sdkfz-251-train.jpg

No Balkenkreuz or weapons, so post-WW2?

 

The photo is well known. I think it is one of a number showing similar scenes. I cannot recall the details, but it was German units fleeing

the Russian advance and taking their families back with them. I am guessing that the units fell back through their home towns or last posting in order to collect their families and get to the US/Brit/French zones.

 

If not that, then opportunistic gypsies?

Doug
