The Coos County Democrat featured a small reunion that took place recently at a WW2 POW camp located in Stark, NH.

According to the article:

two former camp workers and one German ex-prisoner-of-war returned to the site to reflect on their time spent in Camp Stark during World War II, and the unlikely friendships that formed amongst the soldiers, civilians, and POWs on both sides of the fence.

To add some context to the above comment:

The original model of the painting could be from Frans Hals circa 1580-1666 -- just a guess.

As for Franz Bacher in Stark, NH, here's a quote from the book Stark Decency by Allen Koop: "Meanwhile, back at Camp Stark, rumors flew about the fate of Franz Bacher, the camp's only prisoner of war to elude capture for more than a month."
