Hanged Spies

These very unpleasant photographs are of presumed spies hanged by the Austro-Hungarian forces in Galizia in the First World War.Two women hanged by these brave soldiers on suspicion of carrying activities of espionage. The caption makes humorous comments of the scene. What impresses me is how short is the woman on the left. What could she have done?
The certainly weren't Mata Haris

Curious method of dying by furniture removal. In the center there is a woman already dead and on her left a one legged man (!?!) looks interested at the proceedings.

One must accept that war is shit and humanity sucks!!!

Se puede concebir la mala suerte de haber nacido para caer en manos de tamaños trogloditas?

Holt Risse zu meinen Augen und zu Augenlidern. Ich wuchs durch den Krieg auf und sah schreckliche Sachen in den Kiew Vororten.

you really got it in a nutshell about war and humanity. a few years ago i went to an exhibition on lynching in america and it seems that people used to make up postcards of the lynchings that they attended. sent them to family with comments on the back. like it was sport.

then again, you can find more recent pictures showing similar things.

it is all rather disheartening...

Al pie de la primera foto dice algo como: "Qué 'placidez vienesa' parecía haber en Galitzia!"(hasta entonces), y luego aclara el motivo de las ejecuciones.

CREO QUE ES ALGO ASI COMO "CON LA TIPICA "CORDIALIDAD" O "GENTILEZA" VIENESA"

Sí, puede ser, pero "aussah" significa "parecía" o "aparentaba".
J... sintaxis teutona !!

"Supuestas espias", "sospechadas de espionaje".

"Gemütlichkeit" (lo confirmé)es "comodidad,placidez,tranquilidad"(hasta ese momento, aparentes). Y la línea de abajo dice "mujeres colgadas por PRESUNTO(angeblicher)espionaje". Mi traducción quizá no es demasiado buena pero creo que se le aproxima. En todo caso, pidámosle ayuda al Sr. Cilencio,que domina mejor el tema.
