I need help to identify the attached picture and the artist.
Was it not Stalag XXI-D which was in Posen?
Poznań Fortress - Wikipedia
Between 1940 and 1945, Fort Grolman and Fort Rauch formed the nucleus of the Stalag XXI-D PoW camp.

Well, may be it was called OFLAG XXb. for British officers like Michael Duncan.
It used to be an old fortress.
Looks like “Poland Oflag XXIB” written on drawing. My great grandad was there for a while there is a thread with photos of his logbook on here.
Hello, do you know the thread name?
Is this it?
POW logbook pictures and more
Yes, that's the one. I've been away from the site for a bit and realised that I needed to update the photo link. There's also a Facebook group dedicated to the camp. Polish-American Foundation for the Commemoration of POW Camps in Szubin | Facebook
Sorry, meant to post link - was trying to get ready for work this morning when I saw your post. I see DBF has posted the link here for you.
Great pics, unfortunately most show prisoners. I was looking for camp pictures without POWs.
I think generally the Germans discouraged those sorts of photos in case it gave away too many details about the camp layout. You’ll notice that many of the photos are taken in the same location.
I fully understand, trouble is, in my book abut an escape of British officers from a POW camp in my home town, having been in Poznan before I cannot show faces, unless I reach an agreement with these men. Even a drawing,may be showing the tunnel like sleeping quarters of Poznan would do fine as well.
