Description

After the outbreak of war in September 1939, all Germans and Austrians in Britain became ‘enemy aliens’ and had to register with the police. Although most remained at liberty, in the summer of 1940, restrictions tightened and tens of thousands were interned. This lesson explores some of the effects that internment had on people’s lives.
