A Candid Photograph of Two Young Soldiers Taken in Austria, 1945

In 1945, these two soldiers had hiked up into the Austrian Alps and a friend took their picture as they embraced in the snow.


One soldier kept these snapshots hidden in a shoebox until the early 1990s when he handed them to a relative, along with the ring that he was wearing in the Alps photo, with the request: “Please keep these safe for me.”

According to the relative, the soldier, nearing the end of his life, wanted to preserve the one thing that meant more to him than anything else. He passed away two years later.
