FRAGMENTS | Zdenek Tmej

Zdenek Tmej, a renowned Czech photographer, gained widespread recognition for his remarkable photographs taken during the war. His talent was recognized early on when his work began appearing in the Czech Republican newspaper when he was just 16 years old.

From 1943 to 1944, Tmej served as a German translator at the Breslau labor camp in German-occupied Poland. It was during his time there that he captured poignant and intimate moments of the camp's prisoners.
