Her name was Magda, a German Jew.
His name was Carl, an American G.I.
Magda had been a victim of the Holocaust, sent to Auschwitz, the Nazi prison camp.
After being rescued and set free by American and Allied troops, she met Carl W. Benson, an American Army soldier.
The two fell in love, and before Carl returned to the states, to his home in Oklahoma, he gave Magda his address so she could write to him.
