    I saw this, too. But do we know that the image is even authentic? Something is wrong with the light in this picture.

    In any case, Anders, there are three more hats there for you to secure.


    The lighting really does look strange in that room, however if the
    power had been cut in the depths of the bunker, or any part
    of Berlin at the time, there would be a need for artificial
    light to take any photographs..............





    Regards,

    Considering that the iconographic image of the Soviet flag on the Reichstag was as staged as the stars and stripes on Iwo Jima, I wonder if this is not a scene from a Soviet film on the conquest of Berlin.
    The famous photo of the flag-raising on Iwo Jima was not staged. There is video footage made at the same time as the still photo which proves it. The group photo of the Marines around the first (smaller) flag raised on Iwo Jima was posed for Rosenthal.
