Surrender fake or real?
Famous picture of a German boy soldier surrendering to a Scottish soldier.
But is it real? One of our correspondents, Fernando Urquijo from Spain, thinks that this picture is faked: "An excellent piece of 'cut and paste', but a disaster regarding perspective and anatomy. The boy is too small and his proportions are wrong. Childrenīs heads are proportionally bigger than grown-up's and this boy has a very small head, while the Stahlhelm fits very well (the smallest WW1 Stahlhelm was size 60). The perspective is wrong too: look at the boy's hand, it should not be where it seems to be."
