My grandfather was a Polish POW during the entirety of WW2. He passed away over 10 years ago but I have always been fascinated by his stories and experiences during wartime.
Recently my grandmother passed away who’s life was also greatly impacted by the war. I never got to hear much from them directly but instead from my family. I don’t have much right now and am working on getting more pictures/recounts of their experiences to share here.
In the meantime I will share a photo that was recently found after missing for 10 years of him as a POW. The photo was either taken in Poland or Germany though we do not know for sure. He was a blacksmith and since he knew a valuable trade was sent to Germany to work and treated better than other POW’s. This is likely the reason for there being a photo of him in the first place as well as him being dressed in nicer clothing.
I hope to share alot more in the future. I hope you all find this interesting and would like to see more.
Bonus: another photo
