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).

Particular prisoners

The total number of men who had been interned in the camp of Ile Longue was approximately 5000. From this group, emerge a few individuals who seem to have given this camp its specific character as to its rich cultural life, and its particular spirit.

Who were these men ? It is largely due to the camp journal Die Insel-Woche that we know the names of the most symbolic of them. In some cases, it was possible to complete these names with biographical information that goes beyond individual administrative records . The following particular prisoners are subject to a special notice, or are mentioned by name in another article.
