Description

A soldier walks in the snow, hugging a baby to his chest. He holds the hand of a little boy with a basket who walks beside him on his left. Another boy, carrying a stick on which a German helmet has been staked, walks beside him. Villagers stream in single file out of a church behind the soldier.
