"KOBE HOUSE" Osaka #2
American Liberation Roster

Main         Main Camp List      Main Kobe House     About Us

Source: This list was compiled by Roger Mansell from the original identity cards completed by each prisoner at time of rescue. A number of men, e.g., Marine Robert Newton, were rescued from nearby Japanese civilian prisons by the Kobe House prisoners. The ID cards contain additional information not shown herein such as home towns and other comments. Other men "drifted" into this camp from various areas after the surrender but, although not an official "resident" of this camp, may be listed on the roster.
