Stefan Schicht Photo Gallery
 

   
     

Stefan Schicht was born in Deutschbentschek in 1897.  In 1927, he migrated to Canada and eventually Chicago, where he worked at the Mars candy factory.  He returned to Deutschbentschek to live by the late 1930s.
 
Over the years, Stefan took many photographs, both in America and in Deutschbentschek after his return home.  He generously shared copies with his friends and relatives, in the later years sending several of his Bentschek photos back to America.
