The Americans were housed in many different cities and towns throughout Sweden. I believe the camp you are speaking of is Loka Brunn,, which is located just north of Karlskoga and southeast of Filipstad. Loka Brunn was and still is an award winning health spa. You can read stories and see pictures of Loka during WWII at

I'm not sure if this is a question i had asked about a year ago or if it is from another person. My father was interned in Sweden during WWII and would like to go back to visit. He can't remember the name of the town but it was near Karlstad. He said it had a lodge w/cabins on a lake and supposed to have been the summer home of the King and Queen. We have gotten some information that it is now a resort but still don't have the name. Any help would be appreciated. thanks, carol

I do not know the name of the town but i have something that might help. is the email to Karlstad Municipality they might be able to help.

If that doesn't work try contacting the ministry of foreign affairs im adding a link to their website(in English ofcourse) there you can find contact information ,phonenumbers and stuff like that.

Good luck

I have found some information, there was an internation camp called �xnered near the city V�nersborg( takes around 5 minutes by train) its pretty close to Karlstad but on the other side of the lake V�nern.

i will post a link to a map of the lake where you can se Karlstad on the north side and V�nersborg on the south side in the left corner of the map.

The last information i gave might not be the right place from what ive read there was 2 camps where foreign soldiers where interned these camps was L�ngmora and Smedsbo.

Smedsbo is not that far from Karlstad either its in Falun i will post a link with another map.

What were the camps like the one in Colorado called that held Japanese Americans during World War 2 called?

Internment Camps. Whenever you go to war, historically, citizens of the enemy nation are "interned", to keep them from acts against the nation. Some Germans and Italians were also interned at the beginning of the war, but not so many. There were many times more persons of German or Italian birth or descent in the US than there were those of Japanese birth or descent, and they could not all be interned. Diplomats of the new enemy are also usually interned, but a way is usually found to send them home in exchange for our own diplomats, similarly interned in the enemy nation. Neutral countries also intern any members of combatant enemy forces straying into their territory. Thus, during the war Sweden and Switzerland both became home to aviators, of both sides, who had been able to nurse damaged airplanes into neutral territory, to avoid becoming POWs (and probably some who went there to get out of the war). Internment in a neutral nation was "for the duration" of the war. The Soviet Union (Russia) also interned American fliers whose planes were damaged bombing Japan, and who flew to relatively nearby Vladivostok, because Russia was neutral as far as Japan went, until the very last week of the war. The Russians kept the B-29 bombers these airmen flew into Russia though, took them apart and reverse engineered a copy, called the Tu 4, which became Russia's first nuclear bomber.
