        [Photos]: Prisoners in German POW Camp. Christmas 1944

      1944. Five black and white gelatin silver photographs. Each image is 6" x 4.25". Wear or small chips in the corners not visibly affecting the images, very good. "POW Camp" written in ink on the verso of four of the images, the remaining image has "Officer Quarters" in the same hand on its verso. The images are all of the same group of POWs, both British and American, in their ramshackle barracks in a German POW camp. Two of the images are group shots of the men, in widely varied uniforms, and with several in silly costumes (French waiters, a Beefeater). Another shows prisoners playing a guitar and harmonicas, as other prisoners dance together, a fourth shows a man in a kilt playing percussion on a bottle accompanied by the guitarist, and the final image is of a man in a flannel robe wearing a Santa hat and a white wig handing another prisoner an American Red Cross Prisoner of War Food Package. In two of the images there is a sign reading "Merry Christmas 1944" (although there is a light penciled mark on the verso of one that reads "Xmas 43 Howe," but it seems likely they were all taken at the same time). The men are from both the army and navy, and are wearing several different uniforms: British, American, and possibly Australian, and French. Each man has a number affixed to the upper right of his uniform blouse. A few bottles, possibly of beer, are in evidence. Compelling images of men imprisoned during WWII. .

        Photo Album and Collection of Related Photographs and Items Belonging to Japanese-American WWII Soldier Richard Ohashi

      V.p., ca. 1944-1946. Photo album of a member of the 442nd Infantry Regiment, notable during WW2 for being one of the most decorated units of its size and comprised almost entirely of Americans of Japanese descent at a time when most "Nisei" were held in internment camps. The present collection chronicles the wartime experiences of Richard B. Ohashi (1925-2015), of Cheyenne, Wisconsin, member of the 3rd Battalion, Company K. Enlistment records indicate that Ohashi entered service in August, 1944, with the majority of the present photographs taken from 1945 to early 1946. With the exception, perhaps, of one destroyed German tank, none of the present images depict the grueling combat for which the Regiment was so highly decorated. Explaining why there is so little photographic documentation of the 442nd, Susumu Ito, another member of the Regiment, known for his prolific wartime photography, explained that "We had orders not to have cameras" (Popular Photography Magazine, August 21, 2015). As a result, most of the photographs appear to have been taken during periods of rest, predominantly featuring fellow soldiers, both Nisei and white, the former most likely all from a single camp, many of them inscribed by the subject. Perhaps the most moving among them reads "Mio carissimo--Bambino--Gee it's been swell knowing you. If you ever forget the war just look at this picture and you'll remember how gruesome it was." This may have been written with tongue-in-cheek, however, as the photograph depicts the presumed author of the note smiling broadly. A number of photographs depict geographical signage (mostly in Italy, with snapshots of the leaning tower of Pisa given an page in the album), and one sign advertises the American Red Cross "Go for Broke" Club (official slogan of the 442nd). Of the 152 photographs included in the collection, approximately 50 are taken of Ohashi's large family (according to his obituary he had 12 brothers and sisters), presumably taken in his hometown Cheyenne either during or shortly after the war. Oblong octavo photo album (15x22cm.); full green gilt-tooled morocco, upper cover lettered in gilt "Richard Ohashi / CK 442 Inf. / Italia," gilt-ruled spine in 5 compartments; [36] leaves containing 91 mounted and pasted-in photographs (83 snapshots, eight enlargements) and four commercial photographic postcards. 61 additional loose photographs (various sizes; seven in color) and 13 service medals, pins, and patches. Album boards a bit bowed and rubbed, extremities slightly faded, else Very Good or better overall.
