      The baby is Hessy Levinson who was entered into an Aryan Baby contest by the photographer who took the picture because he wanted to make the Nazis look ridiculous. Had the authorities known, the whole family including the angelic child might have died.

      The soldier is Werner Goldberg, who didn’t know at the time that he was half Jewish through his father who had converted many years before. He was later expelled from the Wehrmacht but survived the war and got his father out of a Gestapo prison.
