Ruhleben

ruhleben

was in the news today, including a brief mention of a certain escapee – G. Pyke – in the BBC News article by Stephen Evans.

This is part of the publicity for the forthcoming RHS exhibition on the Ruhleben Horticultural Society, and their attempts to track down relatives of Ruhleben’s gardening enthusiasts.

Perhaps one day there will be efforts to track down the relatives of the gardening enthusiasts in Guantanamo Bay who managed to create a secret garden in the detention camp, an equally moving story.
