During World War II the Nazies occupied Greece and Mount Athos, as mentioned before in this weblog (see categories “war“). It also gave Germans scholars the opportunity to do scientific investigations: the Byzantologist prof dr Dölger visited Athos in 1942 with a team. He published his expedition to Athos, together with many black and white pictures, in his book “Mönchsland Athos”, with the help of prof dr E. Weigand from Prag and A. Deindle from Berlin (see post 599).
Here are some more the pictures he published:
