    Default Location of a POW Camp

    Hi Guys, I am trying to discover the location of a POW for German soldiers called "Camp Pasteur". It was a camp ran by the French Army around 1947. I have a photo album which belonged to a German soldier who was imprisoned there. From the pics, he seems to have had a decent life there.

    Cheers, Ade.

    This name is written on the back of several photos and it is all I have to go on; no place name or Camp number.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi Ade,

    Heres a list of POW camps in France in WW2...dont know if it helps on what you have already been given.

    The word for Pasteur has two meanings, first is French for Parish Priest of the Protestant Christian faith. The second is a surname and most famously refers to Louis Pasteur (1822–1895) was a French microbiologist and chemist.
