The photos in the above link were taken by Johannes Hähle and depict the civilian population of Kharkov under occupation by Nazi Germany during the Spring or Summer of 1942. Hähle was a photographer with a Propagandakompanie, and at the time he was assigned to a Luftwaffe reconnaissance unit, likely 4.(H)/Aufkl.Gr. 10 "Tannenberg" (4th Squadron, Reconnaissance Group 10 "Tannenberg").

They're great shots as they show the difference between Czarist and Communist building styles... just look at those horrid box apartments. The open air cremation is also an incredible site. I wonder if that was more likely to be a memorial service for someone who was killed but left little or no remains behind. The presence of a priest at that time would make a cremation very unlikely.
Why is patience a virtue? Why can't "hurry the f*** up" be a virtue?
