Letter from a detainee
This letter is written on behalf of another detainee, who cannot read or write well. Author ZZ complains that a doctor prescribed only water for illnesses, so medication has to be bought from the commissary along with food, because "God knows what they give us." They say that the Allies' help is a blessing.
