Karl sat decorating cakes behind a barbed-wire fence. It was not the future he had imagined when he first arrived in Australia.
Karl practised his confectionery craft throughout his internment.
Internees kept themselves busy by participating in woodworking and drawing classes, and theatre productions. Special currency was issued for use within the camps.
