Photos that are part of a larger grouping of Rolf Krohn of U 532.

Photos are taken in POW Camp 18 in 1946 Featherstone Park, England.

.......a special camp so to say.

Taken from the internet :

Location: Haltwhistle, Northumberland

Opened: 1944

Closed: Summer 1948

History

"Camp 18", bordering the South Tyne river and stretching across a mile of Featherstone Park, was constructed in 1944 to accommodate US personnel prior to their departure to Normandy for the Invasion of France. Emptied of Americans, the camp was for several months used to hold Italian prisoners of war, but in 1945 it was converted to hold "Black Nazis"; the most fervent believers in Hitler's Germany, who would only be repatriated after a thorough course of denazification. It was not particular to any one section of the Reich; Wehrmacht officers, captured U-Boatmen, Luftwaffe pilots, bureaucrats, diplomats and ambassadors were all represented. The most senior resident was General Ferdinand Heim, a veteran of Stalingrad and chief of staff to the Sixth Army, captured in 1944 when his garrison defending Boulogne surrendered. Consisting of some 200 huts in four compounds, Camp 18 was one of the largest officer POW camps in Britain, at one time housing 4,000 officers and 600 orderlies.

Despite the obvious challenge of making the most hardline Nazis into good citizens fit for the new Germany, the operation was an enormous success, so much so that in 1947 the barbed wire fencing around the camp was removed. It was said that the Featherstone more resembled a university campus than a POW camp; prisoners would be sent out to work on local farms during the day, but at night they would study, and received lectures from Durham, Newcastle, even some Oxford academics. It was a system that quickly prepared these men for flourishing careers in the new Germany, some even went on to play a political role in its foundation.

The camp had its own chapel, theatre, library, medical centre, even a bakery and sewerage system. It had a newspaper; Die Zeit am Tyne, printed in Hexham, and, making use of the great pool of talent in the camp, it boasted three orchestras and its own puppet theate, which entertained various audiences across Northern England.

And thank you Gerdan for your help with the names !

Gerd Strauch, Willi Schmisler, Hans Taubert, Gerhard Krüger, Karl Heinz Oelen/Oehler ?, Hans Schroeder, Hansj.(ürgen) Beeck, Hartmut Kriller ?, Martin Kärfrech (?), Heinz Küper, Rolf Krohn.

Rolf Krohn (on the first row, third one - from right to left.)


Fußball A gegen B ( 4 : 2 )
As Rolf's POW number shows Gefangenennummer B.105680 (M)., and the B stands for Compound B..........Rolf's team did lose the soccer match that day.
