A CALLAN man is looking for a suitable home for a collection of World War II memorabilia.

Edward Heron, who inherited the photographs from his uncle-in-law, has told national media that his intention is to donate them to an institution in Ireland or abroad where they can be properly displayed.

His memorabilia includes photographs of the Nazi concentration camp at Buchenwald that were brought to an antiques valuation day hosted recently by Sheppards auctioneers in Durrow.

Mr Heron has explained that he was given the 10 photographs by his relative, who had received them from a US soldier after the war’s end.
