Major Merzweiler & a few young girls in Czechoslovakia

One of the girl's mothers in the picture insisted on giving the Major pictured above
one of the traditional costumes the girls are shown wearing.  He said they buried
them during the war for safe-keeping and dug them up when they were liberated
to celebrate.
His daughter was about the age of the girls, and he took the traditional dress home
to his daughter. His granddaughter now has that dress you see in the picture.
