Message Sujet du message: Leonard Piontek--Polish Football Player a POW in the USA? Répondre en citant


Picked up a postcard and lettersheet for a German POW held at the camp in Clinton, Mississippi. I did a Google search of the name, Leonhard Piontek, and came up with a number of potential matches to a famed Polish football (soccer) player. What I could find of his background, it appears he was from the same region of Poland. There is a difference in the spelling of the first name. Is this the same man? Is there anything in his writings that offer a clue? Any help with the translations is greatly appreciated.
From Wikipedia:Leonard Franciszek Piątek (born Leonard Franz Piontek, October 13, 1913 in Królewska Huta – July 1, 1967) was a Polish football player who played in the interwar period. A hard-working and ambitious forward, Piontek was the top scorer for Polish first division vice-champions AKS Chorzów in 1937 and went on to lead the league the following season with 21 goals.He represented Poland on the country's national side in 16 games from 1937 to 1939, scoring 11 goals. He scored twice in Poland's 4:0 win over Yugoslavia in a World Cup qualifier and took part in the legendary 1938 FIFA World Cup match against Brazil in (Strasbourg, France on June 5, 1938 (5:6 Brazil). Piontek also scored a goal in the last international match played in Poland before the outbreak of World War II, a 4:2 victory over Hungary on August 27, 1939.Piontek signed the Volksliste (German Nationality List) after the Nazi invasion of Poland which allowed him to continue his footballing career. His club AKS Chorzów was now playing as Germania Königshütte and with Piontek as their key player the team dominated the first division Gauliga Schlesien – part of the German football league system – throughout the early 1940s far outperforming state-supported rivals 1. FC Katowice.[1]

Please help.
