We taped a 30 minute show today on my father's album of photos he took during World War II. He was a photographer on reconnaissance aircraft in the European Theater, and, as such, had a camera with him at all times. In the album are photos of his trek across northern France & into Germany with Patton's Third Army. Some of the photos he has in the album are ones he did not take, but apparently traded other camera men for--photos at Lake Como of the mutilated bodies of Benito Mussolini and his mistress, Claretta Petacci, for instance. There are other disturbing images, as well, including of Buchenwald & Ohrdruf concentration camps on the day they were liberated.
