    Translation
    • Oskar Speck, P.W. 64 Internment Camp Tatura 20 March 1941 File No.1 To: Consul J.A. Pietzcker Consul for Switzerlandss Consul Dear ConsulMr. Pietzcker Consul, I received your letter dated 19/0.2/.41. Accordingly, the matter can be regarded as settled, except for the issue of compensation. The extent to which the argument put forward by of the military [text incomplete*] is illogical is apparent by virtue of the fact thatin the fact that the [text incomplete* possibly: theft] of my cameras only became evident [text incomplete*] after I received permission to sell them. So, [text incomplete*] the theft, to dispute my right to possess the cameras was not at all a matter of dispute. Realising that there is no use in pursuing this matter any further (before the end of the war), I would like to express my gratitude for your help. Yours faithfully, Oskar Speck * The typing on the copy apparently went beyond the border of the page, so that parts of it are missing
