Description: Box 1: Item 2012.117. Dangel-Sivadier correspondence, 1941-1942. Includes a postcard, 30 December, 1941 from André Dangel, a French prisoner of war in a German POW camp to Marthe Sivadier (probably his wife) and his mother in Paris. Dangel expresses hope to be released and mentions that a fellow prisoner, who will be repatriated to France shortly is planning on visiting Marthe and his mother. Also included is a letter, 7/28/1942, from Marthe Sivadier (Paris) to André Dangel still in the POW camp ("M.-Stammlater, V A"). She talks about her work, complains that not enough effort has been made to secure Dangel's release from the camp, talks about upcoming vacation with family, how she spends her weekends and how she hopes that he will be released soon, due to his status as medic and father. Both items are written in French, and the stationary is pre-printed specifically for POW correspondence with address field, instructions, name of camp, etc. printed both in German and French.
