Homeless travellers fill a dilapidated Berlin railway station platform, shortly after Germany's defeat in World War II. They are poorly dressed and many carry small bundles of belongings, amongst them are soldiers who have made their own way from Germany's Russian Front.
German gun crew ready to fire a railway gun; everybody but the man to pull the lanyard have sealed their ears. The 170mm cannon weighed 80 tons and could hurl a projectile at targets as far away as 26 km. The photo was taken during the invasion of Poland, Sept 1939.
