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. With Mark Evans’ knowledge of his father’s experiences as a printer in the camp and Ken Burnley’s life in printing, together they will bring this incredible story to life and shed light on the background, context and the circumstances in how these maps – all to scale and printed in three or four colours – were produced in secret, including the technicalities of their hand-made press, making of inks and printing.
