Quantity: 1 available


Offered without [much] comment, twelve original, unattributed snapshots from World War II, with German soldiers lounging, laughing, posing with the wreckage of their war—what Hannah Arendt termed "the banality of evil"—a group shot with a snowman ... you know, normal Nazi stuff. Sizes average 6 by 9 cm, with some smaller, a few bigger. Good condition with light edge wear, and a few light creases and stains; one looks like it was carried in a pocket for a while, and another has evidence of being peeled from a photo album. The image of two soldiers standing in front of what looks like a sports stadium has a light pen mark just above the building. Two of the images have “Herschberg” (in western Germany) written on the back, one has the text pictured, and the others have no notations at all.
