Here is a series of photographs shot during World War Two in Germany and sent to me by a friend from the USA probably 10 or 12 years ago, so please don’t ask me who it was because I simply don’t remember. I had promised to make these photos available online for anyone who can use them because this is what the owner of these ‘liberated’ photos asked me to do. You can copy them if you want but if you use them please credit EUCMH because I put them online in HD and this takes a lot of places.

(Note: for professional use, I do also own these images in tiff version)

Rothenburg ob der Tauber is a town in the district of Ansbach of Mittelfranken (Middle Franconia), the Franconia region of Bavaria, Germany. It is well known for its well-preserved medieval old town, a destination for tourists from around the world. It is part of the popular Romantic Road through southern Germany. Today it is one of only three towns in Germany that still have completely intact city walls, the other two being Nördlingen and Dinkelsbühl, both also in Bavaria. Rothenburg was a free imperial city from the late Middle Ages to 1803. In 1884 Johann Friedrich (von) Hessing (1838–1918) built Wildbad Rothenburg o.d.T. 1884–1903.
