Rockwell City, Iowa
150 Nazis Visited Our City Tuesday
Several Local Men Talk With Them
Fifty nazis were in Rojckwell €ity Tuesday!
But—don't worry, they were well guarded by a squad of armed U. IS. soldiers. A few local citizens, who could talk German exchanged a few words with some of the men.
The nazis were U. S. prisoners of war, and were being transferred from Clarinda to the prison camp at Algona. They were taken in the invasion of southern Italy, and were all healthy looking young men, indicating that they were doing well on the prison care of the past few months.
All of them were Austrians, and most of them could be classified as blonde types. They were being transported in three open army trucks, with a fourth truck carrying their duffle bags of clothing. The caravan was followed in the rear by an army command car whijch was manned by armed guards plus the armed guard riding in J each truck.-----/
