Experiences of War : Prisoners of War

Prisoner of War Appeal Badge The State Library's collections reflect the experiences of South Australians who were prisoners of war, captured by enemy forces whilst serving overseas, or were deemed 'enemy aliens' and held in Australia during wartime. South Australians also interacted with prisoners of war from enemy countries who were shipped to Australia for imprisonment but allowed out of the camps to work.
