    In a nutshell, the last letter is from a woman to her mother. Apparently the mother has had to move in with another family, and the daughter is trying to locate a room for her in her town, and possibly the same house so they can be together...
    cheers, Glenn

    Thanks! Does it say why...? Bombing damage?

    No, it doesn't say why she's been moved into another family's house...but I was thinking the same thing, bomb damage...as she was living close to Leipzig this is certainly a possibility.

    It's not so easy to translate letters like thes, you have to know gothic German and be able to read hand writings like these (and usually the translators want high quailty scans). Usually costs 10-20 euro to have letters like this one translated.

    I figured as much. I would be more than willing to compensate anyone willing to help, including bigmacglenn!

    Lieber Onkel Franz,
    Ich habe von Tante Hilde (?) gehört, dass du dich mit meinen Marken beschäftigst. Das ist natürlich lieb von dir. Hoffentlich kannst du einige davon brauchen.
    Uns geht es sehr gut, besonders jetzt, wo wir uns so freuen, dass wir den Krieg hier beendet und auch glücklich überstanden haben. Damit rückt ja für uns auch die
    Möglichkeit näher wieder nach Wien zu kommen und das ist ja für uns alle das Wichtigste.
    Alles Liebe auch an Tante Alice.
    Dein Gutl

    It's not written in old german (Sütterlin).. just simple handwriting. Maybe someone wants to translate? I'm currently too busy but I'll come back to this thread soon.
