From Wyoming News Now:
The [Wyoming] state library just completed the digitization of 5 titles of German POW camp newspapers from World War 2.
Captured by allies in northern Africa, these prisoners were held in Wyoming, in several camps that were operational from 1942 to 1945.
“Its a great resource, for looking for anyone, for just general history for genealogy work, for Wyoming history. each newspaper had a little bit of unique information about it, what was around these cities and towns, at the time and some of these towns are no longer there,” said Travis Pollok- Digital Collections & Legislative Librarian, State Library
