Turkish Prision Camps


YOZGAD (YOZGAT or YUZGAT): This prison camp was located in the Vilayet of Angora in central Anatolia in Asia Minor. The town lay one hundred miles east of Angora and the Turks incarcerated British officers and enlisted men captured at Kut-al-Amara, as well as Russian POW's from the Caucasian Front, in houses inside the city. Prisoners faced a serious influenza epidemic in Yozgad in 1918.
