Napa P.O.W. Camp

At the request of Great Britain, over 700 POW camps were built within the USA to help alleviate the overcrowding of British camps. On August 14, 1945, three months after Germany surrendered and the day before Japan surrendered, 250 prisoners were received at Camp Napa located on the Silverado Trail just north of Yountville. This was a branch facility of Camp Beale. Prisoners performed labor on surrounding farms and were paid $.80 per day. Local citizens often attended social activities in camp. At war's end, most prisoners repatriated to Germany. Many returned to the USA to renew acquaintances with their former "employers", start families, launch new careers, and become citizens.
