At least it was for those that were imprisoned in Canada nearly a century ago.
During the second World War, 26 Canadian areas from New Brunswick to Alberta hosted more than 35,000 prisoners of war – soldiers, insurgents, sailors and airmen. These prisons provided a unique environment, very different from that seen elsewhere. During World War II these prisons offered dining and recreation halls, workshops, fields and educational huts. The prisoners had access to all kinds of fun activities, from playing musical instruments to competing in soccer, wrestling, tennis, boxing, skating, handball and many more sports. They were provided with uniforms and warm clothes suitable for even the coldest winter. Not only that, but the prisoners were also given jobs. Most of them were hired as helping hands in a number of local farms. And if that isn’t unusual enough, the prison guards at the camps were extremely trusting when it came to the prisoners. They weren’t afraid of a possible rebel uprising as the prisoners were so happy with their lives, they didn’t want to leave.
However, there are some recorded attempts of breaking free from the camps.
