Hello - My husband’s grandparents wrote over 200 letters >from Nazi
occupied Amsterdam. They wrote >from margin to margin of the paper
and I don’t know if this was because of a rule or they were trying to
save paper or what the reason.

I know there was a special Red Cross correspondence form which
specified the number of words. They only used this once as I think it
was a cumbersome process and took longer than regular mail.

I’m interested in knowing if there were rules for correspondence between
Amsterdam and USA. Were their limits on the number of pages used?
Was regular correspondence regulated by the Red Cross or did the
Nazis have another way of proclaiming the rules for correspondence?

Thanks to anyone who has this information or can point me to a resource.
