In 1939, The Australian Government passed legislation to enable the internment of civilians who might represent a threat to national security in the event of war. Using records from the National Archives, Dr Klaus Newmann tells the stories of 10 people of various ethnic origins and political beliefs who were interned during the war and discusses the profound effect internment had on their lives. This book is a compelling and fascinating account of a little known chapter in Australian History.
