The first picture reference Barbarossa, a famous Nazi operation during WWII. http://www.history.com/topics/world-war-ii/operation-Barbarossa
On June 22, 1941, Adolf Hitler launched his armies eastward in a massive invasion of the Soviet Union: three great army groups with over three million German soldiers, 150 divisions, and three thousand tanks smashed across the frontier into Soviet territory. The invasion covered a front from the North Cape to the Black Sea, a distance of two thousand miles. By this point German combat effectiveness had reached its apogee; in training, doctrine, and fighting ability, the forces invading Russia represented the finest army to fight in the twentieth century. Barbarossa was the crucial turning point in World War II, for its failure forced Nazi Germany to fight a two-front war against a coalition possessing immensely superior resources.
The second photo is of Raphael’s Portrait of A Young Man. According to Wikipedia, this painting wasstolen by the Nazis from Poland. Many historians regard it as the most important painting missing since World War II.
