A 15 year old German soldier cries after being captured by US forces during World War II.  With both of his parents dead, he volunteered for a Luftwaffe anti-aircraft crew in order to support himself. When this photo was taken, he had walked over 60 miles in order to avoid being captured by the Soviets.

SO SAD!
