“prisoners of war history”
Camp Algona housed up to 10;000 German prisoners of war from 1944 to 1946. The 70-foot linear display tells the story of this camp and its effect on the military and civilians in Algona. Weapons exhibit; World War II uniforms and artifacts; and displays of poetry; paintings and woodcarvings.
It might seem bizarre that there would have been a POW camp in Iowa, but that's the kind of thing you'll learn here. Lots of WW2 artifacts, and really knowledgable volunteers. Worth a visit if you're into "untold" history.
