Series 7: Prisoner of war and internment camp concerts
< Previous Record | Next Record >
This series includes items made by prisoners of war for concerts held in German POW camps. At Steinhorst the prisoners produced decorative programs for each weekly concert held on Sundays. These were created with ink that they had made themselves. Included in this series is a photo of officers who produced a performance of the play Review.
Another interesting collection of items are those from the German internment camps at Trial Bay and Holdsworthy. The programs in this collection are postcard size items, most in black and white. Some are in colour. All show a very strong graphic style which make them most attractive.
