Zoominar on Indian PoWs

Zoominar on Indian PoWs

On Sunday 31 October 2021 we are continuing the series of our successful Zoominars with an event that we hope will have great appeal. Because our guest speakers are in three different time zones (US, Italy and India), we are scheduling this event at 4pm UK time.

This Zoominar will reveal an area of the history of Allied prisoners of war in Italy that is only now beginning to be explored. Three speakers will narrate and illustrate different aspects of the story of Indian PoWs in Italy, allowing us to contrast their experiences with those of other Allied prisoners and escapers. An Italian historian will describe his discovery of fascinating photographs and information from Italian archives; a professor of art will show her research in the subcontinent on the story of Indian PoWs in Italy; and the grandson of an Indian escaper will recount how his grandfather was sheltered by Italians for many months and how the Indian and Italian families were reunited after the war.
