ABANDONED Search : Samuel GARD

We are NO LONGER searching for Samuel GARD, born about 1931.

An Australian military policeman who served in WWII was taken prisoner by the Germans on Crete and later interned in Germany. The soldier helped a young Jewish boy. Along with some friends they hid him in the Camp and taught him to speak English with an Australian accent.

The soldier arranged through the Red Cross to have the boy's name changed to Samuel GARD. He was 13 when they first hid him (so at a guess Samuel was therefore born in about 1931).

Samuel was handed over to the Americans as a displaced person.

Where did he go?

What happened to him?

Do you recognize any of this?

Can you guide us in any way?

If you have no information, do you know of anyone else, anywhere, where we can ask?
