Product Description

Internment Camp Memorial Shrine. At the beginning of WWII Mussolini and Hitler joined forces and declared war on Great Britain and France. As a result, all German and Italian migrants living in the allied countries were categorised as enemy aliens, and subsequently interned in camps. One of these camps was situated in Harvey with about 1000 internees. One of the prisoners instigated the construction of an altar made of stone, depicting the Catholic faith. The shrine still stands today and was enclosed in a chapel in 1992. It is believed to be the only road side shrine of its kind in Australia. Housed in the chapel are several sculptures and an "Australia Remembers" static display. The shrine is a popular tourist attraction depicting an important part of our history.
