Pathé news with fake sound added recently.
It shows Soviet civilians greeting the Wehrmach German soldiers as welcomed heroes.

FRANZ GRASSER
(26.3.1911 — 13.11.1944)

Image

Below are two accounts of this German photographer, some of whose photography can be seen here...
Franz Grasser was born in Bad Wörishofen, Bavaria 1911 and learned photography from his uncle who owned a photo and souvenir shop in St. Moritz, Switzerland. In 1936, he got a job as a travel photographer which gave him the opportunity to travel around the world and photograph a diverse range of landscape, people, cultures.

Grasser was later conscripted into the Wehrmacht in 1942 and was sent to the Netherlands and, later to Ukraine in 1943, always with his camera close by. In 1944 he was taken prisoner and sent to a POW camp located in Novorossiysk, he would later die there in November 1944, Age 32.
Franz was a photographer before the war and his war-period photography is particularly poignant.

Conscripted in 1942, during his service with the Webrmacht (German Army) he continued to take photos, leaving us an extensive collection of documents in black-and-white and AGFA colour.
He avoided merely shooting scenarios of death and destruction, and instead his photos focused mainly on his companions and the wide landscapes of southern Soviet Union and its people.

When his division (the 376th Inf. Div.) was destroyed in southern Ukraine in August 1944 he was declared MIA (missing in action). The German War Grave Commission has him listed as deceased in Soviet captivity near Novorossiysk on November 13, 1944.
