The Florida Holocaust Museum is proud to present Humanity Beyond Barbed Wire: Hitler's Soldiers in the Sunshine State. The exhibit opens on July 21, 2012.
On view July 21 - October 27, 2012
The Florida Holocaust Museum created exhibition is based on a book by Robert Billinger entitled Hitler's Soldiers in the Sunshine State. It illustrates the principles of a democratic nation and the humane treatment of enemy combatants during WWII.
A history of hate caused millions of deaths during the Holocaust. However, the treatment of German POWs in the United States during World War II created an obvious contrast as many former German POWs looked back on their experiences as positive ones.
