Upon the outbreak of war, in September 1939, the lives of some 70,000
Germans and Austrians residing in the UK changed overnight as they were
classified as enemy aliens, and any individual suspected of spying or
considered to be a potential threat to Britain were subject to civilian
internment. The webinar looks at tribunal official papers, individual
internees and the camps they were placed.
