Comments + Vindi details In 1943, 32 Irish-born British Merchant seamen were removed from their POW camp. When they refused a Gestapo “request” to work for the Germans, they were sent to an Arbeitserziehungslager and were not seen again until 1945. Harry Callan was one of these men. When in his 80’s, he realised that their story had disappeared from official records, he was determined to give his comrades recognition. This is Harry’s memoir.
