I'm looking for any details about the "Sample Collection" the German established in Paris-Nanterre ,displaying allied captured planes.
Doaes someone have references of Bundesarchiv photos regarding that museum ?
My main interest is photos about two B-17s displayed : the forward section of # 42-30050 (100th BG) and the rear one of # 42-30037 (384th BG).
Hans-Heiri Stapfer , author of "Strangers in a Strange Land" did not answer my letters.

Thank you ,
Laurent.

What is it that you would like to know about the two captured B-17s that you mention as displayed at Nanterre?

Hello Anton,
I'm looking for pictures of both planes in that museum .
Those from H.H.Stapfer's book come from Bundesarchiv but quality is not good. Maybe someone has ref. of better pictures , I'll need them for my book . I'm writing several WW2 stories and I know everything about these two B-17s (crews , crash-sites...).

Laurent.

Again a copyright question....

Hello,

I have the following question regarding copyright:

Assume that someone owns an original WWII photo and sends me a scan that he allows me to use in a book. If he then sells the WWII photo can I still publish it or do I run into problems? Unfortunately, I do not know the name of the new owner.

Thanks,
Roger Gaemperle

hello,

very interesting discussion. And what to think about those so expensive fees claimed by ECPA and Bundesarchives if you want to publish a photo coming from their archives?

regards

Phil

It is my understanding that Allies removed any copyrights for things created by III Reich, so the stuff offered by ECPA and BAMA is not copyrighted. I am wondering if well known Hugo Jaeger collection falls under this category, he was a war correspondent doing his job for German officials.
BAMA/ECPA high fees is one thing but another is access to the collections which IMHO qualifies for Strasbourg court.
