PLEASE can anyone shed any more light on the panoptikum. Great to know all above board and there may yet be a Westphalian reader. Keep going Geoff.

With Stephen Bulls explanation -for me its crystalclear that the panoptikum is located on the Eastern Front as the copy of the postcard says (see earlier picture post in this thread)!

Thanks Egbert - another id.

A2 P16 P5

The Jesuit Church of St Casimir, Vilnius, Lithuania.

Constructed as a Catholic Church this was converted into the Orthodox Church of St Michael in 1839. In 1915 the German army turned the church into a Lutheran house of worship for their army. In 1917 the church was returned to the Catholics. In 1963 under Soviet rule it was converted into a Museum of Atheism

Photo 1 shows the church in its pre-GW orthodox configuration. Photo 2 shows the current façade.

I wonder what the significance of the white armband on the chap stood next to the NCO on the left of the picture is?
