Rolls of film discovered on top of a trash can in south-eastern France in 1999 by teenager Olivier Rempher, were later verified by his photographer father, Alain Rempher, to be authentic photographs taken in and around Oflag VII-A Murnau.
This German prisoner-of-war camp for Polish Army officers during World War II was located near the Bavarian town of Murnau am Staffelsee at the foot of the Alps.
These unexpected images include drama and puppetry in the Offizerslager, the camp’s liberation by the US 12th Armoured Division in April 1945 and a bombed-out Munich.
The photos will be displayed from June 2-12 in the Lower Gallery, Polish Heritage Trust Museum, 125 Elliot St, Howick.
Open hours: Tuesday-Friday 10am-4pm & Sunday 12pm-5pm.
Casual museum entry is by donation and small groups by prior arrangement. Off-street parking and wheelchair friendly.
