Internment



Arguably we treated people in internment camps and prisoner of war camps better than the Nazis treated inmates of their prison camps, the concentration and death camps. However, we were still taking away human freedom and were depriving people of their normal living conditions.
Thankfully, Renate and Kathe Edler were not interned. They merely became Class B enemy aliens. Clara Lehrs was interned, with a tragic result.
Some German Jews were interned in Britain. Many of them later joined our forces.

Was it right to intern German Jews during World War II?
Can an internment camp be made humane?
