Bata factory, Ottmuth, Silesia, Germany. 1939

The Ottmuth - Otmet - factory was built in the same manner as other Bata satellites. During World War II it was staffed by forced labour - perhaps also from Stalag VIIIb - , and had the name Ota Schuh AG under Nazi control. I have yet to see any photos or cards of the standard Bata housing in Ottmuth.

A modern picture of the Bata factory (2006) in Krapkowice (Otmet Ottmuth) Poland is here on the wikipedia page.
