Camp Algona POW Nativity - Dec. 18 and 23, 2023

Updated: Dec 8, 2023

Christmas is coming! The birth of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ resonates with individuals no matter their mark in life or status in life.

Nowhere is that more evident than in 1945, Algona, Iowa, where six German World War II Prisoners of War (POW) created 65 life-size Nativity figures made of cement on wooden frames.

Joanne interviews Marv Chickering about this fascinating story and one-of-a-kind scene, handcrafted by the POWs.

Take advantage this week of their holiday hours from 1-4 p.m. now through Saturday, December 23. The nativity is closed starting December 24 for winter.
