Maine’s German POW Camps during WW ll

$1250

with David Greenham

Calendar Oct 17, 2018 at 6:30 pm, runs for 1 week

Inspired by the HHRC’s exhibit Maine Boys Overseas, German Boys in Maine, this program tells the story of German prisoner of war camps from 1944 to 1946. The camps were located in Houlton, Spencer Lake, Seboomook, and Indian Township. The story is a fascinating piece of Maine history made all the more remarkable by the fact that we welcomed our enemy soldiers in the state while we were still at war with the Nazis. Suitable for Grades 6 and up. Parent must accompany children.
