Ws in more than fifty permanent camps in the European and Mediterranean theaters. Approximately 1,121 died but almost ninety-nine percent survived. Some still carry physical scars from their ordeals, and all of them bear psychological scars from what they saw, did, and had done to them. These men are true American heroes. After the war they returned to their homes, married and started families. All tried to put their past experiences behind them and get on with their lives. Many cannot talk about their experiences even to this day. Here are the stories of sixteen former POWs from Western Pennsylvania and Eastern Ohio as they relive their ordeals of more than fifty years ago in vivid detail. Listen to their stories of camp life and experience their sense of humor that endured through the worst of times. Hear stories of comradeship, perseverance, and patriotism. But most of all remember the sacrifices they made for the freedom we enjoy today.
