Title 055_POW Camp Library
Description A collection of photographs and oral history quotes that document the history of the Prisoner of War camp at Defense Depot Ogden that opened in 1943 and closed in 1946. The oral histories were conducted with widows of German and Italian POWs, former guards, and community members that worked with the POWs.
Image Captions He was saying to me that they were easy going with the Italian prisoners. They took them on buses to the movies here in downtown Ogden because they were not fighting the Italians. But they were still at war with the Germans so they were more under protection . . . but he met other people that worked out there. . . . He had opportunities to study there. He had all kinds of books that he was able to read. -Eleanor Kososik
