Davos Platz


After Camp Moloney in Adelboden became too crowded, the Swiss sent American officers to Davos starting on June 24, 1944. Davos, a ski town in the eastern region of Switzerland, sets in a valley with one road and a railroad passing through. Davos has four sections, Davos-Platz being the section where American internees were lodged. It is interesting to note the American internees were lodged just down the street from the German embassy. Inevitably, on the 4th of July the Americans shot fireworks at the German embassy, and later several American internees stole the large swastika from the building.
