Author: Haworth, Hilda
Abstract: Diary, September 1942 to December 1943, of Hilda Haworth, a resident of Guernsey during WWII who was deported by the German army to a POW camp in Dorsten, Germany and later transferred to the POW camp Lindele in Biberach, Germany. Discusses the daily life in the camp, including food and accommodations, being separated from her children, illnesses, entertainment, different gender roles within the camp, anxiety about children who were left behind, excitement about mail, parcels from the Red Cross, and hopes for the war to end quickly.Also included is a souvenir programme from the Lyric Theatre that outlines all of their variety show stars from 1942-1944. Possibly some connection to one of the groups that Hilda Haworth went to see during her time in the camp, as she notes that one of the variety shows was done by Mr. Williams, and one of the founders of the Lyric Theatre was Fred Williams, who research shows was absent from the Guernsey in 1944.
