The Footprints of Italian Prisoners of War  project is a free service.

The research project is now an international community project with contributions from Italian and Australian families in 15 countries.  The website operates as a ‘virtual’ museum. Every ‘donation’ the museum grows this history.  Items such as photographs, documents, letters and memoirs, are valuable relics of this history.

You can help keep this project going with a purchase of Walking in their Boots as an eBook copy via Kobo.  While Walking in their Boots has a Queensland focus, much of the information is relevant to all Italian prisoners of war in Australia.

Contact me if you would like to contribute to this project:

  • do you have stories, memories and/or photos of  Italian Prisoners of War working on your family’s farm during World War 2
  • did your Nonno or Bis Nonno work on farms in  Australia
  • did your Nonno or Bis Nonno return to Australia after the war to make Australia their home
  • was your father or grandfather  army personnel who worked in the Prisoner of War Control Centres,  Prisoner of War Hostels  or Prisoner of War Camps
