Friedrich Günser correspondence

Document | Accession Number: 2016.517.1

Correspondence sent and received by Friedrich Günser, originally of Vienna, Austria, who was interned by the British as an enemy alien in the early years of World War II, first in Camp Mooragh on the Isle of Man, and then at Camp Tatura in Australia. Includes one postcard from Günser's wife, Lilly (Cölestine), sent from Vienna (August 1940); a letter from Günser to relatives in New York (June 1940); an empty envelope that had contained a letter from Günser's father, Jakob, sent from Vienna (October 1941), and three letters from Günser to his wife Lilly (October 1941, January-February 1943), which went unanswered and were returned to Günser in Australia. Most of the letters and envelopes show signs of having been opened by German and British censors, as well as having been re-routed or returned to Günser, including those not forwarded after Lilly Günser had been deported from her home in Vienna.
