Hi

I know that my father was POW WWII in USA.

I would like to know where in the USA (Pennsylvania) and maybe more info.

Who can help me to find info?

Thanks and regards.

S.D.

Dear S.D.,

There were more than a dozen POW and internment camps in Pennsylvania during
World War II. Perhaps the attached guide might help you zero in on your
father’s.

Perhaps you might also find a clue in a feature in the October 2012 issue of World War II magazine: German POWs: Coming to a Town Near You.”
