Prisoner of war camps were established in eighteen locations in North Carolina during World War II. One of the largest POW facilities was located at Camp Butner in Granville County, which held as many as 3,000 mostly German prisoners. These men were put to work on local farms. The camp authorities allowed the German prisoners to publish this weekly newspaper, Lager Fackel, (Camp Torch) to keep them occupied.
