You Are There 1943: Italian POWs at Atterbury

In one of our most moving You Are There exhibits to date, talk to Italian prisoners of war in the chapel they built at Camp Atterbury.

You'll step into a recreation of the still-existing "Chapel on the Meadow" as POWs are completing the paintings on the walls and marbleizing the altar. They can tell you about the symbolism of the art, World War II and their living conditions. In addition to the prisoners, you may come across American soldiers, including Chaplain Maurice Imhoff and Lt. Col. John Gammel, commanding officer of the internment camp.
