View Full Version : An unusual request

03 Oct 07,, 14:47
Hello Gentlemen,
Recently I have been asked by a close friend of the family to research POW camps located in Brest, France during WWI.

A friend of the family has asked that I find these camps that his father spent time at as a German POW before emigrating to the U.S./Name change etc after the war.

The interesting thing is that this man (whom was imprisoned during WWI) served aboard on of my fathers ships as Chief Engineer during WWII in the USN during the Pacific campaign.

The family would just like to know the possible names of the POW camps located in Brest so that they can research.

Any information or guidance would be much appreciated.
Much thanks,
