Title 097_POW Camp Taxi
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 I was a taxi driver... It was the Utah General Depot then. They were just the depot taxis.... Sometimes if the United States officers had to leave the depot, I would have to get a permit and drive them into Ogden or wherever they had to go. Otherwise I stayed right in the depot... My taxi was big enough for the driver and then it had two seats behind that. So I could take about six or seven prisoners at a time. - Bergetta Grant
