Jan Kreysa from Horní Kamenice in the Plzeň region reacted promptly on the occasion of the opening of the exhibition in Pilsen, bringing his father's suitcase, photo album and labour card to the exhibition. His father was deployed in central Norway in the Mo i Rana area at Stahlman. Interestingly, Mr. Kreysa himself visited Norway several times and took his father there in the 1990s. They also visited places where he spent the war years. Dad also met an old Norwegian friend, with whom he corresponded quite a long time after the war.
We thank Mr. Kreys for providing materials for further research and for the opportunity to exhibit them at the Study and Research Library in Pilsen. They can be seen at the exhibition until the end of February 2022.
