ID Photos

One part of the 2013 Lagerstadt Exhibition in Wolfsberg consists of a series of photographs of individual POWs with their POW number. These photos are a batch numbered from 1 to 5000 which are held at the Museum of Natural History in Vienna. The photos were probably taken in the latter part of 1941 when POWs from Greece and Crete arrived in Wolfsberg after the nightmare train journey in cattle trucks through Yugoslavia. The photos clearly show the strain and exhaustion of the POWs.

Dr Margit Berner (Email: at the museum has kindly offered to scan any particular image from the set. If you wish to contact Margit, then bear three things in mind:

1. The archive of photos does not include the names of the POWs and so you must have the POW number.

2. The ID numbers run from 1 to 5000. Any POW whose number is outside that range is not included.

3. There was some duplication of POW numbers. This series of 5000 seems to relate to those POWs who were transferred directly to Stalag 18A from Greece in 1941, rather than those who were transferred from another Stalag, such as Stalag 18D or 18B.
