@NBForrest i saw rush in concert, it was impressive. i have never experienced such an all-sense attack as when they started.

@Alex_Linder It is my regret not to have seen them. They are (were in Peart's case) great musicians with great songs.

@NBForrest tell you what, it made me understand Nazis better. you can be completely overwhelmed and moved in spite of yourself by noise that loud and music that good.

@NBForrest it had to be similar, their understanding of what jews call 'production values.

we all want to be part of something greater. but nothing that offends our mind like xtianity, that's just unjustifiable, indefensible sad-sackism

@Alex_Linder Oh, to have been at a Nuremberg rally, or under the balcony as Hitler watched the torchlight victory parade march past...

@NBForrest @Alex_Linder my dad saw him speak there when he was in the hitler youth and I have some pictures of some family member there wearing a u-boat uniform

@Alex_Linder @NBForrest it's not nuremberg like I thought. it's october 12th 1943. I don't know which one is my relative, I can't read the back maybe you can help me read it?

@Alex_Linder @NBForrest I scribbled my last name out with paint lol I can't make heads nor tails out of this

@su @NBForrest i cant tell what the first word. it looks like verreichigung but that's not a word. close to association but not spelled same way.

it's obviously someone saying picture of general reviewing the troops before they set off to sea, i think

@Alex_Linder @NBForrest thanks! I couldn't even make out the letters at all. I have more but they all say the same thing mostly and as hard to read.
Can you make out what the name is on the bottom?

Follow

@su @Alex_Linder @NBForrest That is "Matrose" which means "sailor" == lowest rank

@Marko @Alex_Linder @NBForrest thanks! I never would've figured this out without your help!
