Matthew Carter is the Executive Director of the Dakota County Historical Society. During World War II, more than 400,000 prisoners of war were sent to the United States after being captured. Prisoners of war were sent across the country where they were placed in camps for the duration of the war. The prisoners were used to offset the labor shortage, working within the communities they were housed and eventually returning home
after the war’s conclusion. This presentation will explore the history of the German POW camps that were prevalent throughout Minnesota, including New Ulm.

Please RSVP by November 4th, call 233-2616 or email education@browncountyhistorymn.org.
