Canada captured and housed Nazi POWs during World War II. In twenty five camps across Canada, German soldiers spent years of their life. Filmmaker Eva Colmers explores her father’s story: a man who spent four years in a POW camp in Alberta. And loved it.

Watch as Theo Melzer, along with other POWs, recount how their lives were changed by the unexpected respect and dignity they received at the hands of their Canadian captors. Watch The ENEMY WITHIN.
