ICRC Records

Well done Red Cross!  Prisoner of War Records can now be searched.  When I have learned what can be found, more posts should follow.  Here’s a record relating to a recent Guestbook visitor:-

The records cover Prisoners of War, but also German citizens interned during hostilities.  These included my gt gt Uncle Ernst Wissel who was married to Aunt Lily and provided a roof over my Grandad’s head in 1911
