Historic Houses Trust new exhibition

The Enemy at home: German internees in World War 1 Australia.
Newly discovered photographs by internee Paul Dubotzki reveal what it was like to be interned in Australia during World War I.
During World War I nearly 7000 so-called ‘enemy aliens’ were interned in camps in New South Wales. One was young Bavarian photographer Paul Dubotzki whose remarkable photographs record the experience of internment from 1915 to 1919. In 2007 his entire archive was discovered in the small German town of Dorfen and it has been brought to Australia for the first time.
