365daysofhistory On September 19 1944, Eindhoven was still partying. The city had been liberated the previous day, and people lined the streets to welcome their liberators. But in the course of the afternoon, the mood changed. There were rumours the Germans were advancing from Nuenen and Helmond.

In the evening, German Luftwaffe planes appeared over the city. They bombed Eindhoven. They targeted the transit routes of the British army corps: Aalsterweg, Stratumsedijk, Stratumseind, Rechtestraat, Wal, Emmasingel, Hertogstraat and the surrounding area. The British vehicles had nowhere to go. Loaded with ammunition and fuel, they exploded. There were fires everywhere. The number of casualties among civilians was enormous. 41 people died on the Biesterweg, when the shelter they were in took a direct hit. In total, 227 people died on September 19.

  •   davegtig60 Omg stop it folks. I'm german, a proud german! But its a fact that germany started the war. And it's another fact that there were war crimes on both sides. It's history and we can't change it. 11h
  •   derwehrmachtundss I stick to your answer as well. No side was innocent. @jordan_cornelison 11h
  •   h_schluie I'd like to see more of the German home front. Very interesting seeing that aspect of the war 10h
  •   mister_brister9 I'd like to see pictures like this more, often we only see the Allied perceptions of the evils of the enemy. Rarely do I see pictures of german, more specifically, S.S, compassion. 9h
  •   cataaraya1 oh propaganda would be cool too :) 9h
  •   fallout_lore_ @cataaraya1 I agree. Propaganda would be pretty cool to see. On all fronts. Italian, German, British, Japanese, American. 8h
  •   fallout_lore_ And soviet. I can't believe I forgot that. 8h
  •   jason95937 The Axis compassion is rarely seen, it would be good for everyone to see. 4h
