About this site & contact information

It is hoped that making this original material available will assist historians, researchers, collectors and anyone with an interest in discovering more of the everyday reality throughout this period in history. "They are the unwritten history books of that war, uncompromising in their secret truths. They are photographic time capsules of everyday people in their triumphs and personal disasters, and every photo enhances one's knowledge and wisdom on the subject of WWII if the time is taken to imagine the moment which surrounds each shot. There were few victors in that war." Bill Bruegman.
