Here are a number of old photographic postcards of the former German town of Rastenburg in East Prussia (Ostpreussen), Germany, now Ketrzyn / Kętrzyn (Rastembork) in Poland. Hitler's infamous Wolf's Lair (Wolfsschanze) was located in the forests just outside the town.


We hope that by making these and other old postcards available online that they will be of interest to anyone interested in the history of Rastenburg / Ketrzyn or researching the East Prussia area and/or or Prussian, Jewish, German or Polish ancestry.
