One should always be dressed to meet ones maker when traveling in a flying cuisinart.

I doubt Igor was dressing up in that picture. I suspect that's just how he dressed on a normal day at the office/shop. My dad was an engineer/executive in the 1950s-60s, and he always wore a suit and tie to the office. Always.

A determined look for sure. Looks very similar to a scene from that iconic WWII movie, The Great Escape. ;)

Good call. Your post made me think of these guys from the movie when they were out of the prison and trying to escape from Germany. I couldn't find a better pic, but you get the idea.

You are insightfully spot-on. That is a still from the very scene of which I was thinking. The similarity is all in the looks in their eyes! ;)

You nailed it. I didn't think of it, but once you said it, I knew the exact scene and people you were referencing. And, as an aside, what an awesome movie.
 
People were directly confronting fascism in Italy, Germany, and Spain in the two decades prior to the German invasion of Poland. Early antifascists but by no means the first. But probably the most stylish.
I think the German communists were among the early anti-fascists.

They lost their lead in the early innings and were crushed in the street by the SA brown shirts.
