Off topic: Europe, October 1941

Military Museum, Belgrade, Serbia

This is the map that was etched in my memory when I visited the museum years ago.  In October 1941, the only liberated part of Nazi occupied continental Europe was on the territory of former Yugoslavia, on the map in red. 

The German attack on Yugoslavia on April 6, 1941 delayed the German attack on the Soviet Union by 6 weeks.
