It is composed of 4 pieces glued together. 26" x 60". The three maps were given to Lisa Fittko by her friend, Honoré Pratts, who was a pilot, or coastal patrol chief, of the village of Port-Vendres, France. Pratts was employed by the Germans to oversee the coastal waters of Port-Vendres. However, he was also the area chief of the French Resistance. He gave these maps to Fittko for her use. The envelope from the Centre Américain de Secours is addressed to Lisa Fittko. It once contained the torn piece of paper which matched the paper that refugees would present to the Fittkos when contacting the Fittkos in Banyuls-sur-Mer, France.
