POW Work Detail? Slave Labor? Do You Know?

The following photos were scanned from one roll of negatives my father brought home after World War Two.
What is this group?
There is no displayed insignia of service or rank, but the caps are German (single-button Luftwaffe?).
Bottom photo: Check out the closeup of the belt buckle. Although the detail is not clear, it matches the Luftwaffe type of buckle.
You can add a comment about the photos at the bottom of this section of photos.
