Jan Novotný and his Photo Memories


At the end of September, we received several photos from Jan Novotný's relatives. It is a memorial album, which this forced labourer established after his return to his homeland. The images come from the vicinity of Mosjøen, from the Mo i Rana area in central Norway. This place was strategically important especially in terms of the construction of the Polarjernbanen polar railway, however, specifically Jan Novotný and his working group were sent on a "shift" especially to the local forests and the port. The album contains both joint pictures and profile pictures of individual friends of Jan Novotný, as well as photographs of the surrounding nature. Many thanks for lending this unique materials go to family.
