“The Shoe Leather Express” – Kriegsgefangenenlager Der Luftwaffe #4″

(Posted: January 5, 2012)

I learned throughout my research on the subject of how the prisoners did their best to keep in shape.  They were very limited you see, having to keep within the confines of the barbed wire that surrounded them.  It is mentioned in the page that follows  from “The Shoe Leather Express” that the men would walk the perimeter of their compound –  something that I know my Dad did to keep in the best physical condition that he could.  With rumors about the inevitable evacuation, it was anyone’s guess as to what that evacuation would entail for them.  Put yourself in their place if you can with no control whatsover over what the plan was for you.  The only control that you had was over how you would handle it.  You had to try to think positive; you had to feel that the end of your misery was in sight . . . . . .

  4. I have been surfing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before.
