Voices From the Fortress
The Extraordinary Stories of Australia's Forgotten Prisoners of WarBook - 2007
Paul Rea uncovered an extraordinary story of an Australian ex-prisoner of war who had been illegally thrown into a Nazi concentration camp called Terazin in Czechoslovakia, now known as the 'Living Grave'. This soldier was stripped of any protection offered by his national and military status and was punished for doing no more than his duty: escaping from a POW camp. An investigation tracked down more than a dozen Australian and New Zealand veterans who broke a long silence to speak about their horrendous ordeals. These soldiers British counterparts were awarded Nazi war crime compensation, for the ANZACs, all they received was denial by their Army and their governments. Voices from a Small Fortress is a record of extraordinary experiences of the men who survived.
