In the introduction to the article, the author informs briefly on the exhibition organized by the Eastern Slovakia Museum in Košice on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of the World War I, titled This is what our grandfathers were like. World War 1. and Eastern Slovakia, 27 June 2014 – 7 December 2014. The author highlights that the most precious addition was the unique album of photographs from the battlefields of the World War 1, made by Anton Brecher (1888 – 1964) living in Košice for a major part of his life. After entering the military service, he became the military photographer and thanks to this undisputed benefit, he managed to survive for the full four years without serious injury on the frontline. The album also contains paintings with military topic, made by Brecher. The captions contain not only the subject of the photographs but also the place (municipality, town and significant geographic data) and time (usually the month and year, sometimes even the specific date) of shooting. The caption texts are in Hungarian, apart from the majority of military terms, which are in German. The album contains primarily the shots of combat activity of the Austro-Hungarian Army units on the frontline (building trenches, infantry fire and shellfire, transfers of soldiers, meetings of officers, caring for the wounded, burying the fallen, etc.). Another interesting part comprises the photographs depicting the situation in the rear, leisure time and typical entertainment of the soldiers.
