  7. Captive Samurai: Japanese WWII Prisoners of War in Iowa

    July 18, 2019, 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM @ Newton Public Library

    As part of a relatively quiet and underpublicized government program, thousands of WWII enemy soldiers were brought to Iowa as prisoners of war. What began as an experiment eventually led to more than 400,000 soldiers interned in the United States, including two camps in the state of Iowa.  In the second part of Professor Chad Timm's study on WWII POWs in Iowa, he discusses the unique experiences of Japanese prisoners of war in Iowa, including community relations, life in the camps, and the first arrivals of Japanese prisoners at Camp Clarinda in early 1945. Camp Clarinda was one of only two camps in the entire United States to house Japanese soldiers. Those who attended his presentation on German POWs won't want to miss part two! This program is sponsored by Humanities Iowa and is free and open to the public.
