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 firstname.lastname@example.org .
