Island of Dan, P oW camp - Danholm, Strasland

My father has asked me to escort him on a trip to see the island of Dan, Danholm for his 70th birthday as his father/my grandfather spent a relatively happy,peaceful time there in the first world war as a PoW.

Does anyone know of any place, musuem or local knowledge about the camp, the PoW stories from then that i may look up when i arrive this summer?

Dänholm island



There is the Geman Maritime Museum Nautineum on this island.


And the navy museum Dänholm


This museum covers the history of the island. But while the PoW camp is listed in the history timetable, there is nothing mentioned about it on the exhibition pages. You can of course ask them directly


Apart from the two museums there is the customs authority of Stralsund on the island.

A report with a bit about PoW on Dänholm
