WWII Easter Eggs for Hitler. I usually don't recreate scenes exactly like their photos, but this one couldn't be any cooler. Easter Morning March 10, 1945: West Germany. Tech. Sergeant William Thomas and Private First Class Joseph Jackson. Photo credit: 1st Lt. John D. Moore. 969th Field Artillary Battalion. Researching this photo I read the comments on different sites that had to point out that Adolf was spelled wrong. OK. WHO CARES? Everything about this moment is incredible.
