12-24-1945 tunnel at Papago Park POW camp

1946 Papago Park

For the WWII buffs out there, I found pictures my mom took of the tunnel dug out by the German POW’s at the Papago Park camp in Arizona.

The story about the prisoner’s escape, complete with photos of the escapees and news stories,  is at https://rantingalong.wordpress.com/2015/02/02/the-great-escape-by-25-nazis-12-1944/).

This is a picture of the POW camp:

Sometimes, pictures are worth 1000 excuses (As in:  Tunnel?  What tunnel?).
