Trinidad detention camp #general

Thomas F. Weiss

Dear fellow Jgenners,

I am researching a cousin's family that left Vienna around 1938 and I
am guessing that they went to England. In any case, they wound up in
a detention camp in Trinidad, British West Indies (BWI) around 1940.
They spent 1940-1945 in the detention camp, immigrating to the US in
1945. I am interested in two questions:

(1) Does anyone know where I can find general information on this
detention/POW camp or more generally on detention camps in the BWI? I
have searched the Internet and some academic libraries for information
and found only tangential references to such camps in the BWI.

(2) Does anyone know where I might be able to obtain lists of people
detained in camps in the BWI?

Many thanks for your help,
