Hi Steve,

My name is Laura Opel, and I am trying to find out some info. about The POW camps in Tennessee. My father-in-law was a prisoner of War from Germany during WWII. I am not sure of which camp he Stayed at, and am trying to find out if any of the camps have lists

Of the prisoners. Do you know the answer to that question? His name was Hans Opel. My daughter, who is a 5th grader in Louisiana, would love to do her Social Studies Fair project on the camp that her grandfather stayed atů

That is the reason we are searching for information.

Thank you,

Laura J

 

Through further research, we have found out that my father-in-law, Hans Opel, was a POW in Camp Crossville, TN during WWII. We visited the

Camp last year, as well as the town.

Thank you for your interest. I wish you luck in finding more information.
