What does this mean?

Dear Diane,
what a well made historical thing you have, it's made of oak tree and is polish, it can easily be made by a prisoner of war, but we doubt whether it is Jewish as they do not celebrate Christmas, that's a thing that will be easy to sell to a World War II collector for example on Ebay
