Herbie had a photo album and a record of the march from the camp

Names and addresses found written in the book are here

If you can add any information or names to the content here please contact me

I have found a very helpful website to translate place names between
what they were in Czech and what the Germans called them here

The points on the map are the ones I can identify from the names in the book,
there may be some which are incorrect and many I have yet to identify,
