Dear GAHC Members and Friends,

From time to time GAHC benefits from the efforts of students at our area colleges and universities, and when possible we take pride and enjoyment in sharing their efforts with you. In that vein we hope you will enjoy reading the paper "Enemies Among US...Or Were They?" by Amanda Wellhouse. The focus of this research by Amanda , a student at Augustana College, was to learn and share more about the German POW camps in Iowa during World War II, focusing particulary on the main base camp at Algona, Iowa. Amanda read a great deal about the camp, using both primary and secondary sources. She also traveled to the Algona camp to enrich her knowledge and gain a deeper perspective for the project. She continued her on-site research to additional camp sites in Clarinda, Eldora, Charles City, Muscatine, Clinton and Waverly, making use of local materials available from these visits.

We salute Amanda's efforts by sharing them with you, our valued members and friends.  You can view her paper on our website.


Janet Brown-Lowe

Executive Director
