Flirting at the Wannsee (1947)
Despite the initial prohibition against fraternizing (the order forbidding private contact between American soldiers and the German population), encounters between American soldiers and German women were frequent after 1945. This photograph shows one such encounter at the beach on the Wannsee in Berlin. Photo by Friedrich Seidenst├╝cker.
