This must be the best photo summing up Nazi Germany that I’ve ever seen. It was taken by Richard Peter in an air-raid shelter in 1946. I found the photo while looking for material from his book “Dresden - Eine Kamera klagt an”. After the destruction of Dresden, Peter had taken tons of photos of the city, the most famous one being a statue overlooking the ruins of the city. The book was published in the early 1950s in East Germany.
