Over many years we have acquired several complete photograph albums and purchased many hundred photos and negatives at flea markets throughout Germany and Poland. All were either photographed or compiled by German soldiers during World War Two. As viewing these images allows access to otherwise unknown or less-known aspects of the 1939 - 1945 war in Europe we have put some of these online for others to see. These pictures were taken by regular German soldiers of military and civilian subjects in Germany, Poland, and Russia during the Second World War. This page currently contains more than forty images. New pictures are scanned and uploaded to this website as time permits, so please bookmark this webpage and come back soon. Click on the arrow buttons to see a different picture in the gallery.
The images above are a tiny fraction of those in our collection. High quality unwatermarked scans of our entire collection of Third Reich era personal photographs are available for purchase and use by historians, researchers, and publishers. Please contact us with your exact requirements or for details and prices.
