the pic that might be good question to find answer for: http://reibert.info/gallery/v/foto_album/23/0145.jpg.html, who this soldier might be and who did captured him?

    might be good question to find answer for: 0145, who this soldier might be and who did captured him?
    Looking at the other pictures, and assuming some kind of context, he'll possibly be French colonial army, mate. 'Tirailleurs Senegalais', West African troops.
    (Not my subject though. Don't know how thorough French military segregation was, or if resident black blokes from France itself could join the 'local' Army?)

    Whoever he is, he'll likely have had a rough old time post-capture. Goebbels singled out France's Colonial troops as worthy of special (unpleasant) treatment.

    Alex, flicking through that gallery with the picture you mentioned - post it in the 1940 Section. Think they'd love it.
    Think it's this one:
    Фотоальбом №23 Looks like 1940 to me in later shots, hundreds in there.

    Tons of albums and interesting pictures in the main list aren't there:
    Галерея

    25 personal Private albums:
    Фотоальбомы немецких солдат

    Lots of postwar tank digging up too:
    Военная археология

    Blimey - cheers.

    Yeah, especially this one showing us an event of rising up the T-34-76 from the swamp in Cherkassy region of Ukraine: Подъем танка Т-34
    That was on 17-18th of July 2008.

    Several ways mate. You can go here:
    Google Translate
    And whack the URL in, but it's a tad clumsy to use and you sometimes have to keep refreshing the translation.

    So on my current browser (Firefox) I've got a button generated by the add-on/Plug-in 'Wiktionary and Google Translate'.
    If I'm on a foreign page I just click on the toolbar button & it magically translates everything inline.

    (sorry, cross-posted with alex.)

    Do you think the photographer was trying to say something?
    Maybe not terribly keen on that officer?
