The Ruhleben Civilian Internee Camp of WWI

The Ruhleben Civilian Internee Camp of WWI

Introduction

When Britain declared war on Germany at the beginning of WWI, they rounded up all the German men who happened to be in Britain at the time, interring them in a number of different camps. The Germans responded by interring all of the British and British Empire people who happened to be in Germany at the time in one camp at Ruhleben, on the road between Berlin and Spandau. This camp was made from a racecourse, and the prisoners lived in the horse boxes.
