Hi. My mother, Rosemary (Pat) Say was interned at both the Besancon and Vittel camps. I wrote her story a few years back - "Rosie's War" by Noel Holland. I am now researching a broader book on the two camps and would love to hear from anyone who had relatives interned there.

I saw a video of the Sherman tanks liberating the camp. My father, Ronald Albert Hall, my aunt Diane Hall and grandmother Marie Hall were all there. It was on ITN, but I don't remember the rest of it. My uncle in France found it and sent it to me. After they were 'released', they made it back to England. He was only 16, but lied about his age and joined the British Army. Can anyone help with the rest of the website?

Hi,
I read the book and am using it to research my relatives who were also interned but only in Frontstalag 142. I also interviewed Shula Troman who said there were a couple of errors in the book she wanted corrected! So...for your reprint you need to know... She spoke so fondly of Rosie who she called Pat.

In the Mémorial de la Déportation des Juifs de Belgique, by Serge Klarsfeld and Maxime Steinberg, several Jews sent to Vittel were given as "missing". An independent researcher found that at least the majority of them were still alive. He had found some of them in the phonebook. The Belgian press spoke of this affair in the last months of 1990.

Does anyone have an email address for Steve Beste, a forum member, who a year or two ago was collecting information about the Vittel Internment Camp in France? I'd like to contact him with a query. Thanks.

I am searching for the identity a Mary de Moleyns who sent a POW postcard from Front-Stalag 121 at Vittel on 31st October 1942 to a nearby address, here in Sussex. Has any researcher come across this name by any obscure chance?
