German cavalry, Polish children

In this photograph, we see German cavalry trotting through the streets of a Polish town, lance pennons flying. Dozens of Polish children have been attracted to the spectacle - note the bare feet - and are gleefully absorbing the sight of real soldiers.

It is perhaps a sobering thought that other Germans, attempting to renew their original plan of conquest in the East, would turn Poland into something resembling Hell just about the time when these children were entering the prime of life.
