May 1940 Hermann Fechenbach is interned in England

In May 1940 Hermann Fechenbach was interned in various camps and finally in the “Hutchinson Camp’ in Douglas on the Isle of Man, released in February 1941. It was while at the Hutchinson Camp that Hermann started “My impressions as a Refugee” as set of 21 linocuts as a record of the years of persecution in Germany under the Nazi party and his interment in England.

Hermann's Print "Interned" this is one of the most used of Hermann's images. It is of Bury and not of of the Isle of Man, but was cut while there, thus the confusion.
