19 May, 7:30pm - 9:00pm
Explore the history of Loveday, the largest of the WWII Australian internment camps which held over 5000 civilian internees from all over Australia and the world. Located in the SA Riverland it was for a time perhaps the most multicultural location in Australia, with substantial numbers of Italians, Japanese, Germans and others. A primary point of focus will be German internees in the camp, with particular attention devoted to a group of several hundred men who had been arrested and detained in Persia before deportation to the Antipodes.
Peter Monteath curates the website www.lovedaylives.com, which provides insight into the history of Loveday and the biographies of those who spent time there.
