Wednesday's Wonderful Collection - Heinz-Joachim Bartels letters, MS.000262

Obergefreite [Corporal] Heinz-Joachim Bartels of the German Luftwaffe was a prisoner of war at Camp Robinson, Arkansas, during World War II. He was captured in Sicily in the summer of 1943. Bartels worked as an interpreter and in the prisoner-of-war hospital at Camp Robinson. These letters were written to Bartels' uncle and his uncle's family in Brooklyn, New York. The first letter, dated January 10, 1944, is probably not the first one written by Bartels since he refers to earlier letters. The last letter, dated May 3, 1946, was written the day before he left Arkansas to be repatriated to Germany.

This collection consists of letters written by Heinz-Joachim Bartels while interned as a prisoner of war at Camp Joseph T. Robinson, Arkansas, during World War II.
