|Photo of Sagan taken by an RAF Mosquito in late 1944 (re-oriented to match the sketch). My hut, Block 103, is on the extreme right of the North Camp and second from the bottom. The "Great Escape" tunnel started in Block 104 (one hut up from mine), and came out near the compound by the edge of the woods to the right of the photograph. The railway station can also be seen to the right. |
