Pow­er­ful vi­sion

Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine - - MASS OBSERVATION -

A su­perb web­site has been cre­ated, us­ing only three colours – black, white and khaki – which gives a pow­er­ful vis­ual co­her­ence, sober and re­strained, a model of its kind. It has sec­tions on the lo­cal com­mu­nity; the his­tory of the camp; life in the camp for the in­ternees, the mil­i­tary men and lo­cal civil­ians; and the sto­ries of in­di­vid­u­als. The pro­ject’s or­gan­is­ers are par­tic­u­larly anx­ious to learn more about the ex­pe­ri­ences of those in­volved in the camp. Now, a cen­tury on, there is no­body alive who re­calls it, but de­scen­dants of in­ternees, guards and lo­cal civil­ian work­ers may have sto­ries to tell and pho­to­graphs or doc­u­ments to share. There is, of course, close in­ter­est from mem­bers of the An­glo-Ger­man Fam­ily His­tory So­ci­ety, but any in­for­ma­tion that read­ers can pro­vide will be most wel­come.

Its won­der­ful sun­sets could not con­ceal the fact that thou­sands of our own cit­i­zens were in­car­cer­ated here
