There is a moving set of photographs >from 1941 taken by a German soldier
as the first German armored columns entered Alytus. Especially poignant
was the note written by the German photographer on the back of a
photograph concerning the Lithuanian "patriots" liberating a Jewish shoe
factory. (Translation: stealing the shoes). The sequence of snapshots are
found in the National Archives Photographic Division.
