My Dad, 2d. Lt. Charles Vevier of the Bronx, New York was a bombardier in the 525th Squadron of the 379th Bomb Group -- the 8th Air Force.  He was stationed in Kimbolton, England and assigned to a makeshift 9 member crew, not his regular crew, for a bombing run over Eisenach, Germany when his B-17G bomber plane was shot down by enemy flak west of the Rhine River on September 11, 1944.  He was 19-20 years old.  A family relative was doing some research and discovered the Missing Air Crew Report -- the source of some of this information.  From there, I found your wonderful website. My Dad was a POW until the liberation of Stalag Luft 1 by the Russians in May, 1945.  He did not speak much about his military service or especially his time as a POW although he did mention Henry Bengis who I believe he may have communicated with towards the end of his life.  My Dad passed away in 1995  after a distinguished career as a university professor and administrator.  His wife Marcia, his three children Ann (myself), Ellen and John and his grandchildren Charlie (his namesake) and Steven all miss him to this day.  We do not have many details about his barracks assignment or his time in the POW camp and only learned of his assignment to the North 1 compound through your website.  We would be grateful for any information anyone may have to fill in the details of my Dad's service.  To all the brave men of the Greatest Generation and their families ... our love and respect.

Enjoyed reading Lt Neuwirth's story...so happens Paul Sundheim was my next door neighbor who he taught to use the Neubin system to play bridge and win the camp championship ...as kid had no idea that Paul's enjoyment of playing bridge was connected to his POW days......he rarely spoke of his POW experience...remember how fascinating it was to my brother and myself when he did share ...like the time after his P-51 was shot down over Holland and he was trying to hide when all of sudden German soldiers were pointing guns at him....also got the impression he went through a rough interrogation process prior to arrival at the camp...Uncle Paul as we called him was a great neighbor...the other interesting thing was a guy named William (Bill) Friedberg ran a store in next town over  (I grew up in Bayport, NY) was also in the same camp and think was housed in same part of camp...they recognized each other about 20 years later!

My father Lt John E. Smith was in the South Compound, Barrack 4, Room 24 and then North Compound I, Barrack 1, Room 14. His roommates are listed in his Red Cross Journal and I emailed their names. One of his roommates in the South Compound was Lr Linn C. Stuckenbruck who had taken color photos of the camp. The color photos by him are on this website and I just found my father in one of the photos. There's a photo of 4 men standing side by side in the camp and my father John E. Smith is the 2nd from the right with his hands in his pocket. Imagine my excitement in finding this photo and recognizing him right away. My Dad would have been thrilled. He always spoke fondly of his friends and roommates in the camp. What honorable men they all were. I'm grateful for all of the hard work the people maintaining this site have done.

Comments:
My father 2nd Lt John E. Smith was the co-pilot of a B-25 Bomber and was shot down during a mission on November 17, 1943 over Kalamaki Aerodrome, Athens, Greece. Only he and the Pilot, John D. O'Leary survived. The 4 other crew members were killed at the time of impact. I recently found the declassified daily logs for the 340th Bombardment Group, 486th squadron which gave the story of my father's capture. The Greek Underground found the pilot and my father who was wounded. Since my father was wounded they allowed him to be captured by the Germans so he could receive medical care. The pilot was taken away by the Greek Underground and it took 2 months before he returned to base to give an accounting of the mission, all of the crew had been designated as Missing In Action. My mother received her first telegram from the War Department in December,1943 and the next telegram was on January 4, 1944 stating he was a POW. He remained a POW until May 1, 1945 when the camp was liberated and then was sent to Camp Lucky Strike in Le Havre, France. He was returned home to NY on June 22, 1945. My father had been assigned to the North Compound at Stalag I. He like so many others didn't talk much about what it was like at the camp but one time he did speak at a family occasion what it was like to be gliding down in a parachute, wounded and German planes surrounding him and waiting for them to open fire. I have quite a few of the War Department Telegrams, his letters between him and my Mom and other family members. They offer a glimpse into the history of the world at war and the honor these men carried with them. Many of the letters are heartbreaking and you almost feel guilty for reading such private thoughts. He didn't write very much in the journal provided by the Rec Cross and I now wonder why. There are so many questions I wish I had asked. One of the things he saved was a single "Red Poppy", it's pressed dry in a white envelope upon which he had printed "Flanders Field, France". I can close my eyes and picture him as a young but weary man standing in a field of Red Poppies and looking out to sea towards home, knowing he was free and should soon be back with his wife and family. He had survived when so many of his friends hadn't. My family had many career military and it has been an honor to have known them all. They sacrificed much for us.

My father served with the 45th Infantry Division, 180th Regiment, Co., G and was captured on February 19, 1944 at Anzio after being knocked on conscious from artillery fire.  He was transported north at first to Stalag VIIA and then by April he was transported to Stalag IIB in Hammerstein, Pomerania and then to an Arbeitskommando in the small hamlet of Hasseln with other American POW's...named Ranger Joe Bero, Joe Schumer and John Scalise, all of which had been captured in the Italian campaign.  In January of 1945 they marched in subzero weather in blizzards from Pomerania to Stettin, then crossed the Oder River and marched through Waren, Neubrandenburg and eventually to Lauenburg on the Elbe where the 82nd Airborne Division was along with some British units. I have more details from my talks with my dad and his friends.  If anyone has more interest feel free to write me.

Comments:
My brother Rudy kept a diary while in prison camp and I happen to be reading through it  a few days ago and I came across something very interesting. He wrote in his diary about a German Guard shooting a prisoner who went to retrieve a ball which had gone into the no man's land which is an area of ground between the prisoners and the wire fence in the prison yard. Although the airman had asked permission to retrieve the ball a tower guard shot him anyway and then a few days later the same guard beat a prisoner with his rifle butt. This scene was part of the movie "The Great Escape" with Steve McQueen and is indicated in one of the notes in your web that this all took place in Stalag Luft III. However, Rudy has written about it in his diary which he made while in prison camp at Stalag Luft I. His diary is now in the WWII Museum in Camp Shelby In Hattisburg, Ms. where there is a display about Rudy and his life in prison. There is also a short story in a book called "Ted's traveling Circus" about his plane being shot down. Rudy was a part of this Bomber group and he was shot down during the Big Week which was the turning point in WWII for air superiority over Europe. If you would like I can send you a copy of his diary as it has been typed up by the Museum as best as they could decipher his writing and I have a copy. I also wonder if the movie Stalag 17 was about Stalag Luft I as Rudy used to talk about all the tunnels they dug and they all made wooden dinner ware to eat with so they could use the metal knives, forks, and spoons that were issued by the Germans as their digging tools. If you have any information relative to these prison camps please let me know as all the stories he told when he came back from the war are so similar to both movies. I have watched them both over and over. There was an interesting TV program just this past week about the P-51 fighter and the important part it played during the Big Week to escort the bombers to and from their targets. Still some did not make it back. The program was put on by National Geographic. I love your web site and I think it is the best on the web regarding the WWII prisoners of war. Please let me hear from you about the camps. Thanks, Larry H Case

My father was a B17 Pilot shot down over Germany I believe in 1944. All on his plane survived, except the Gunner. I know that one crew member reached out to him about a year before he passed on (1980) After the war he went on to work for Honeywell in the Aerospace industry. He worked as a Honeywell Field Support person in support of the first Mariner Mars program with NASA, and was a group leader on Honeywell's development of the first Ring Laser Gyro.

My Dad, James W. Nance, was a 2nd Lt. In the U.S. Army Air Corp during WWII. He flew a P-47 Thunderbolt in bombing missions over Germany while a member of the 379th Fighter Squadron/362nd Fighter Group. In late December, 1944, during the Battle of the Bulge, while making strafing run over the marshalling yards at Weilerbach, his aircraft was shot down by enemy anti-aircraft fire. My Dad was on the run for several days trying to reach France. However, he was caught by a German Army Officer within just a mile of the French border and was escorted to Stalag Luft I. He remained a POW there until the camp was liberated by the Russians on April 30, 1945.

My father was a bombardier who was shot down over the English Channel. He was a POW with C Ross Greening and after the war he received the book that was published by Greening, containing his artist's rendering of stories told at the camp. I have 8 of those plates with handwritten notes. The were in my Dad's office until he died. I'd like to donate them but don't know where to go. His last duty station was the USAFA so I suppose they should go there.

My Uncle James Patrick Hill was part of the 456th Bombardment Group.  He was a waist gunner on B 24 and was shot down in Hungary -  He was sent to the Hospital Karoly Boulevard Budapest Hungary but the hospital was bombed and he  was then sent to Stalag 1.  However, the last record I can find of him is the time he spent in the Hungarian Hospital..... If anyone has information of James Patrick Hill in Stalag 1 I would be very appreciative.   Thank You

My father just recently pasted away. He was with the Winnipeg Rifles during WW2 and was captured a couple of days after D-Day. I am looking for any information that anyone can provide on these two camps. I would like to visit the sites in the near future.
