Interned

Australia jailed 7000 ‘enemy aliens’ of German origin during World War 1.

Most of these were men. But 84 were children.

It’s 1914. The world is on the brink of war. Gretta, daughter of a German businessman, lives a privileged life in Singapore. Tilly, daughter of a German-born baker, lives a modest life in Brisbane. But the girls will spend the next four years together, in Australia. In an internment camp. Jailed.
