Description

This educational module explores the varied experiences of prisoners of war (POWs) during the Second World War (1939-1945). Some POWs received respect and mercy from their captors, in accordance with the Geneva Convention, while others soon found themselves as victims in one of the most horrific genocides in modern history. This exhibit endeavors to chronicle their experiences.
