  • This cartoon was drawn by a British internee at the prison camp at Ruhleben, describing the long awaited day of the end of the war and repatriation. Some of the internees will march out of camp under a banner, others will stack their belongings on a cart, while most prisoners will scramble to gather some of their belongings and escape the confines of the camp for the waiting trains. Note the YMCA hall in the background of the drawing. Source: Century, 94 (July 1917): 372.
