A former camp officer at Auschwitz living in Munich sold to one of us these original snapshots taken of one of the half dozen orchestras and bands formed by inmates of the infamous Auschwitz slave labor camp, the Kubu orchestra, said to have been comprised of Cuban Jews. On the back of some of the five snapshots is a rubber stamp of the Auschwitz camp office, and at some time -- possibly after the war -- a German hand has inscribed captions on some of them. Pencil caption: "gedeckte Tafel für unsere jüdischen Freunde vom Kubu Ochester" ("Table set for our Jewish friends in the Kubu Band")
