After the movie "Der untergang" and a host of books... this is an interesting topic....

How about seeing some stuff relating to Berlin 1945-1950? Russian, German, Allied HQ. Berlin Airlift etc. etc. etc..

I am sure there is some good material in our hands...

(None in mine though :-(

Chris - I have a British anti-looting poster from Berlin in the late 1940s. I picked it up at a Berlin flea market in the 80s. Unfortunately it's too big to scan. Kevin

I have found this picture in a Russian fleemarket in Moscow last summer. I later sold this picture on eBay. I'm sorry I didn't find the picture without the watermarks.

This is a private picture made in the garden of the Neue Reichskanzlei.

I got this from the son of the man who removed it from Hitler's chancellery in mid-1945.

Who knows what it is............?
