Gesher Galicia SIG #Galicia Formation of email group about Isle of Man Internment #galicia


Tony Hausner
 

Several of us have recently activated an email group about Internment
on the Isle of Man. This is primarily during World War II but also applies
to World War I since internment by the British occurred then as well.

In my case, my parents and other family members, all of whom were
Jewish, escaped >from Vienna shortly after the Anschluss, when the
Germans took over Austria in 1938. Most of my Viennese family
members escaped to England. However, a year later most of them were
labeled by their local boards as "enemy aliens' and spent as much as a
year in separate camps on the Isle of Man.

To join our group, please send an email to me at thausner@gmail.com .
