Sir: What a pity that Andy Paliunovas, winner of the pools, is unable to share one of the most memorable events of his life with his family ("Survivor of Nazi camp in record £2.3m pools win", 19 January). His story is a reminder that many people a re still unaware that the international Red Cross tracing service may be able to help them.

The Red Cross continues to reunite families torn apart by the events of the Second World War and other conflicts. Anyone who wishes to initiate an inquiry about a relative with whom contact was lost due to conflict should contact the international welfare department of the British Red Cross.

Yours faithfully, SANDRA SINGER Director of International Welfare British Red Cross London, SW1
