Eastern Front In The Lens Of The Invader – Part 1
Once again, we go back to the Eastern Front. We’ve gathered another very rare collection of photographs, but this time taken by German soldier, Franz Grёsser. He was born in 1911 in the small town of Bad Wörishofen, and attended a private school where he became interested in photography. His uncle had a photo shop in St. Moritz, Switzerland, and taught the young Franz the mastery of photography. With a camera in hand, he traveled around the world – from Asia to America. During World War II, Franz ended in Belgorod region, Ukraine, where he took an opportunity to capture occupied Eastern Front in the lens of the invader. Sadly, he was captured in 1944 in Novorossiysk and died there. Check out the first part of his photographs taken in 1942.
