Paradox in a POW Camp
The Souvenirs of unlikely friendship.
Opening January 15, 2022
Alexander Gallery

In March of 1943, while war raged in Europe, 20 year old Ann Cockrell began work at the recently completed prisoner-of-war camp southeast of Hereford, Texas. Serving as the secretary to the military commander of the camp hospital, the young Hereford resident worked for three years with doctors and military officials, documenting activities within the camp, while getting to know many of the Italian prisoners held there. She could have simply ignored the men or even chosen to hate them due to the war. Instead, Ann and the men built lasting friendships through art, writing and interactions. The memories and mementos of the Hereford camp stayed with Ann Cockrell Osburn the remainder of her life, and here provide a window into a unique chapter in Panhandle history.
