(A November 1943 cover addressed to Henri Bloch at Norderney was offered at ... -weltkrieg.) Lager Norderney was one of 4 labour comps built by Organization Todt on Alderney in January 1942. In March 1943 control of this camp and its sister camp, Lager Sylt, passed to SS Baubrigade 1 and these camps were made sub-camps of KL Neuengamme. As such, these were the only German concentration camps operated in British territory. The sender's religious status is not totally clear to me. “The first French Jews arrived in Norderney in July 1943” ... ation-camp / Ken Lawrence reported that there were 800 of these Jewish deportees, “many married to Gentiles.” ... -7/page-9/ That Henri is writing to his wife in Paris suggests that he may have been one of these Jewish deportees with a Gentile wife. Lawrence further wrote: “The French Jews were ordered back to the European mainland in May 1944, destined for the Neuengamme concentration camp. Belgian resistance fighters intercepted their transport, blew up the railway line, freed the captives, and protected them at Dixmuide until liberation” It is known that Henri Bloch survived the war. ... f/http.pdf (page 8).
