There are several mentions of the boys, Chris and Oswald Wolkenstein, in Alan Gill’s book “Interrupted Journeys”. Particularly interesting is the exact date they were released from Tatura Camp 2 to go to Xavier College in Melbourne – January 12th, 1942.
Many of the young, fit, refugee internees from the “Dunera” were released at this time, too, initially to pick the fruit harvest in the Goulburn Valley orchards, before they joined the Australian Army 8th Employment Company.
Benzion Patkin’s book “The Dunera Internees” mentions them on pages 65 and 82, as “the Counts Wolkenstein from Vienna”, and Cyril Pearl has mentioned them in his book, “The Dunera Scandal”, on pages 73,102 and 129-136 , the latter 8 pages are quoted from Oswald’s diary.
You should be able to find these books at your local library. Also, a very interesting account by Margaret Holmes , secretary of the Melbourne University Student Christian Movement, who helped the interned refugees from Britain, is quoted in “The Dunera Resource Book”, which is available for sale from the Jewish Museum in St.Kilda, Melbourne.
