13th Century Letters Returned to Poland

A collection of Papal letters, written as far back as the 13th century and discovered among the belongings of a Wisconsin WWII vet, have been returned to their proper owner: the Polish State Archives.

The seventeen letters written by several popes were believed to have been taken from Wroclaw in south-western Poland as a war souvenir. "We are very, very grateful - these letters are of great value to us," said Wladyslaw Stepniak, deputy director of the Polish national archives.
