Comments

In the current suburbs of Linz, Upper Austria, a camp was set up as soon as 1914 for Russian POW. It became an internment camp for civilians after 1915, mainly for Italians from the conflict area in South Tyrol, Trentino, for italian speaking Austrians and political prisoners of the double Monarchy.
