WW2: Loot and Ruins: Leipzig

I am like wow, so much happening in this photo. Its taken from the final months of WW2. Pretty typical around that time the allied troops pushing back the Nazi and recovering their treasures and spoils! If this is in Leipzig what are the Statues supposed to be for? We can the place has been bombed, roof gone? Looks like a storage facility judging by the number of boxes in the background. Allied troops would send whatever they could find back home by Army post.

WW2: Waldenburg Destruction

Allied troops making their way through a somewhat destroyed city of Waldenburg Germany. This was 1945, towards the end of the war. You can see from the smoke and steam raising up its pretty fresh.
