The family believe that in the photograph above are: Ernst Levi, Werner Gembicki, Herbert Mosheim

Additional information from the family: Ernst Levi spent some time in Vlotho prior to Kitchener Camp although we don’t have details. He and his wife Kate settled in England after the war. I believe he worked at the Mosheim paper factory, or with their animals, in order to have the experience he needed to get into Kitchener Camp. I met them at a gathering in Vlotho in 1988.  He and my dad looked very much alike.
