Did you know that Rowville was the site of an Italian Prisoner of War Camp during World War II ? Knox resident and author of No Regard for the Truth, Darren Arnott, explored the history of the camp and the stories of some of the men interned in the camp. During his research he uncovered the story of a blossoming romance between a farmer’s daughter and an Italian prisoner of war who was shot and killed during an alleged escape attempt. Join Darren to hear about his research on the book, the controversy that followed the shooting and the history of Rowville’s Italian prisoners of war.

Note: an email will be sent to you with the Zoom link, closer to the time.
