The enemy at home: German internees in WW1 Australia

Banner "The enemy at home"

The virtual exhibition The enemy at home: German internees in WW1 Australia has been created by the New South Wales Migration Heritage Center. The exhibition shows photographs taken by the German photographer Paul Dubotzki (1891-1962) who was interned between 1915 and 1919. His work from this period, some 1,200 images, was only detected in Germany in 2007. The German internees were either captured by the Australian forces in Asia or they were Australians from German descent. A selection of images is shown in a gallery. The exhibition provides information on the Australian home front, about daily life in the camps and  the aftermath of the First World War. There are also educational resources and a small links selection. The website can only be viewed in English.
