23 Pow and interment camps By: Forrest Benson

24 Pow camps description Five compounds separated by barbed wire fences. The main camp (Vorlager) included the infirmary, food and clothing storerooms. Compounds (Lagers) A, B & C contained Americans only. Compound D contained Americans and British. Men were housed in wooden huts, each hut containing 200 men. Most huts had three- tiered beds but some had no beds and men slept on the floor. None of the huts were properly heated. Latrine facilities were inadequate and there were no shower baths. There were two barbed wire fences ten feet high surrounding the camp. Between the two fences was another fence of rolled wire about four feet high. Fifty feet inside the wire fences was a warning wire. Prisoners could be expected to be shot if they crossed the warning wire. Posted at close intervals were armed guard towers with search lights. Guards with dogs patrolled the perimeters.

25 Interrogations Each prisoner was held in solitary confinement for a limited period of time - usually four or five days. During rush periods as many as five men were held in a cell. The interrogators used various methods in an effort to obtain operational information from the captured airmen. Most POWs gave only the information required by the Geneva Convention - Name, rank and serial number. After interrogation the men were sent to a transit camp and then to their established POW camp.

26 Escaping pow camp Escape attempts were started soon after Stalag 3 was established and reached a scale that was hardly reached by any of the other German POW camps. Numerous tunnels were started in the East and Center compounds and eventually in the North (British) and South (American) compounds. Most were soon discovered by the Germans. Almost everyone in all compounds were involved in one way or another in escape attempts. The major escape took place in the North (British) compound on 24 March It became known as "The Great Escape." A tunnel 336 feet in length, 30 feet below ground level, was constructed. Eighty prisoners made their way out and only three made it back to Great Britain. The rest were recaptured. Fifty of the escapees were executed by Gestapo firing squads.

27 Pow camps They were camps for prisoners of war. Many attempts to escape but only few made it out. The camps were not vary sanitary and clean.

In 1899, the first International Peace Conference was held in The Hague to elaborate instruments for settling crises peacefully, preventing wars and codifying rules of warfare.

31 In 1945, representatives of 50 countries met in San Francisco at the United Nations Conference on International Organization to draw up the United Nations Charter. The Charter was signed on 26 June 1945 by the representatives of the 50 countries.

40 April 1,1945-June 22,1945

41 What Happened? Americans fought the Japanese at the two islands of Iwo Jima and Okinawa which were both known as bloodbaths. The Americans won both battles but at a heavy loss losing over 19,000 men and having over 57,000 causalities.

42 Iwo Jima The Americans main object on Iwo Jima was to capture two airfields but the Japanese were dug in deep using bunkers and tunnels that went beneath the island. Even though the Japanese had the home field advantage, the Americans outgunned,outmanned and out planed the Japanese. Most people said it was a sure victory and they were correct. The Americans bombarded the island with bomber planes and battle ships killing very little Japanese soldiers. Then they sent soldiers with flamethrowers to clear the tunnels and trenches which wiped most of them out 5 American soldiers raising the flag on Mount Suribachi

43 Okinawa Okinawa was also known as Operation Iceberg. The Americans wanted to take Okinawa to use it as a base of operations for the main assault on Japan. Japanese were dug in like they were in Iwo Jima but they had hundreds of kamikaze planes to attack the US navy killing about 1,000 sailors. The US lost more than 12,000 troops and had 57,000 causalities. It was one of the most deadly battles of World War 2.

The untested uranium-235 gun-assembly bomb, nicknamed Little Boy, was airburst 580 meters (1,900 feet) above the city to maximize destruction; it was later estimated to yield 15 kilotons. Two-thirds of the city area was destroyed. And about 78,150 to 102,000 were killed as a result of the bomb.
