10 1/2” x 7 1/2” photo album with a cover of red woven clothe and bound with red rope and tassel. Inside are 24 brown pages filled (double-sided) with about 175 photos that range in size. Photos are black and white or sepia, besides the last three photos of a grave covered in flowers which are in color.
The first page contains six headshot photos which appear to be photos of this unnamed man as he progresses from toddler toward middle age. Few other photos portray his youth. The majority of photos document the period of World War II when this man was deployed to train and execute his duties as a Nazi German soldier. It is possible that the officer’s name is Georg Sammel as indicated by color photos on the last page of the album which display a grave covered in flowers.
Throughout the album this officer and his fellow compatriots are pictured in snapshots wearing Nazi regalia. Officers are seen parading proudly through the streets, conspiring in the barracks, and playing recreational sport. Other images are of men training, deploying weaponry (canons, tanks, and planes), traveling by train, using the loo, and standing beside damaged infrastructure.
About five photos appear to be missing, as indicated by empty spaces, glue, and corner tabs on page. About ten photos and blank real photo postcards are loose, detached, or at the back of the album.
The photo album cover is made of red woven clothe, and inside are brown pages. Most all of photos are glued to the page, while few are held with corner tabs. Condition is good.
