But life on Somes Island also required that work be done. This beautifully captured and moody photo, probably taken by Gregor Riethmaier, shows a work detail collecting and cutting up firewood. Fritz squats at the front. Fritz’ combative personality meant that he sometimes ran foul of the camp management.
Others in the photo (left-to-right) are: Christof Alberts; unknown guard; Rudolf Berking, Werner Jahnke; Max Grapengiesser; Fritz Stunzner Jnr; Albert Wetzell; Karl Schmidt; unknown guard.
