Angel of Mercy

The surrender of a German soldier during fighting in Illy, France near the Luxembourg border in September 1944.

From the photographer's notes:

"Finally, I got me a 'souvenir.' Somehow the Jerries I got in my sights always seemed to have bad luck. Then one day in Illy, France, I spotted an officer inside a battered building and I yelled for him to come on out. He did.", ca. 09/1944
