Tom Hardy è Jack Rose - Colditz (2005) #tomhardy #colditz

Der Tag geht dem Ende entgegen, im Probenraum liegen die Instrumente und Noten zerstreut. Es war im Großen und Ganzen ein anstrengender, erfolgreicher aber auch lustiger Tag.

Escape tunnel dug by Allied prisoners in Colditz Castle former Nazi prison.
Prisoners made numerous attempts to escape from Oflag IV-C, one of the most famous German Army prisoner-of-war camps for officers in World War II. Between 30–36 (German/Allied figures) men succeeded in their attempts. The camp was in Colditz Castle, perched on a cliff overlooking the town of Colditz in Saxony.

The German Army made Colditz a Sonderlager (high-security prison camp), the only one of its type within Germany. Field Marshal Hermann Göring even declared Colditz "escape-proof." Yet despite this audacious claim, there were multiple escapes by British, Canadian, French, Polish, Dutch, and Belgian inmates. Despite some misapprehensions to the contrary, Colditz Castle was not used as a prisoner of war camp in World War I.

At the age of 9 I read a book about a prisoner of war camp in #Germany called #Colditz. It was a 700+ year castle, meant to house the worst of the worst POW who kept escaping. Today, 24 years later I get to visit Oflag IV C for the first time, and walk in the shadows of the names in that book. #nostalgicbear #dreamcometrue #wwii #colditzcastle 🇬🇧🐻🇩🇪🏰 #thebritbear #thisbritdontquit #ironpalace #ironparadise #devilsplayground #focus #raisethebar #hardwork #trainhard #gymrat #gainz #gains #makinggains #workout #fit #bodybuilding #beastmode #fitnessaddict #gym #exercise #instafit

Lieutenant Albert Michael Sinclair, DSO (26 February 1918 – 25 September 1944), known as the Red Fox, was a British prisoner at Colditz Castle (POW camp Oflag IV-C) during World War II. He was involved in a number of escape attempts and was recognised within the camp for his determination to escape. Sinclair was the only person to be killed while attempting to escape Colditz.
Sinclair arrived in Colditz in July 1942 and almost immediately made an attempt to escape. He received a court martial charge for an offence allegedly committed in his prior POW camp. He was taken to Leipzig for trial but managed to make a getaway whilst in a lavatory at a Leipzig barracks. He was recaptured a few days later in Cologne, during a civilian hunt for RAF pilots believed to have been shot down over the city, during a bombing raid; his clothing, primarily of RAF origin, gave him away.
