I thought I would share some of these photos again, I posted these years ago but I had them in Photobucket and arfcom eats photobucket bandwidth like candy.

Anyways these are photos taken by the father of a family friend. He was there when dachau was liberated and he took photos throughout the war, his daughter told me he was in some sort of recon, and by the literal stacks and stacks of negatives I have of his, I believe her. I still have not had the time to go through and preserve all of his negatives and prints, I may donate them to a museum one day for better keeping.

Anyways I doubt many people have ever seen these photos, they are just a slice of what I scanned years ago, most of not all of these are after the war. But he has photos of combat and nazi officials that committed suicide in their office with their family and dachau. They are horrible photos, and sadly he took his own life years after the war, the things he saw tore him up inside.

here he is









there was a funny note with this photo, I don't have it in front of me but it was in regards to the Air Force coming through and finally giving them "air conditioning"





I always found this photo striking



















I wish there was a way to find this kid today








more added

I was wondering how they managed to get a B17 under the Eiffel Tower!

Or how they got it out.

Thanks for posting those pics, those were neat to see. Especially the B-17 under the Eiffel Tower. It's hard to tell from the pic, but it doesn't look like it has a chin turret. Might be an F model.

As for the kid, what pictures were taken around that picture? Any that might help identify the area where the picture was taken? A more approximate date?
Time to place a call for some of our German Arfcommers, and enlist their help. If you could find out where it was taken, I'd lay odds that he could be found, or find out who he was.

Here's a list of media sites in Germany. Some have English website versions, others don't. Kidon Media Links If you could find out where the picture was taken, a nearby media outlet could probably be located, and the story and pic sent along to them. If they post/print it, you might get lucky and have somebody recognize him.

I think that photo was taken in france, its hard to pin point a year and place with these negatives, most were in a box scattered and loose. A lot are badly damaged too from water and time.

when I go home tonight I'll see what else I can dig up

It'll be totally worth it if you do.

It's nice to see photos taken during that era by a guy who knew what he was doing with a camera. Most times the snapshots Ive seen are often hard to see whats in the pic.

there are a lot of good quality photos, but sadly most are very damaged by poor storage. If I had the time I could rebuild a lot of them in photoshop and at lest restore them digitally (I'm a photographer)

Two crew members parachuted out, but had their heads lopped off by the Japanese sword.

Looks like it was in the south on a dirt road for a few years.

The fourth photo is Hitler's mountain home, the Berghof. For whatever reason, the US Air Force decided to bomb the shit out of the Berghof and surrounding complex in the last few days of the war. The only major personality that was there was Goering and since everyone hid out in the massive tunnel complex under the area, I don't think there were even any casualties. It was war so it was inevitable to be bombed, but it would have been an awesome site to preserve for after the war.

at first I thought it was a B-17, but it was sitting too high

now that I get a closer look, it is a B-17, so it must be sitting on an elevated surface or something..

I'm subscribed for more. Thank you so much for sharing. I also have some original WWII photos taken by a man in a medical unit, who duplicated the photos for GI's to buy and trade for. I can't remember the photographer's name, but I'll add it when it comes to me.
I’m sure a lot of people on their deathbed are going to lay there and think, “Man, I sure wish I had spent more time playing on my phone while life was going on around me.”

I wonder if this guy was issued more than one bullet?





Also, my favorite WTF WWII pic.

The B-17 in the background is in the markings of 96th Bomb Group, 8th AF. And they look to be B-17F's due to no chin turret. Also looks like a P-51 in there too.
