History
Ilag V Liebenau was an internment camp near W├╝rttemberg in Germany that operated during the Second World War from 1940-1945. It was set up by German authorities to hold allied citizens, predominantly women and children, living in occupied territory. The Red Cross provided food parcels to the internees, bulking out their food rations.
