Children and anti-aircraft guns 1945, original photo size: 5680×4200, photographer: unknown, rights: © Historiathek / Stephan Bleek

The image of children playing with an anti-aircraft gun in 1945 is a poignant representation of the immediate post-World War II era. This scene depicts children in Berlin, where remnants of the war, such as abandoned military equipment, were common. The stark contrast between the innocence of childhood and the destructive power of wartime machinery encapsulates the surreal and often grim reality faced by those living in war-torn regions during and after the conflict.

Children interacting with such machinery reflects the normalization of war’s presence in their lives, illustrating how deeply the war permeated everyday existence. Additionally, these images can serve as historical reminders of the impact of war on civilians, especially the younger generation, and the long-term psychological and social effects that arise from growing up amidst such destruction.
