Does anyone know if there were restrictions on writing letters when Poland was
occupied by the Nazis?
In occupied by the Germans Poland, there was a German Post (Deutsche
Post Osten) so the letters had to be adressed in German.

The letters were censured, so it is very likely that there was a limit of size.
(I have a letter >from that time, written on both sizes of A4 format)

Maybe now it sounds unthinkable, but also owning or listening to the
radio receiver by not-Germans was strictly forbidden and could couse
death penalty or deportation to the concentration camp.
