    Undated questionare, but pre-dating the above, one of the questions is:
    "Do You know if Por Stach was on a german list/or published in german papers"
    She answers: "I have no idea"
    German lists were published in 1943, they are the earliest lists, also referred to as the "am lists."
    The next question was:
    "When did You receive last letter/postcard from him and where was it from?"
    She says in march 1940.

    Thank you Gary. I will check it for references to my uncle.

    Below is some items i recently purchased over the Christmas period in Poland. I think it is best to give a brief description of what i have so as not to cause any mix ups.

    I was shown an item recently handed in to a Antykwariat of a pre War Legitymacja Osobista of Stanisław Roubo. With it i bought two photos of his brother a Witold Roubo with messeges on the back.

    Witold who is in the two pictures was murdered in Charków in 1940. There is more information about him on the internet and photos that his relatives kept.
    The Legitymacja Osobista of Stanisław Roubo






    Photos of his brother Witold Roubo





    I have no idea why the family wished to part with such personal family history material, to me is without sense.
