Re: Legal source for UK Internments

Just remembered that a group was created a few years ago, but never really became active. I will see about doing that.  I will post more about that later.  In the meantime, here is some info that I just shared with that group. Please email me at thausner@... if interested in joining that group or send an email to interned-on-iom@... and ask to join.  

For what its worth, my parents left Vienna shortly after the anschluss.  They met in London, married and in 1939 were interned for a year in separate camps on the Isle of Man.  My father in Mooragh and my mother in Balmoral.  My mother kept my father's letter and I have donated copies to the Manx Museum as well as the USHMM and Yad Vashem.  
Here are photos of some of the letters at the USHMM
Here are my photos from the trip that we made to the Isle of Man in 2016.  
There is duplication between these albums
Here is their material on the WWII internment camps
The Manx Museum had a very moving exhibit on the camps when we visited in 2016 but do not know if still there.  A book "Living with the Wire" Edited by Yvonne Cresswell who was also the staff coordinator of the exhibit.  The book is available on Amazon.
