Can anyone help me trace a former Austrian Joe Pollack (or perhaps Pollak), who fled from Prague to Palestine about 1938, just ahead of the Gestapo "putsch". With the outbreak of WWII, Joe enlisted in the British Army and saw service with the Anglo-ANZAC force that went to Greece in 1941. He was left behind in Athens, where in December 1941 was "rescued" by a pair of New Zealaders operating an escape and evasion line from the Island of Antiparos in the Cyclades. This group were later captured and interned in POW camps in Italy. During this time Joe met up with a former British POW Frances or as he was known Bill Jones. Joe later escaped, and after the Italian capitulation started helping other POW's to escape into Northern Italy. My reason for finding Joe is that he might be able to assist with my long term project that can be viewed at: http://times-age.co.nz/weekly/2002/stuart.html
