SS soldiers searching a village on Eastern Front, two of them armed with Erma EMP-35's. For some reason civilian carries a box with ammo belt for Maxin MG. USSR, 1941.
On a next photo (the most famous) you see him dead.

Oh, you're right I've never connected this two photos, but now that I double checked I noticed that ammo box near the corpse. Tbh that photo looks really grim, there's nothing that 100% gives away what's gonna happen but something in this scene makes it look that it's gonna be bad...

Did they find them with a cache of weapons for partisans?

Polish sailors guarding officers from surrendered U-249, May 1945. Both sailors armed with Lanchester sub-machine guns, note the mag pouches for insanely long 50 round magazines.


And regardind the photo oddysey of a man in white hat:

Spoiler

That's probably the last photo of him alive

Judging by that last photo, the German soldier behind/left is shouldering his gun.  Likely told him to pick the things up and start walking back to town (to keep things calm and orderly), and shot him along the way.
