Stalag Luft VI and Stalag Luft IV Notebooks – “Miss Liberty!”

(Posted: July 31, 2011)

Here she is – Miss America – and “Miss Nude America” at that.  It had been a long time since Dad had seen a woman and sketching one is as close as he could get at that moment to viewing one.  My Father was definitely looking towards freedom when he sketched her.  He had to be thinking of his return to home with the American Flag and the Statue of Liberty shown in the background and I notice that this beauty is drawn in the center of a “V” – “V” of course for Victory.   There were definitely signs of liberation in this sketch and Dad was looking into the future putting 1944 behind and looking forward to 1945 – the year he would anticipate freedom and never look back at his experience as a Prisoner of War.  Home sweet home was on the horizon.
