The Brenner Pass

unpublished photo

The train platform at Gries am Brenner, taken by a German soldier through the window of a train bound to either Italy or Germany. The Brenner Pass is the gateway to the Alps, between Italy and Austria, and Hitler and Mussolini held three meetings there that ensured Italy's co-operation with the Axis powers.
