Schloss Wurzach: A Jersey Child Interned by Hitler
Schloss Wurzach: A Jersey Child Interned by Hitler – Gloria’s Story, this new book was written by Susan Symons, whilst doing research for her other projects met Gloria Bullen, née Webber, who at the age of 10 was interned in Bad Wurzach with her parents and siblings, fascinated by the story Susan wrote this book. It is an interesting view of being interned through the eyes of a 10 year old girl.
“In the early hours of 16 September 1942 there was a knock on the door of ten-year-old Gloria Webber’s home in Jersey. The caller was a local official with bad news. Gloria,
her parents and four younger children were all on a list of Jersey civilians to be deported to Germany on the direct orders of Hitler. Gloria and her siblings, with hundreds
of other Jersey children, spent the next years of their childhood interned in an old castle in the south of Germany, called Schloss (the German for castle) Wurzach.”
