Lieutenant Wladyslaw Kosmider 10th Regiment InfantryI came across this website and was wondering if anyone would have any information about my father who was a POLISH SOLDIER, fighting against the germans and captured, September 1939, in the September Campaign. He went to POW CAMP, Oflag II A and IIE, from 1939 to 1944, and another camp 1944 to 1945 when liberated by the British. He worked for the BRITISH ARMY OF THE RHINE, Major General L. M. Weinstock. as a translator, and Polish Military Centre, served as a superintendant with MSO(WS) in 1947, Hamburg area, with Staff Capt Kirby. I'm not sure of alot, like everyone here, he did not answer questions. I should have done this inquiry a long long time ago, but with internet, I'm just learning how much is out here. This is a shot in the dark, but maybe someone was a POW in the same place? Anything would be great help! thanks so much.Kathi Kosmider
