Refugee Internment – The Tatura WW2 camp

https://ergo.slv.vic.gov.au/explore-history/australia-wwii/home-wii/refugee-internment#:~:text=The%20two%20main%20camps%20for,designed%20to%20carry%201500%20passengers.

Some of the other internees, such as the prisoners of war, were loyal to the Nazi regime. One such group in the Tatura camp secretly produced their own magazine called Brennessel (‘Nettle’), complete with cartoons, advertisements and news about the war.

Eventually the Jewish refugees were re-classified as ‘friendly aliens’ and released from the camps. Many of them joined the Australian army, or remained in Australia and became successful and prominent citizens after the war.
