Event description
FREE One Day SYMPOSIUM to explore the amazing story of German Prisoners of War at Donington Hall and Kegworth Camps 1915-1919

About this Event

The Symposium will present research findings inspired by a unique collection of glass plate negatives and prints from the collection of W W Winter Ltd., Photographers of Derby. The images show some of the high-profile officer prisoners, alleged in Parliament to enjoy ‘champagne lifestyles’. Research has revealed the politics behind their internment, as well as new information about the men themselves, the camps and their organisation and the attempts made by some of the prisoners to escape.

Supported by The National Lottery Heritage Fund.
