Miss Tibble writes: Block C - There are 3 other blocks of the same size: Adminstrative Block, Wash? houses, garages, etc.; over 700 rooms in all, with miles of corridors. In this picture, it looks really more ...?..It's a bleak barte horrible place ...typical German barracks. This Block was less bombed than Barracks A & B which we had to do a great deal of work in repairing.
Miss Tibble writes: Here is the main entrance. Entry for ? passengers, and park and camp police check-in, seen at left. Entrance for vehicles is in the centre and waiting place for bus passengers on right. The number shown in the left entrance pillar is the code relating to the blowing up of the Kaserne as soon as the US troops are ready to pull out of Germany.

This post card photo shows the SS Warner Kaserne building in Munich, Germany. This building was originally constructed to be the headquarters of Hitler’s guard regiment but ended up as a replacement station for the artillery units on the Eastern front. This building was huge and very well protected from bombings. War ended and building was deserted; in 1945 it was taken over by UNESCO org. to be maintained as a temporary home for the DP's. When Winzer was disbanded, this is where we were all sent to (in 1948) prior to leaving Germany to different parts of the world. Provided by Daria firstname.lastname@example.org

I note with interest the few Ukrainian photos from the Munich Freimann Warner Kaserne that you have kindly posted online.
I wondered whether there might be any photographs of art exhibitions or artists at the same DP camp among the packet of photos that these were taken from? I'm researching a Lithuanian sculptor, Vincas Jomantas, who lived at Munich Friemann c. 1945-48.
Any assistance would be much appreciated.
