The mystery of the Nazi album

All that was known about the anonymous photo album Nazi photographer - this is just what you can see from its 214 photos. It is worth noting that the pictures were good opportunities: in one month, he photographed the Russian and Jewish prisoners in another - there was only a few meters from Adolf Hitler. He was on the Eastern front, working for the Nazi propaganda campaign, and also pictures of a pretty woman, who was special for him.

Some online resources, and German newspapers published several photos and appealed to the public to help solve the mystery of the Nazi photographer. Several days later, the newspaper received a letter from a certain Harriet Sharnberg from Germany, which gave some answers.

It turned out that the photographer's name was Franz Krieger, he was born in the Austrian city of Salzburg, he survived the war and lived until 1993. All that we know that one special woman was Frida Krieger and his wife. She died November 17, 1944, along with their two-year daughter Heidrun, when the US Air Force began bombing Salzburg.
