Notes
b&w, outdoors, German prisoners of war standing in front of wire fence, next to a car. Some wearing long coats, all wearing cap, on ground are baskets of potatoes. Narrative: Following the Canadian war declaration on 1939-09-03, more than a dozen of internment camps were set up across the country. Camp No. 40 opened in Farnham, Quebec on 1940-10-11. In 1942-12, the camp was used to contain German officers as the Geneva Convention stated that enemy officers were to be held in the different facilities as other ranks. Over 200 POWs were held in Camp Farnham. After the war, in 1946, the prisoners were repatriated.
