I am presently translating almost 300 letters from German soldiers on the Eastern Front and the Polar region for a nonfiction book.
I bought them from a collector in Croatia who told me they were in a bag with the date 1950 on it.
At first it was somewhat of a puzzle as the letters are dated from 1940 to 1944 with most of the letters from six men. Many times these letters were kept by the Feldpost censor and never mailed, but after reading through them I discovered that they are brothers and the letters did make it home, only probably to be confiscated by the invading Russians from their parent's house.
The family name is Laustroer. I would be very interested in contacting family members to learn the fate of these soldiers: Siegfried, Rudolf, Heinz, Karl, Hans and Franz. There are other letters from soldiers that may also be related to them.
