A talk given by Mark Radcliffe-Evans, son of Brunswick Prison Camp Map Printer Philip Radcliffe-Evans (& volunteer at the David Parr House). The Brunswick Prison Camp Map Printers is a little known story of how a clandestine press was made and run in German prisoner of war camp Oflag-79 in order to mass produce escape maps towards the end of the war 1944-1945.

From Mark Radcliffe-Evans’ knowledge of his father’s experience and from a collection of documents including the original maps, the illustrated talk will cover the background, context, press and process and the circumstances in which the maps were produced in secret, to scale and printed in 3 and 4 colours.
