A Wardrobe of Trophies

This is a rather dark narrative transcript for a deleted scene from the film Der Untergang, or Downfall ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fsnAi1rNBvA ). Like a majority of historical films, it isn't 100% accurate, prompting my use of the historical fiction tag. Something about the medic's request to see the dresses stuck with me, and I decided to write. Two sentences turned into a short story with some sort of a theme, though admittedly communicated somewhat loosely. I suppose I could have developed a segment not seen in the deleted scene, but I'd rather toil with my own story idea in the works than worry so much about this. Oddly enough, that story will deal with death as well, but not in a war setting.
