The Extraordinary Stories of Australia's Forgotten Prisoners of War

Book - 2007
Rate this:
Paul Rea uncovered the extraordinary story of an Australian ex-prisoner of war who had been illegally thrown into a Nazi concentration camp called Terazin in Czechoslovakia, now known as the 'Living Grave'. This soldier was stripped of any protection offered by his national and military status and was punished for doing no more than his duty: escaping from a POW camp. Further investigation tracked down more than a dozen Australian and New Zealand veterans who broke a long silence to speak about their horrendous ordeals. These soldiers' British counterparts were awarded Nazi war crime compensation, but all the ANZACs receiveved was denial by their Army and their governments. VOICES FROM A SMALL FORTRESS is a record of the extraordinary experiences of the men who survived.
