    Max Webb photograph collection

    Please select from the following options:


    The collection primariy consists of original photographs and copy-prints of the Münchberg displaced persons camp. The bulk of the photographs depict a funeral and re-interment ceremony in 1946 for women who perished between the Helmbrechts subcamp of Flossenbürg and Münchberg on the death march that originated from the Schlesiersee subcamp of Gross-Rosen in January 1945 and terminated in Volary (Volary, Czech Republic) in May 1945. They were initially buried by area farmers in or near Münchberg. The ceremony was attended by DP camp refugees, American military service members, and members of the community from Münchberg. Other photographs depict Holocaust-era scenes in Łódź, and likely other parts of Poland.
    inclusive:  circa 1942-1946
