Wonderful place...where some Germans were reminded the use of the white flag in 1941.

Very interesting find. Very picturesque.

Got me thinking about the soccer field. Was it grass? How could they grow it in that climate. Searching I found that it is artificial turf.

Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

Someday your life will flash in front of your eyes. Make sure it is worth watching.

The soccer field could have been grass, but wouldn't be usable for as long during the cold seasons smile
