Dear Ms. Hinton,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the Records of the Office of the Judge Advocate General (Army) (Record Group 153) and located several War Crimes Case Files pertaining to Stalag Luft IV in the Stalag Name Index to the Series "Case Files, 1944-1949". There may be a photograph in one of these case files. If your father was a witness to any war crimes, the specific case would be listed under his name in the European Name Index to the Series "Case Files, 1944-1949" to these records. In addition, there is a file on Stalag Luft IV in the Persons and Places Dossier Files, 1945 - 1948. We also searched the National Archives Collection of Foreign Records Seized (Record Group 242) and located a series titled Translations of German Reports Concerning the Transfer of Allied Prisoners of War that may have more information about the camp. For access to these records, please contact the National Archives at College Park - Textual Reference (RDT2) via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
There are German photograph collections captured by the U.S. during and after WWII that are part of RG 242. These collections are in the custody of the National Archives at College Park - Still Pictures (RDSS). For access to these photographs, please contact RDSS via email at email@example.com.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
Thank you very much for your help!
