Dear Mr. Cizewski,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located Photographs of American Military Activities, ca. 1918 - ca. 1981 in the Records of the Office of the Chief Signal Officer (Record Group 111), Photographs of Military and Civilian Activities, 1939 - 1945 in the Records of the Office of War Information (Record Group 208), and Photographic Prints of U.S. and Soviet Military Personnel in the Soviet Union and Germany covering 3/25/1944 - 5/1945 in the Russian Ministry of Defense Archives Collection (Collection RMDA) that include photographs of U.S. and Soviet troops linking up at the Elbe River. These records are in the custody of the National Archives at College Park - Still Pictures (RDSS). To access these records please contact RDSS via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For more information about researching World War II military photographs at the National Archives, please see review Know Your Records: World War II Military Unit Photographs and Researching for Photographs of World War II Military Units & Crews.
You can also search the World War II Signal Corps photograph collection available through the U.S. Army Heritage and Education Center. The U.S. Army Center of Military History and its affiliated museums may also have relevant collections, as might Library of Congress Prints and Photographs Division, the National Museum of American History, the National World War II Museum, and the State Archive of the Russian Federation.
We hope this information is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
