During World War II, the United States set up prisoner of war camps to aid our British allies who were overwhelmed with prisoners in their own country. Arkansas hosted some of the camps because of its rural location, and the camps were set up in military bases to help reassure Arkansas citizens who were worried about the prisoners being on home soil. The Camp Robinson POW camp in North Little Rock housed German soldiers who lived a relatively comfortable life during their time at the camp.

The tours are available on all of the AHPP social media platforms and are archived on our YouTube channel:
