le camp d'internement 1914-1919
Le camp d’internés 1914-1919

Dieser Internet-Auftritt verfolgt das Ziel, möglichst viele Informationen über das Internierungslager auf der Ile Longue zusammenzustellen, damit Historiker und Nachkommen der Internierten sich ein Bild von den Realitäten dieses bisher wenig bekannten Lagers machen können - nicht zuletzt auch, um die bedeutenden kulturellen Leistungen der Lagerinsassen zu würdigen.

Le but de ce site est de prendre contact avec les familles des prisonniers allemands, autrichiens, hongrois, ottomans, alsaciens-lorrains... qui ont été internés, pendant la Première Guerre mondiale, dans le camp de l’Ile Longue (Finistère).

Captures on the ground

August 1st, 1914, all the churches of France ring their bells to announce the general mobilization. The first day of the mobilization is fixed on Sunday, August 2nd, day when posters announcing this mobilization bloom on the walls of France. The nationals of the enemy powers have until midnight to leave the country, while almost all trains are requisitioned for the movements of troops. From August 3rd, these foreigners must present themselves to the police which places them under house arrest. They are then forwarded to camps to be sorted out, in relative freedom, then, permanently interned in often improvised camps. Germans, Austrians, Hungarians,inhabitants of Alsace - Lorraine, and Ottomans are thus arrested, in France, Belgium, and Greece.
The Francophile Hungarian writer, Aladar Kuncz, who spends his summer holidays in France since many years, is surprised by the war in Carantec, near Morlaix. He describes his capture and his five difficult years of captivity in a book published in 1931: “The Black Monastery”.
