I checked your link Brian, that also is not the original picture. If you want to research the image and send us a link to a page with written details on the original photograph (photographer, type of film, etc), I'd accept the above picture as having been colorized from a B&W image. About the best you can say of the pic at the link you've provided, is that the picture at your link is less cropped than the image above. FYI, B&W prints can be made from color negatives in the darkroom as easily as color can be added to a B&W image using photoshop, you just use B&W photographic paper instead of color. You can't know for certain whether or not this picture was taken using Agfacolor film without such data as I requested above. Of course, if you note my first comment, you'll see that all I wrote was that this 'LOOKED' like an Agfacolor image. That's because I've seen hundreds of pictures (and a couple of foreign films) where the images were developed using that process. The color tones of this image match what I've remember from my personal past experience, but I don't mind being proved wrong...

I didn't know pastries (berliners) could speak.

This print looks like it was made in Agfacolor, a color film process where colors tend to be more pastel than the kodacolor process that was more popular around the world. If you carefully examine the background of the picture, you will see that the smoke isn't just grey, it's blue toned, that the fire burning in the background is orange, that there are subtile greens and browns in the building, and that the soldier not holding the flag has definite skin tone color on his wrists.

... and other bigotted, prejudiced and even racist remarks! "Berliners"? I remember another American dumbfuck using that word :)

I don't think photshopped, but it definately was airbrushed. The soldier at the bottom has a wristwatch on his left wrist, in the original picture he had 4 more on his right wrist. Spoils of war.

Well it is interesting how only red tones managed their way in an otherwise greyscale image.

According to reports from Berliners (from the time), the Russians were a savage primitive lot. They would go into peoples houses or flats and went straight to the kitchen looking for food. Any tinned food they would pick up and throw down, exclaiming: "laboratory!" They only knew raw meat, eggs, cheese, vegetables, milk and fruit. Nothing packaged or tinned. During the Stalin famine era, where millions died from starvation, many peasants would abduct young children and eat them alive. And it was not uncommon for starving peasants to eat the dead bodies of those that died. No doubt similar happened during China's Mao Zedong period of famine, where millions also died from starvation.
