Fort Devens Museum annual meeting and Italian POW program.
Between the years 1944 and 1946, over 5,000 German and Italian prisoners-of-war were held at Fort Devens. The Fort Devens Museum has memoirs, photographs and other items pertaining to the German prisoners but information about the Italians has been harder to identify.
On Saturday, June 15, at 1 p.m. at the Fort Devens Museum, historian Anne Marie Reardon will give a talk on the many Italian POWs that were imprisoned in Massachusetts during WWII.
The museum will be open, as part of its regular operating schedule, on that day from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Reardon’s presentation will be followed by the museum’s annual business meeting.
This program is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served. The museum is located on the third floor at 94 Jackson Road, Devens. For information call the museum at 978-772-1286.
