Notes "An extremely rare programme of which only a handful of examples can have survived. A programme of the celebrations staged by German and Austro-Hungarian internees at the Liverpool internment camp, west of Sydney at the end of January 1919. The events included a concert with orchestral, choral, dramatic and gymnastic performances; a Catholic service; communal singing, and an informal 'Kaffee und Kuchen' in the gymnasium. The internment camp for enemy aliens at Holsworthy, near Liverpool was the largest in Australia during World War One. This military base functioned as an internment camp between February, 1915 and 1919, housing almost 7000 men, most of whom were citizens of Germany or the various states of the Austro-Hungarian empire who were domiciled or working in Australia at the outbreak of the war. Some were employees of the German colonial administration or German colonial enterprises in New Guinea and the Pacific, captured by Australian forces towards the beginning of hostilities. Holsworthy was one of several such camps in New South Wales, others being located at Berrima, Trial Bay, Bourke and Molonglo." -- from the Bookseller
