The Hut 9 Preservation Group, this web site
and the two websites given above are
dedicated to the history and research of the
Island Farm POW camp, the German POWs and
the ROF in Bridgend, interned during the
years 1938 -1948. Although the web sites
make reference to profiles of many POWs both
during WWI and WWII, our Group and the web
sites are not about the politics of Nazism.
The extensive use of photographs within
these web sites are done so for historical
purposes and should not be viewed as an
attempt to glorify the tragic and sad events
The web sites do not support in any way
those who would condone or embrace
individuals, groups and/or organisations
that are intolerant, racist or violent.
The web sites do not support or endorse
those that use the theme of WWII history to
further their own political agenda.
It is through education, study and research
that one may come to their own conclusions
about WWII and the German experience. Those
that do not attempt to do so are guilty of
ignorance. Only through honest, objective
and impartial research can one ever hope to
understand the plight of so many millions of
people during the Second World War.
The web sites are respectfully dedicated to
all those who suffered and died during the
most devastating war in human history, on
