History Festival : Remembering Loveday Internment Camp – Barmera

The Loveday Internment Camp was established near Barmera in the Riverland during the Second World War to detain mainly German, Japanese and Italian internees. Join us at the Soldiers Memorial Hall in Barmera for an event exploring the experiences of those detained at Loveday, how those experiences are remembered, and what those memories mean for community members today. Following contributions by a panel of speakers, participants will have the opportunity to share their stories and indicate their interest in a future collaborative research project.

Presented by Flinders University, Migration Museum, Berri Barmera Council

Venue: Soldiers Memorial Hall, Barwell Ave, Barmera
