For this year’s excursion we invite you to join us on a visit to Colditz Castle – so everyone who missed it in 2012 – and everybody who wanted to visit again – here is your chance:
Saturday, 2 June 2018, 14:00 hrs.
Registration by Wednesday, 16 May, please, under firstname.lastname@example.org .
Please also state if you will travel by car and for how many passengers you would be able to offer a lift.
Colditz Castle has an impressive story to tell as a PoW camp during World War II – a story virtually everybody in Britain has heard of but surprisingly few people in Germany. It’s a story of great inventive power (ever come across a wooden sewing machine?) and daring escape attempts, many of them successful, from what the Nazis considered as the ultimate escape-proof camp. So, come and join us for a guided tour (in English) of a really extraordinary place and its Anglo-German history. As we need to pre-book the guided tour, please don’t miss the 16 May deadline.
