Hope everyone is well
I have attached some old photos which my grandfather took.
Maybe they are of interest to somebody and maybe somebody will know some details about them. I am particulary interested if anybody knows anything about this one, does anybody recognise the uniform? There is also some writing on the back, maybe someone can understand Polish and it would give us a clue to what is happening in the photo.
Then there is this one, there is also some writing on the back. The girl in the photo is my great auntie Zofia. I have a feeling that this may have been taken whist she was n a forced labour camp in Koenisberg. I only think this because of the bunk beds and the date ehich says 1943. I could be wrong though!
The next one I am not sure if it has anything to do with Wojtek at all I just found it kind of funny that they were all picture with obviously somebody dressed as a bear. The young lady on the right is my great auntie Zofia again, the same as in the photos above.
The next one maybe was taken when my grandfather was in a forced labour camp. I only say this as my grandmother does not recognise any of the other people in the photo as his friends when he came to England and I also notice there is a shovel on the left hand side of the photo. My grandfather is the man in the white shirt stood up on the right hand side.
Finally, my grandmother tells me she remembers my grandfather telling her that this photo was taken in Poland and it is of a group of children whom the germans had rounded up to be taken by to Germany to be raised as the perfect aryan children.
I hope that maybe these photos are of interest to some and maybe somebody can paint a bit of a picture of what was happening in them.
