I saw this article and thought that at last they are looking into this subject of more prison camps all through Europe used by the Nazis than had previously been realised.

On the radio last week a man who survived a POW prison/camp in Dresden that not many knew about was talking of his experiences there. The prison guards had the English prisoners go help them dig out survivors after the allied 'carpet-bombing' of cities such as Dresden, Hamburg, Cologne etc. He spoke of the horror he experienced when they opened up, for instance, an underground city bomb shelter that was supposed to house a few thousand people to only find an underground lake of dark liquid - that was all that was left of them after the intense heat of the fire-storms the city suffered. The tens of thousands killed there can therefore only be estimated. He knew that these scare tactics of the British and allies on Germany were really war crimes. How could killing thousands of women, children and old people like this be justified he said. it made him weep!

Our previous Co-ordinator/Presiding Overseer grew up in the British Island of Jersey. The Nazis occupied Jersey and his family were under house arrest. His father Witnessed to the German guard sent to the house and they were both arrested and sent off on a ship. Our PO, as a 7 year old lad, would go to the harbour to see if his Dad had been brought back. His mother was put to forced labour and they eventually escaped to England to be with other relatives. Recently, secret documents were opened to reveal that his father was sent to a not well known POW camp in a German city, likely to be tried and executed. He was there when allies bombed the prison/camp and he was killed aged 27.
