“For the dead and the living, we must bear witness.”
― Elie Wiesel
When I look through the photographs of old soldiers of the German Army, I sometimes stumble over images like the ones shown below.
You might overlook them, when not actually searching for them and surprisingly this is just what happened here, as this album has been in my possession for ages. The small series of photographs was taken by a soldier of an unidentified Wehrmacht artillery unit shortly after entering the town of Kolomyja (West Ukraine).
More info on Kolomyja and Kolomyja Ghetto can be found HERE.
I had a long think what to write here, but words fail me. The Shoah fills me with shame, and I pray for the victims and the survivors.
I will let the images speak for themselves and I have refrained from marking these images with the usual “gottmituns” tag…
