Complete correspondence of a French war prisoner to his partner.
We discover the daily life of a gardener from Loire-inférieure (ex-Loire-Atlantique) who was mobilized in September 1939, taken prisoner in June 1940 at Stalag 4 and released in February 1945.
Through 380 documents in chronological order, we discover the daily life of a soldier who discovers a new region (landscape, climate, snow...). We then discover the daily life of a prisoner in a German camp: work, remuneration, camaraderie...
We also learn the life of the women, left alone in France: raising children, solidarity between neighbours...
We also attach some period documents: receipts for the deposit of parcels for prisoners (approx. 48) and various documents (approx. 10): local taxes, municipal elections, social insurance...
