    Hello my name is Lars, currently living in Sweden.
    I have WW2 history from both sides, my father (deceased 2014), was a teen in Denmark during the war and distributed illegal leaflets for his father who is in the Danish resistance movement.
    He joined the Danish army after the war as an engineer. He recalled going to Hamburg around 1950 seeing much of the city still destroyed. Later he was sent to Greenland to work with the Americans on the DEW line.

    My mother is German as was born during the war. Her father was sent to the east and barely survived several years in a prison camp in Murmansk, Russia. He died in 1990 and to his death refused to speak about it.
    Her family relocated from the Mosel area to the Harz mountains in what would later become East Germany. She made it out one week before the wall was built. She is 81 years old now and still has vivid memories of it all.

    I have joined as I have inherited several albums with photos, mainly from the German invasion of France 1940 that I will post here in the hope they will be of interest and that someone will be able to identify the locations.

    Best regards, Lars
