An unintentional, but wonderful post. I learned this morning, watching the BBC News, that a trove of Christmas cards and letters from WW2 have been found on the Channel Island of Jersey, off the British coast. The island was occupied during WW2 by the German Army. The civilian population of the island tried to come up with various ways to strike back at their German occupiers, and in one action, stole a number of German soldiers’ Christmas letters to their families back in Germany. The cards and letters were recently re-discovered, and after some postal detective work, they are now being delivered to the families of the soldiers.
