    Thank you for a very interesting thread!

    As a collector, I hope I'm not offending anyone, it tickles one's curiosity regarding the SS Visor on the ground (the second pic).
    Who was the owner?
    What happened to the visor, was it thrown in the ditch or did someone pick it up?
    etc.

    "When the British and Canadians advanced on Bergen-Belsen in 1945, the German army negotiated a truce and exclusion zone around the camp to prevent the spread of typhus.[16] On April 11, 1945 Heinrich Himmler (the Reichsführer SS) agreed to have the camp handed over without a fight. SS guards ordered prisoners to bury some of the dead. The next day, Wehrmacht representatives approached the British and were brought to VIII Corps. At around 1 a.m. on April 13, an agreement was signed, designating an area of 48 square kilometers (19 square miles) around the camp as a neutral zone.":

    Here's a fascinating 4 minute video of W-SS surrendering in Italy. Much headgear to be seen. That and the locals bidding them farewell with celebratory slaps, spit, and projectiles.
