German Victory Parade in Warsaw 1939 (Hugo Jaeger Collection)


5th October, 1939, one day ahead of the surrender of the last Polish army group surrounded in the eastern Poland, the German Victory Parade took place at Ujazdowski Avenue, Warsaw, where the 8. Armee received an inspection. It was said Hitler was shock by the broken cityscape – as a result of the bombardments 10% of the city’s buildings were entirely destroyed and further 40% were heavily damaged. Jochen Peiper, who served as the first Adjutant of the Reichsführer then, should be nearby behind the scenes.
