“FOR YOU THE WAR IS OVER”:
Researching Allied Prisoners of War in Europe during the Second World War.
Guest speaker: Maureen West
Using her experiences in tracing her father’s ‘missing’ years Maureen will explore the records that are now available to reconstruct the lives of these men from all around the world who spent so many years in prisons far from their homelands.
Many of these men never spoke of their experiences, or if they did, it was of the ‘good’ times, not of the tragic and, in some cases, horrific things that they witnessed.
