Sunday October 1 at Weingarten Vineyards

One of Missouri’s main POW camps was in Weingarten, Mo. Located in Ste. Genevieve County, approximately 70 miles south of St. Louis, this facility was unique in that is was the only main camp dedicated to holding Italian POWs. The camp had capacity of 5600 men, so it was a major operation.

We’re going back to this historic area with a program on Sunday, October 1, at the terrific Weingarten Vineyards, just down the road from the Weingarten camp’s actual location. It will be great to be with the terrific people there and I’m looking forward to it very much.
