“At least once we were in the camp the bombing and shelling finished. You could keep quite busy if you wanted. There was communal work, like cleaning our quarters, or teaching and helping out at the camp hospital. Queuing for food and cooking took up time – there were 600 people in our block to feed in turn. Lectures were given on every subject you could imagine and school was organised for the children. There were lots of religious services and concerts. I used to write – or adapt – plays for children. Our Peter Pan was something of a hit with the internees.”
