Mocking Hitler

Written by: George Chittenden : 27 Aug 2019

This unusual photo shows British, American and Russian soldiers mocking Hitler and his salute on his balcony at the Reich Chancellery in Berlin. It’s nice to see a light-hearted image of WWII for a change isn’t it? In the image we can see Corporal Russell M. Ochwad, of Chicago, who is playing the part of Hitler, with a British and Russian soldier standing on each side.

The crowd below is made up mostly of Americans. The photo was taken on 6th July 1945, around two months after Germany had surrendered. Reaching the Chancellery signalled the end of a very long and difficult road for these men, so you can’t blame them for celebrating.
