The Germans crack down on ordinary Poles

Heinrich Himmler greets a German 'settler' who is to be given new accommodation in German occupied Poland. 1940.

A large group of women stood on both sides of the street, cursing the Germans and crying. Seeing this I was reminded of the Jews marching prior to their liquidation. Everything looked the same, except for one thing: the big difference was attitude. The Jews marched in complete resignation, guarded only by a few gendarmes. Here these marching men showed hatred toward Germans and were being guarded by hundreds of soldiers carrying machine guns.
