The image: a full-length depiction of a German infantryman, wearing a cloth cap and a rifle over his shoulder, who grins at the viewer. He is leading a downcast woman by the arm along the street, along with several other adults huddled close by, most of whom carry small suitcases. A crowd of upset onlookers in the background are guarded by further German soldiers.
