Karl Hanssen's Memoirs of his Wartime Experiences in Samoa and New Zealand 1915-1916, Hardback Book

Karl Hanssen's Memoirs of his Wartime Experiences in Samoa and New Zealand 1915-1916 Hardback

Edited by James N. Bade

Part of the Germanica Pacifica series

Description

Karl Hanssen's memoirs provide an invaluable outsider's view of life in New Zealand prisons and a unique perspective on German Samoa under New Zealand occupation.

In October 1915, Hanssen, manager of the DHPG, a large German copra production company, was sent from Samoa to New Zealand to serve a six-month sentence imposed by a New Zealand military court for bypassing war censorship regulations.

He served his sentence in a number of prisons in New Zealand, including two months in the high-security prison, Mt Eden. Hanssen's memoirs - in English translation and in the original German - are made available for the first time in this edition, which also features photos from his Samoan album and a comprehensive introduction by Bronwyn Chapman on the historical and political background.
