Looking for Mr. Photographer

James Barron and David W. Dunlap, The New York Times:

A few pages later were photographs of Hitler in a train station. As he framed the shot, the photographer was almost as close to the Führer as he had been to the Führer’s captives. The photographs were obviously taken during World War II. But who was the photographer? That was only one of the secrets the album had kept. He was Franz Krieger, who joined — and then quit — a Wehrmacht propaganda unit known as the Propagandakompanie.

Marvin J. Taylor, Director of the Fales Library and Special Collections, New York University:

The Germans have taken good care of the history of their photographers.
