WWII Concentration Camp Mail

Peter H. Semetis of Hilton Head Island, SC writes about his dad, Harry P. Semetis.

Peter says his father had given him back in the 1980's a collection of concentration camp mail. His father said he had acquired it during World War II as he and his fellow combat engineers advanced town to town until reaching Germany.

He also told Peter of how he would enter concentration camps during liberation, then go straight to the postal rooms and collect various letters and cards. A large group is from Westermark as well as a 7 piece postcard set addressed to the camp from the Ukraine.

Peter has held on to these but would now like to dispose of them and isn't sure who might be interested.
