An inglorious chapter — 2 Comments

  1. We did the same here to the few Japanese and some Italians who lived in Australia during the war and interred them in Western NSW at Cowra. There was a famous and bloody breakout. It was doomed to failure four Australian guards and 231 Japanese died, and 108 prisoners were wounded. It’s now the location of a UN Peace Bell and fantastic Japanese gardens. Sounds like you made much of your trip Ian.

  2. I enjoyed reading Snow Falling on Cedars.

    I remember Jack telling me how the local residents of Italian extraction in the UK were rounded up during WW11 and sent to the Isle of Man.
