Burgomaster of Niederlepte trying to negotiate surrender of Zerbst
The original wartime caption describes this picture as showing the Burgomaster of Niedalepte on his way to nearby Zerest to ask the commander of the garrison to surrender. Zerest is an alternative name for the town of Zerbst, just east of the Elbe near Magdeburg. Niedalepte has the rare honour of not producing a single result in Google but an examination of the map finds Niederlepte, a small village a couple of miles to the west.
