PESARO - An Italian bank clerk has received a postcard sent by his father from the Nazi concentration camp where he was interned 60 years ago, a local daily reported Wednesday.

The yellowed postcard was delivered to 51-year-old Roberto Santini by a town mayor, who had purchased it from an antiques stand in Fano after recognising the name of the addressee, Il Resto del Carlino reported.

"Dear parents, please be well, I am fine here and can't wait to get back and spend some time with you," Adriano Santini wrote in his postcard, mailed from a German concentration camp on 14 July 1944.

Roberto, whose father died 15 years ago, said he immediately became very emotional upon recognising the handwriting.
