I have a group from a Stalag Luft 3 survivor. He had saved some mundane paper items. At first it looked like trash. After looking at this topic I see their sentimental value. Will take some pictures and post.

Lt Lawson Corley, at Stalag Luft 3 remembered that POW's kept everything. Looks like little pieces of trash but I'm sure each had a memory for Lt Corley. Also his POW mirror and a post card he wrote home on a piece of cardboard. Yes it made it home. He even saved a piece of toilet paper.

Lt Corley brought home this German propaganda leaflet that was handed out to POWs to show them how good they had it.

Evidently someone was collecting this stuff during WWII. The Germans claimed the leaflets were selling for $10-15 in the States.
