Kay Bell reminisces about the German POWs housed at a prison camp in Houlton during World War II.

It’s hard to imagine, but during World War II there were a handful of German P.O.W. camps in Maine. German soldiers were captured, brought to the states, and taken to places like Houlton. Kay Bell remembers. She says P.O.W.’s worked on her father’s potato farm.

Kay was recorded at the Houlton Historical Society in the fall of 2010.
