Concentration Camps Correspondence
This letter is from Josef to his parents. He says he is overjoyed to receive a letter from them. He says he doesn't know where
Uncle Straszek lives and if his furniture is still with you. He writes that he realizes it must be hard on his father to still
be working at brick factory because he is getting too old. He wants to know if his sister has to go too. He mentions good weather and
that Easter is approaching and that he hopes they will be together for the next Easter. He says it has been a year that they haven't
each other and that it has flown by but he hopes the Good Lord brings them together again. He mentions it is sad that Mrs. Zadorecka
died so suddenly and left behind young children. He ends his letter with "joyous, alleluya"
- Correspondence from Josef DRONG and Anton DRAG, both prisoners in SACHSENHAUSEN, who were probably brothers even though their names are written differently and sometimes in more than one way. Their prisoner numbers are in close sequence which shows they probably arrived at the camp at the same time. Except where noted, the letters of both are addressed to Franz DRONG (or Drag) in Chocznia then in Wadowitz in Upper Silesia. They are addressed to “dear parents, sister and brother-in-law ».
- he spells his name « Drag »
