Title 024_POW Camp Carpenters
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 The Italian prisoners, they had to have them out working in the depot in different places. And so I would drive into the compound and pick up these Italian prisoners. They had an Italian lieutenant with them, and he could talk enough English that we could get by... He asked me questions and I agreed with him. One time I said, "Yes, that's okay." And he said "What is 'okay?' I had a hard time trying to explain what 'okay' meant. -Bergetta Grant
