File:German prisoners SS-Panzerdivision Totenkopf.jpg

English: German soldiers of the Waffen SS, taken prisoner in Normandy, 1944.

ATTENTION: the images name is wrong! The prisoners are members of the 12th SS Panzer Division Hitlerjugend NOT the 3rd SS-Panzerdivision Totenkopf! The Totenkopf division was never employed on the Western Front! Also the source of the image does not mention the soldiers as being members of the Totenkopf division, it only mentions that the soldiers wear "side caps with the Totenkopf."!
