Prisoner of war records go online

Breaking News

Records of more than 100,000 British prisoners of war captured during World War II are being published online.

The lists, accessible for a fee, were compiled by the German military authorities under the 1929 Geneva Convention.

They contain details of British and Commonwealth personnel held in Germany, Austria and Poland in WWII.

The records have only now been made public and the website claims to be the first in the world to publish them.
