Zwischen Front und Heimat - Bahnbetrieb aus Leidenschaft / Helmut Griebl
It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words.
This is especially true for private photography from turbulent times, especially in war, in which the public image of things is directed by censorship, propaganda and stagings. The very personal view of eyewitnesses often falls into the background or forgotten in time - if it was not recorded for posterity.
In the Second World War, the soldiers of the Wehrmacht often came with cheap AGFA miniature cameras in the field, with which they could document their everyday lives.
"Zwischen Front und Heimat" documents these unfiltered snapshots from the soldier's life. The focus of consideration and the cameras is the railway as an indispensable means of transport of the Second World War.
For decades, the author has compiled, meticulously analyzed and provided insightful annotations for countless war memoir albums, film rolls and picture plates.
