Wednesday 8 December, 4.30pm (c 1 hr)

This early evening talk presented by Anne Buckley, a lecturer in German and Translation Studies at the University of Leeds, will be a fascinating insight into the lives of the German POWs who resided in Skipton during the First World War. Most aptly it will also shed some light on how the POWs managed to celebrate Christmas within the camp. Anne’s talk draws uniquely from a diary the POWs secretly wrote during their time in Skipton which was subsequently smuggled back to Germany and published under the title Kriegsgefangen in Skipton.
