Historical information

The ring was made for the donor by her father in Camp 3, Tatura.
The Wied family were settled in Palestine upon the beginning of WWII. Being of German nationality, they were considered a threat to security by Allied forces & were interned in temporary camps, before being shipped to Australia.
In Australia they were interned in Camp 3, Tatura, a family camp for enemy nationals.
Many of the internees came with few possessions. This item is just one of the handmade domestic items fashioned in the camp from largely scrap materials to give some home comforts in the initially barren surroundings of the camps, particularly to those interned with families and young children.
