Abstract

This site has been created by the International Committee of the Red Cross to provide access to its archive of information about prisoners of war and civilian detainees during the First World War. Belligerent powers registered such detainees with the ICRC, meaning that the archive contains the name of some 5 million of the estimated 10 million such individuals. In addition to the database searchable by name, the site includes collections of postcards from camps, first-hand accounts, and documents related to detention. Postcard collections include France, Italy, Germany, North Africa, and the United Kingdom/British Empire. The site also has a French–language version.
