Quiet Days before Operation Barbarossa

Quiet days in Johannisburg (East Prussia) with the blooming tulips while the war against Soviet Union was imminent, early summer 1941. Left is Oberleutnant Hermann Budenbender (Abteilungsadjutant Aufklärungs-Abteilung 35 / 35.Infanterie-Division) while at right is unknown Führer Panzerspähzug from the same unit. In early April 1941, the 35. Infanterie-Division (known as "Fish Division") began moving to the east - originally was staying in the area north and east of Warsaw but then moved to East Prussia in the space around Johannisburg. They stayed until 10 June 1941 and then march further to the east in "Suwalkizipfel" for the upcoming Unternehmen Barbarossa
