German P.O.W. Camp No. 6 (“Outcamp Litchfield Park”):
This old POW camp north of Luke AFB was still present as of 2004 on the SW corner of Olive and Cotton Lanes.
Three of the apparent German barracks were still standing, as was a warden’s house or large, period residence. The Germans (and some Italians) were made to work the cotton fields in the desert heat until war’s end. This camp had been used as migrant worker housing for a long time after the war and we found an old Mexican silver coin, but no German paraphernalia…
As of January, 2006 the camp was almost completely demolished for new housing (or because it was an eyesore).
Thanks to Mike Hoza's article in the Litchfield Historical Society newsletter for information about the POW camp.
