Prisoner of War Camps

During the Second World War, many thousands of soldiers, sailors and airmen were captured by the opposing sides. These prisoners of war (known as PoW's or PW's) were removed from front-line areas and interred in a variety of structures, from purpose-built camps, to castles, forts and industrial buildings. Some PoW's were treated cordially by their captors, while others were regarded as little more than expendable slave-labour.
This gallery features imagery of PoW camps in the UK, Germany and Japan.
