Memories pleasant of Sycamore POW camp
SYCAMORE – Tom Brotcke still remembers the days of sharing his church with Nazi soldiers.
Those memories do not conjure up imagery of swastikas or Hitler, but of young men who seemed harmless while they worked the summer of 1945 at Sycamore Preserve Works during part of their time in a prisoner of war camp located where UpStaging now resides.
“They would sing the hymns in German while we sang in English,” Brotcke said. “It was pretty neat.”
