WWII Internment Letter, Isle of Mann 1942

WWII Internment Letter, Isle of Mann 1942
    An Opened By EXAMINER letter dated 4-18-1942 from a German imprisoned in the Hutchinson Interment Camp in Douglas, Isle of Man sent to a woman in East Harlem, New York City. The letter is written in German so I do not know what it says, but it cannot be much, but has a most interesting story to tell.

    As many Germans left Hitler’s Reich for the freedom of England, only to be interned once hostilities broke out and Germans were rounded up over concern for spies. Mr Strum is not a prisoner of war, but an internment prisoner, confined without charges or intent to file charges, a preventive confinment.

    Hutchinson Internment Camp was particularly noted as the artists camp due to the thriving artistic and intellectual life of its internees.

    The letter is franked with a hand-stamped OFFICIAL PAID 28 AP 42
