Talk at the St Bride Foundation: The Brunswick Prison Camp Map Printers

‘The Brunswick Prison Camp Map Printers’ is the little-known story of how a clandestine press was made and run by a group of industrious men in a German prisoner of war camp (Oflag-79) in order to mass produce escape maps, towards the end of the second world war.

The talk, at the St Bride Foundation on 3 December at 7.00 pm, will be given by: Mark Evans, artist and son of Brunswick Prison Camp map printer, Philip Radcliffe-Evans; and Ken Burnley, compositor and letterpress printer.

For further information see the event page on the St Bride Foundation website.
