This post card photo shows the SS Warner Kaserne building in Munich, Germany. This building was originally constructed to be the headquarters of Hitler’s guard regiment but ended up as a replacement station for the artillery units on the Eastern front. This building was huge and very well protected from bombings. War ended and building was deserted; in 1945 it was taken over by UNESCO org. to be maintained as a temporary home for the DP's. When Winzer was disbanded, this is where we were all sent to (in 1948) prior to leaving Germany to different parts of the world.

I note with interest the few Ukrainian photos from the Munich Freimann Warner Kaserne that you have kindly posted online.
I wondered whether there might be any photographs of art exhibitions or artists at the same DP camp among the packet of photos that these were taken from? I'm researching a Lithuanian sculptor, Vincas Jomantas, who lived at Munich Friemann c. 1945-48.
Any assistance would be much appreciated.

We lived in Warner Kaserne, Munich from 1947 to 1951 before coming to the US.
Readers tell me about your experiences there. I am writing a book to share with my kids and grandkids. Alex
