German soldiers pause for a seemingly leisurely rest during the invasion of Poland. They stand beneath a road sign in the north of Poland in the Polish Corridor, which divided the bulk of Germany from the German province of East Prussia and provided Poland with access to the Baltic Sea. Near Nowa Karczma, Kościerzyna County, Pomerelia (now, Pomeranian Voivodeship), Poland. September 1939.
