Early Second World War internment camps in the UK, 1939-40

25 April 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Online Talk

Dr.Rachel Pistol will be giving a talk which focuses on the often overlooked temporary camps on the British mainland which most of the so-called ‘enemy aliens’ passed through before being sent to the Isle of Man in 1940. Internees were held in prisons, holiday camps, racecourses, derelict mills and many other makeshift locations from anything from a few days to several months, and conditions were often terrible. This talk is being hosted by a US-based Isle of Man Internment Group, but is open to all. To book, contact Tony Hausner
