Re: Mission Report needed

This may have been a photo reconnaissance mission. I recall seeing a photo of the buildings/housing area, and it was marked Oświęcim without the apostrophe or eng tail (ogonek).

Re: Mission Report needed

I am Polish and this is the first time I'm hearing something like this. I would like to know what the target was.
