About Enemy Aliens: the Dunera boys in Orange, 1941


In September 1940, more than 2000 “enemy aliens” were transported from Britain to Australia on board the HMT Dunera. Interned in camps in regional New South Wales and Victoria, the story of the Dunera boys, is an intrinsic part of the history of Australia in the Second World War and in its aftermath.


This exhibition, featuring never-before-seen artworks by the Dunera boys, tells the little-known story of the internees’ time at the Orange Showgrounds in 1941.
