Subject: RE: Warner Kaserne dp camp photos
Thank you for sharing these. This was a massive place with thousands of people living there after the war. This was not a good place, lots of horror stories I’m sure.
But looking at the photos, no matter where the Ukrainians went, hardships or not, they blossomed like a flower with their religious beliefs and traditions.
No matter where you look, you just see it. Daria firstname.lastname@example.org
July 31, 2020 Dear Ms. Kaczmar,
I am writing about post-WWII forced repatriation to the USSR and ran across your site in connection with the protest against a visit of a Soviet repatriation officer to Freimann camp (Warner Kaserne) in Munich in 1948. You have on your site a number of photographs from Dorothy Tibble's album relating to the attack on the Soviet repatriation officer and his car during the visit. I would like to use a couple of those photos in my text and wonder if I could trouble you for some high-resolution images.
Taking this request one step further, I wonder if you would be interested in eventually placing what must be a very rich trove of material on DPs you have collected at the Hoover Institution Archives? We already have significant material on DP camps in various collections, including a good deal on Latvian DPs and the Estonian camp at Geislingen:
Please stay healthy and keep up the fantastic work you are doing on your site!
