Card to the International Red Cross organization in Switzerland, searching for USA Air Force prisoner in German POW camp Stalag Luft IV, shot down over Germany. It's amazing any of these guys made it home -- besides jumping out of a burning airplane, they had to survive the locals whose homes they had just been dropping bombs on. With handstamps of the Red Cross and the Fribourg, Switzerland Catholic Mission. Slightly worn, good condition, as per scans.
