Description
 
When nearly 7,000 people with German and Austrian heritage were detained by the Australian authorities following the outbreak of World War I, Paul Dubotzki, a talented Bavarian photographer, was among them.

These unlikely prisoners-of-war came from all walks of life Ė merchant sailors, visiting academics ó and many, including beer baron Edmund Resch and acclaimed orthopaedic surgeon Dr Max Herz, had lived in Australia for decades.

In The Enemy at Home Dubotzkiís rediscovered photographs and never-before-published excerpts from inmatesí diaries reveal what life was like inside the Holsworthy, Berrima and Trial Bay internment camps. Dubotzkiís stunning images offer a rare and surprising snapshot of the theatrical events, small businesses and sports that boosted the menís spirits.
