Rowville’s Italian Prisoners of War

During WWII a Prisoner of War camp was set up in Rowville to intern the local Italian migrant population. Join local author Darren Arnott to hear the history and stories, the good, the bad and the ugly.

In March 1946, the war was over. The Italian prisoners of war who had been interned in camps around Australia were waiting to be returned home.

Join local author Darren Arnott as he shares his discoveries about the Rowville Camp. Allegations of assaults, reckless firing of weapons, drunkenness, stolen goods and possible murder.

Darren will have copies of his book “No regard for the truth” for sale.
