Arizona was the home of 23 German POW camps, including one of the largest in the country. Camp Papago Park near Phoenix was the site of the greatest mass escape of POWs during the war. Historian Steve Hoza has interviewed many of the former prisoners, US camp personnel and farmers that used the POWs for labor. Come and hear what they all have to say about this time in Arizona history. There will be videos shown, as well as POW clothing and other artifacts. Register: 480-488-2286.
