OMG !
At 3989, fourth down there is the plackart showing a butt, with the comment "AM " arcsch" DER WELT
Any idea of where this comes from in Russia during that campaign (most likely winter 1943) ?

Incredible commentary by participants in that conflict

I somehow do not think the modern electronic dictionary terms don't fully apply to the illustration in this case.
"am Arsch der Welt"

- at the back of beyond
- in the boondocks
- out in the sticks
- in the back of beyond
- beyond the Black Stump
- the arse end of nowhere
- where the crows fly backwards

Need to focus more on what the "bottom" drawing...in my interpretation: "The Ass end of the World" :lol:
I think you are correct, it must have been Russia :D

Best I can translate (then interpret) the warning sign:

Attention Danger of (enemy) aircraft!

Clear the sky, bright in the valley:
Car lights by no means! (Keep lights off)

Dark sky, dark night:
Headlights covered! (Blackout Drive only)

Anyone who doesn't obey it is certain:
gets mercilessly arrested!
