Also see . . .  The Oflag 64 Association. "The prisoner of war camp designated Oflag (Offizierslager) 64 was established by the Germans during World War II in Szubin, Poland to detain captured American officers. The first American officers arrived in the camp on June 6, 1943. The initial occupants numbered around 150. By the time the camp was evacuated in January 1945, their ranks had grown to approximately 1,400." (Submitted on January 24, 2018, by J. Makali Bruton of Querétaro, Mexico.)
