PoW Horace Greasley

Defiantly confronts Heinrich Himmler during an inspection of the camp he was confined in. Greasley also famously escaped from the camp and snuck back in more than 200 times to meet in secret with a local German girl he had fallen in love with.

  1. Very powerful photo indeed, but it’s not of Horace Greasley. The defiant man is actually an unidentified Russian POW. He is wearing a ‘pilotka’ side cap, and the photo was taken at a POW camp in Minsk.
