World War II, prisoners of war, and the Battle of Bowmanville. When it began as a boys training school in the 1920s, it was considered to be the most progressive institution of its kind in Canada; World War II brought a new importance to school when it was used as Prisoner of War Camp 30, housing German prisoners of war captured by the Allies. On February 18, Dr. Amy Barron of the Clarington Museums will delve into the fascinating history of Bowmanville’s Camp 30.
