Camp 'W' exhibition showcases internees and locals 'rubbing together well'

Mon, 25 Jul 2016


Rushen Heritage Trust will hold an exhibition this week dedicated to the only married women's internment camp in the world.

In May 1940 the WW2 women's internment camp in Port Erin - Camp 'W' - received 3,025 German women; many with children.

The exhibition is a continuation from last year's event.

Hugh Davidson is from the trust and says the exhibition highlights how well the community and internees got along during wartime:
