During World War II, Oberfeldwebel (Sergeant) Rudolf Max Kuhnrich spent several months in Varna, Bulgaria, as part of a German marine company, ordered to train Bulgarian units for an eventual naval landing operation in Odessa, USSR. From this period an album with a huge amount of photos is preserved, copies of which have kindly been presented to the Naval Museum Varna by the son of Oberfeldwebel Rudolf Max Kuhnrich – Mr Rudolf Kuhnrich. In the paper the training activities performed in Varna but also other moments from the period the German company spent in Varna, as revealed by the photos, are presented and discussed.

All welcome- this seminar is free to attend but advance registration is required.
