I am the son of an 82nd Airborne paratrooper who was wounded and captured on D-Day and subsequently held in a POW Hospital in Rennes, France. This hospital variously called E.P.S Rennes, EPS Lazarett (Teillager), Rennes Military Hospital, Frontstalag 221 W, or Lazarett 133, held the wounded Allied paratroopers from D-Day and later other Allied wounded. It was administered by the Germans but Allied and French doctors ran the place.
I am seeking any stories from the estimated 300 British and Canadian POWs that were held there or were patched up there and sent on. These stories I hope will fill in the blanks that my father never told me about. I have collected what I believe to be most of the estimated 1300 POW names from June, July 1944 that were there prior to liberation on 4 August.
Thanks in advance,
