Postman Hans


This charming, hand-painted birthday card was among the treasures brought by broadcaster Nick Ross to Hidden Treasures’ Jewish Heirlooms Roadshow. It was made for Nick’s father Hans Rosenbluth who was interned during the Second World War as an ‘enemy alien’ having been sent from England to Australia. It was made by his fellow Dunera internees in Hut 26 of Camp 7 and is dated 4 June 1941. Hans was postmaster of the Camp and Hut 26’s residents were known as the Roebucks after a pub back home in London.
