    #11 #17 It's good things didn't turn out for the worse and stayed on the gray side

    • etcrr's goat

      You sir really should change your name again….. you will never stop being trolled….. BTW, I know for a fact that it is more than just one or two people trolling you……

      • BobbyDoo

        because you are one of them? I can't think of any other way you would know

  • flibble

    simple method, simple idea but so well executed that it's astounding.

    • Nick

      Agreed. These turned out absolutely beautiful. I definitely appreciated seeing them

  • LucretiusCarus

    #11 Hasn't changed a whole lot except for that selling the country out to the Germans thing.

    But then there's the EU…nevermind, I guess.


    kind of makes you think how lucky we are today

  • Casper

    Ghosts! Thumbs-up if you wish you were a nazi-killing soldier

    • Nicnac

  • Mike

  • Kyle

    Very cool.
    Great job to whoever did these.

  • Jenkins McGee

    #17 Ignorance is bliss.

    • kashakesh

      I think that it would be kind of fun to super impose someone round-house-kicking hitler's head. Overall, I like these past-present combos – it brings things into perspective.

  • Junky

    Take a second and realize how pathetic you have become fake etcrr – getting so angry at a troll that you have become one yourself. For shame!

    • etcrr's goat

      No sir, you do not realize that I have reached troll level "ninja" beeatch!!

      • the real etcrr

        there is not only one fake etcrr, we are many, he will never escape us……..

      • BobbyDoo

        wow, its shocking and sad to see the direction some people take in their lives

  • BSS

    These are cool. Post more.

    • Serious

      They can't, they're too busy posting poop chutes to post cool stuff like this.

  • ChicO85T

    #17 to think those ppl are standing 5 feet away from where one of the most evil men ever stood and took a picture

  • Anthony_Tyler

    Incredible post.


    A bit ghostly…

  • Miss Ing Thepoint


    • The Stadium Guy...

      Really???? Would have never figured that out if you had not posted your comment…

  • minervamink0903

    This is the most interesting post you have ever had. I really enjoyed these photos. In a way, I kind of wish I could have grown up in those times to know what its like to have to complain about real problems and not first world ones. :)

    A Loyal Chivette!

    • Dick Salad

      And just imagine all the ass that generation of young men plundered in Paris and all over Europe…

    • kashakesh

      If you talk to some of the people that were around then (maybe the frenchies or regular german folk), it wasn't a time that they remember fondly. After the war ended, hunger was all that anyone seems to remember. We are lucky to live today.

      • topher

        Given that millions of men died while the female population remained relatively intact I suspect the post-war period had its benefits for the male survivors.

    • Hiiiii

      If you look back… America was still considered a first world when these pictures were taking.

      A logical chiver

      • minervamink0903

        If you look back…. at my original comment you would notice that I was making a reference to theChive's first world posts. I wasn't trying to be logical! :)

        A Chiver who doesnt give a single fuck! :)

  • Joe Moore

    Beautiful pics, with a real sense of sadness

  • evadingnun

    Not like theChive not to post the source. This is a pretty cool album though.

  • that_ALBANIAN_guy

    #5 This is groundbreaking photography.

    But all in all, really enjoyed this post. I happen to like history, geography and architectural evolution.

  • WTF

    #11 not true

    • nemesis

      What makes you say that? I had my suspicions about the double-decker bus with the yellow number plate at the back as well, but then I remembered seeing them during my last trip to Paris.

    #17 looks the the end of Return of the Jedi. If the Jedi were Nazis….

  • twoedges

    This is an epic post, Chive how about a little back story to these?

    • gmen

      90% of them are Berlin, all are during the Nazi Era.
