Fascists discover partisans hiding in a haystack


Three soldiers have found two partisans hiding in a haystack. One partisan has both his cheeks pierced by the bayonet of one of the soldiers and in the background, the other partisan has his arms in the air and a solider is pointing a rifle with a bayonet at him.
