    I got one of the trunks from a young lawyer in Hartford who found them in his attic after he bought the house the man raised his family in, since he and his wife died the son moved out leaving no address, the lawyer never knew the trunks were there so he never asked

    Nice trunk, the grips on the sides look older then the ones on trunks that where made in that time i think. It could be that these where older trunks that they reused? Do you have pictures of the lock on the front?
    I´ve seen grips like this on old german marriage chests from the 1900´s.

    I’ll get a picture of the lock tomorrow, yes probably made earlier and reused, my thoughts too

    More than likely anyone liberated from a Camp would not have anything, except the clothes on their back. And a piece of paper saying there were camp inmates.
    This man did not have to be in a Camp, he could have been Forced laborer.
    Hundreds of thousands of Polish Citizens were forced laborers, and many of these chose to immigrate from Poland.
