44th Armored Infantry at Oberdorla

One very touching photo which shows soldiers of the 6th Armored Division is the one in which infantry men of the 44th Armored Infantry Battalion, while crossing the street, pass the body of Robert Winn who was just killed by a sniper. This took place on April 4 1945 in Oberdorla Germany.
 
What is interesting is that street corner in Oberdorla where the above happened  hardly changed in the past 70 years.
Google Maps has a Photo Sphere (360 panorama) of the street: Photo Sphere Sperlingsberg Oberdorla

This inspired  Tumblr user georgy-konstantinovich-zhukov to create a impressive Then and Now comparison:
