WWII Exchange of Polish POW's 1939-1940
Family history says my dad was in a prisoner (POW) exchange, Captured by the Russians in late 1939 and in Lagiers then transferred/exchanged to the German and then in Stalags starting with XXA in Thorne. This POW exchange happened in or near Hannover, Germany in 1939 or 1940. I am not seeing the exchange by simple internet search. Anyone have more information, it must have been significant?
Polish POW transfer from Russians to Germans 1939
old family records state my dad was captured by Russians in 1939, held for a while in Lagiers then there was a prisoner exchange in Hannover, Germany in 1939 or 1940 and dad went to Stalag XXA , the first of many Stalags . I can find no information online about this prisoner exchange. It must have been a big deal involving many POWs. Does anyone have information on this exchange?
