Images of Stalag Luft I


Compiled By: James H. Culbert
Last Updated: 17 Apr 2014

The following links provide access to images of Stalag Luft I and the immediate surroundings of Barth, Pommerania, Germany.  Most of these photos were taken by my father, Walter M. "Dick" Culbert, following liberation of his P.O.W. camp by the Russians in early May, 1945. My father acquired a German camera and took these photos while on and off duty from the time of liberation and continued service as Military Police through his travel in France before leaving for the U.S.
