I would really like some ones help on understanding what is going on in a selection of photographs I found in my grandfathers photo album. They seem to depict some kind of ceremony in an outdoor square. Where men wearing some plain white uniforms are sitting on folding chairs with German officers all around them. My Grandfather was a German soldier from 1939-1945. He was captured by the French and put in a POW camp which he escaped from and made his way back to Germany. I'm wondering if what's pictured is a ceremony repatriating captured soldiers back into German service. I will post the photos soon if anyone is interested in helping me solve this mystery. I have added some more interesting photos from my grandfathers album. I'm looking forward to your comments .
