I cannot wrap my brain around the use of M1s in this picture.
[Image shows soldiers forming a line blocking off a street. Facing down the street, holding rifles in their right hand near the end of the barrel, with bayonets on their rifles, the stock of the rifles resting on the ground. There are more soldiers behind them stood in a much less organized fashion, also holding rifles. There are two jeeps behind the soldiers and one large truck. If the soldiers where not there the street would look very ordinary, with a fire hydrant on the sidewalk, and shops lining the street.]

When I scrolled through this morning, this image appeared right on top of an image of Nazi’s blocking Jews from the University of Vienna in 1939. So much to unpack.
