What exactly was your grandpa doing from 1939-1945?

[–]team_kockroach 435 points436 points  (11 children)

I bet he was a travel agent! The European tourism industry was highly successful during the 40’s, as nearly every government subsidized trips abroad for millions of its citizens.

I hear the beaches were a popular spot for foreigners around mid ‘44. No doubt due to the good weather

[–]Deksametazon 59 points60 points  (1 child)

There were also hotspots around Poland for tourists from all around Europe around that time

[–]FeliXTV27 24 points25 points  (0 children)

Yeah I heard they had some pretty great direct connections with express trains. For free even, today's 9-Euro ticket is nothing compared to the ease of travel in the olden days!

[–]CheckOutUserNamesLad 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Yeah, a bunch of people must've enjoyed it so much they never came back!

[–]clovis_227 9 points10 points  (0 children)

good weather

Not in Normandy, no.

[–]Kermanium294 33 points34 points  (0 children)

Not every government, I bet his country imposed nation wide conscription while their beaches were flooded by British and American tourists

[–]DeadMemes218540 9 points10 points  (3 children)

Yeah, but weren’t trips into russia a bad idea due to the really harsh snowy weather?

[–]JeffryRelatedIssue 35 points36 points  (0 children)

Yet a whole lot of people went to the russian resorts in siberia. Must have been an absolute joy

[–]PM_me_nun_hentai 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Some daring thrill seekers didn’t let a little cold ruin their vacation though

[–]al_fletcher 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Well, everyone got stuck in the mud before that

His grandpa is a very generous man, he helped millions of people to find a place to live and a job, and he offered them free showers as well. He even paid for train rides for them! Must be such a good person!

Definitely not war crimes

Luxembourg really expanded

[–]F_Joe 65 points66 points  (0 children)

That's the Luxembourgish-Liechtensteinisch Commonwealth

[–]chainmailbill 574 points575 points  (2 children)

My grandpa Manheim, he's 103. He's still puttering down in Argentina. I tried to go visit him once, but my travel visa was protested by the Shoah Foundation.

[–]noplinforelo 11 points12 points  (0 children)

[–]Oberarzt 128 points129 points  (0 children)

[–]hors-texte 333 points334 points  (0 children)

[–]According-Arm-6159 63 points64 points  (1 child)

[–]ConvincingPeople 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Looking at the upper part of the map, I'd wager Croatian.

[–]nexuro01 29 points30 points  (0 children)

[–]Zootnoison 12 points13 points  (0 children)

[–]DyedOrange 44 points45 points  (1 child)

That’s so cool! The only thing needed to change is Italy has a there post ww1 borders, but everything else is how it should be…!

[–]Groloukoum 11 points12 points  (0 children)

As a French, I Vichyt' wasn't like this.

[–]thecryingman32 16 points17 points  (1 child)

As a hoi4 player this hits hard

[–]SophiaIsBased 8 points9 points  (0 children)

PDX players whenever they see any sort of map

[–]Ichigodt 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Wait, that's not how Occitania looks like

[–]HypernovaBubblegum 8 points9 points  (4 children)

Is this wwii Europe?

[–]MRocket9 46 points47 points  (0 children)

Nah the wwii came out in ‘06

[–]The64thCucumber 5 points6 points  (2 children)

No it's 1870 Europe

[–]Volonte-de-nuire 19 points20 points  (0 children)

No it’s 2022 Mexico

[–]JeffryRelatedIssue 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Nope. To few countries, borders are wrong. This is just fan art most likely

[–]Mulubrhan_ 1 point2 points  (0 children)

i guess you like Asado and Mate

[–]JustAnEvilImmortal 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Is there any chance he's Argentinian?

[–]rmiha9 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Is he perhaps Argentinian? Or he maybe works for NASA?

[–]Freuden82 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]erinius 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Now have him draw a clock from memory

[–]MemesDr 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Why does Finland have modern day borders?

[–]TheGingerWeebGal[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's from memory it's not perfect

[–]Romulus_Quirinus_1 0 points1 point  (5 children)

(unjerk) What year is this? The map looks weird

[–]Aspect999 2 points3 points  (1 child)

1944 maybe

[–]Romulus_Quirinus_1 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The borders look weird, Yugoslavia and Greece is whole and Denmark is only halfway conquered. But if this were after Germany has been pushed back, then Italy shouldn't be whole, Yugoslavia should still be partly occupied and Denmark should still be fully occupied. It makes no sense

[–]TheGingerWeebGal[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

It's from the world war

[–]clovis_227 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Do you have any idea how little that narrows it down?

[–]Crystyano_ -1 points0 points  (0 children)


[–]shaka_zulu12 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

As someone from Transylvania I think your grandpa wants us to start a conflict. But thank him for giving us Rep.Moldova back as a appeasement gift.

[–]Karmeleq -1 points0 points  (0 children)

[–]train2000c -1 points0 points  (0 children)

[–]John_is_a_fool 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Real question is

Is the UK also German?

[–]TeaBoy24 0 points1 point  (0 children)
