I literally had no clue that the Chicago area was home to POW camps during WW II! So glad to have learned more from +Edie Rubinowitz
and +Logan Jaffe
, who created a map of where the camps were and dug up interesting tales about the prisoners and camp life. Definitely worth the short read and engaging listens. http://goo.gl/MUNkv7
This photo of a prisoner burial at Fort Sheridan was provided to +WBEZ
by the Highland Park Historical Society.
