Las SS hicieron de Colditz una prisión de alta seguridad, la única de su tipo dentro de Alemania; Hermann Göring incluso afirmó que Colditz era a prueba de fugas. A pesar de esta afirmación, hubo evasiones por parte de los presos británicos, franceses, polacos, holandeses y belgas internados en ella.
Colditz gaat over een bijzondere groep geallieerde officieren die de Tweede Wereldoorlog doorbrachten met het plannen van gedurfde ontsnappingen uit Colditz, het grimmige, gotische kasteel in nazi-Duitsland. Uitgegeven door Boekerij Spreker: Chris Kijne

But, in a new book by Ben Macintyre, we hear for the first time the real story of Colditz. A story that's not just more complicated, but far more interesting than the one we were told.This podcast was brought to you thanks to the support of readers of The Times and The Sunday Times.

Simon Mayo's Books Of The Year
Bestselling author and Times columnist Ben Macintyre joins Simon and Matt to talk about his brilliant new book, Colditz: Prisoners Of The Castle. They discuss some of the incredible characters who frequented the prison, and the range of extraordinary escape plans which took place...and mainly failed. Here's the bumf: In a forbidding Gothic castle on a hilltop in the heart of Nazi Germany, an unlikely band of British officers spent the Second World War plotting daring escapes from their Nazi captors. Or so the story of Colditz has gone, unchallenged for 70 years. But that tale contains only part of the truth.The astonishing inside story, revealed for the first time by bestselling historian Ben Macintyre, is a tale of the indomitable human spirit, but also one of class conflict, homosexuality, espionage, insanity and farce.From the Indian doctor whose hunger strike and eventual escape reads like a thriller, to America's oldest paratrooper and least successful secret agent, the soldier-prisoners of Colditz were astonishingly imaginative in their escape attempts; but there were many other ways to survive while awaiting their unknown fate. Deeply researched and full of incredible colour, this is the definitive book on one of the greatest war stories ever told. Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.

In World War Two the ancient fortress of Colditz Castle was used by the German Army to hold its most defiant prisoners of war. Located near Leipzig, deep in Germany, it was almost impossible to escape. If an Allied escapee did manage to make it out of the castle walls, they'd face a journey home of hundreds of miles in enemy territory, with no guarantee of safety or help. But the men of Colditz were no ordinary prisoners, and their captors were about to find out why.In this episode James is joined by bestselling author Ben MacIntyre as he reveals the characters who became legends of World War Two due to their daring escapes.Ben's new book Colditz: Prisoners of the Castle is available here.For more Warfare content, subscribe to our Warfare Wednesday newsletter here.If you'd like to learn even more, we have hundreds of history documentaries, ad free podcasts and audiobooks at History Hit - enter promo code WARFARE for two weeks free + 50% off your first three months' subscription.

Looking at Colditz Castle, it was no surprise why the Nazi's chose the towering fortress as their prison-of-war camp for the most defiant Allied prisoners. Perched high above a rocky outcrop with thick medieval walls of stone, the men who had escaped other camps would surely have no such luck here, living out the war under the watchful eye of their German captors. But men do not resign themselves so lightly, and with nothing but time on their hands, the POWs of Colditz would engineer some of the most ingenious—and utterly reckless—methods of escape that could be imagined.Today's guest is Ben Macintyre, author of “Prisoners of the Castle: An Epic Story of Survival and Escape From Colditz.” We metaphorically go inside the prison to live among side these men as they grapple with class conflict, bullying, boredom, insanity and farce. There are heroes and traitors, class conflicts and secret alliances, and ingenious escape attempts that would become legend. We get into character portraits of the inmates, along with their stories of bravery and sacrifice.
Sunday Times Chief Political Commentator and spy book fan Tim Shipman talks with Ben Macintyre about his latest work based on Colditz, Prisoners of the Castle. The “entertaining yet objective and often-moving account” (The Wall Street Journal) of one of history's most notorious prisons—and the remarkable cast of POWs who tried relentlessly to escape their captors, from the New York Times bestselling author of The Spy and the Traitor In this gripping narrative, Ben Macintyre tackles one of the most famous prison stories in history and makes it utterly his own. During World War II, the German army used the towering Colditz Castle to hold the most defiant Allied prisoners. For four years, these prisoners of the castle tested its walls and its guards with ingenious escape attempts that would become legend. But as Macintyre shows, the story of Colditz was about much more than escape. Its population represented a society in miniature, full of heroes and traitors, class conflicts and secret alliances, and the full range of human joy and despair. In Macintyre's telling, Colditz's most famous names—like the indomitable Pat Reid—share glory with lesser known but equally remarkable characters like Indian doctor Birendranath Mazumdar whose ill treatment, hunger strike, and eventual escape read like fiction; Florimond Duke, America's oldest paratrooper and least successful secret agent; and Christopher Clayton Hutton, the brilliant inventor employed by British intelligence to manufacture covert escape aids for POWs. Prisoners of the Castle traces the war's arc from within Colditz's stone walls, where the stakes rose as Hitler's war machine faltered and the men feared that liberation would not come soon enough to spare them a grisly fate at the hands of the Nazis. Bringing together the wartime intrigue of his acclaimed Operation Mincemeat and keen psychological portraits of his bestselling true-life spy stories, Macintyre has breathed new life into one of the greatest war stories ever told.

At the outbreak of WWII, the ancient gothic castle of Colditz was converted into a prisoner-of-war camp. Its location on a rocky spur overlooking a river made it the ideal location for a high-security prison, or so the Germans thought. Sent to Colditz were some of the most difficult allied prisoners-of-war. Made famous after the second world war in memoirs, films and TV, Colditz was known for its multiple escape attempts, some of great derring-do, others were feats of ingenuity and engineering. In this episode, I'm joined by Ben Macintyre. Ben is the bestselling author of books including Agent Sonya, SAS: Rogue Heroes, The Spy and the Traitor, Agent Zigzag, Operation Mincemeat and A Spy Among Friends. Ben's new book Prisoners of the Castle: An Epic Story of Survival and Escape from Colditz, the Nazis' Fortress Prison takes a new look at the Colditz and really fills out the story.

Cold War Conversations History Podcast
This is the 2nd part of my interview with Lt Col. Stephen Harrison, MBE who served for two years as a full-time Touring Officer with BRIXMIS. The tours were hazardous three-man, vehicle-borne patrols collecting intelligence on the Warsaw Pact forces in East Germany for up to five days and nights over a series of four-month patrolling periods. In this episode, we hear of Stephen's imprisonment in a Soviet Army gaol, following detention in a Soviet Army garrison town as well as East German and Soviet Army press coverage about his activities. Stephen's speciality was using his language skills to engage and befriend opposition troops and thereby gaining valuable intelligence. He used to go into bars frequented by Soviet officers and recalls one particular drunken night in Potsdam.. We also hear about his visit to the infamous World War 2 prison camp of Colditz castle where he befriends the staff enabling other BRIXMIS tours to visit regularly.Stephen also shares details of the top-secret Operation Tomahawk, a particularly unpleasant mission which may not be for those of a sensitive disposition.In later years Stephen obtained his Stasi file which reveals that the surveillance on him was far closer than he'd ever believed.Don't miss part 1 of this fascinating interview here.Cold War history is disappearing; however, a simple monthly donation will keep this podcast on the air.

Mes chers camarades, bien le bonjour !Désolé mais aujourd'hui, j'ai une mauvaise nouvelle : on va tous en prison. Mais pas n'importe laquelle : une prison spécialement pensée et mise en place pour qu'aucun détenu ne puisse jamais s'en échapper. Vous me direz, à la réflexion, y'a pas beaucoup de prisons qui sont pensées pour permettre les évasions…Celle qui nous intéresse aujourd'hui est un peu particulière, puisqu'il s'agit d'une prison militaire. Durant la Seconde Guerre mondiale, après avoir rapidement conquis une bonne partie de l'Europe, l'armée allemande s'est retrouvée avec beaucoup de prisonniers. Il fallait bien les mettre quelque part. D'autant que la plupart d'entre eux n'avaient qu'une seule idée en tête, se faire la belle pour rentrer chez eux, voire reprendre le combat. Non seulement voir des ennemis retourner dans l'armée adverse n'est jamais bon pour le moral, mais en plus rechercher ces fugitifs mobilise des forces de police et de renseignement qui ont mieux à faire. La gestion des prisonniers pouvait donc devenir une épine dans le pied des Allemands ! Bon, on va pas les plaindre non plus, hein.Bonne écoute !

Welcome to episode 29 of The Way Out Is In: The Zen Art of Living, a podcast series mirroring Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh's deep teachings of Buddhist philosophy: a simple yet profound methodology for dealing with our suffering, and for creating more happiness and joy in our lives. In this episode, the presenters, Zen Buddhist monk Brother Phap Huu and journalist Jo Confino, discuss the Four Nutriments – edible foods, sense impressions, volition, and consciousness – and share their own experiences and understanding of this core Buddhist teaching. By further delving into each Nutriment, the two find Buddhist insights and practical ways to explore and shift how we can consume mindfully. Brother Phap Huu shares his thoughts about practicing moderation and gratitude for our meals (plus, the benefits of chewing each bite a full 30 times); nourishing our consumption when we eat; being mindful in an addictive society and recognising the energies in us; volition as a source of energy; wholesome individual and collective consciousness (and habits); mental formations; lazy days; and: what is enough? Jo considers food politics and ethics; addiction and suffering; shifts in the mindfulness of eating; the impact of big cities on our consumption; the possible dangers of volition (with a story from the 70s television drama Colditz); collective ‘rivers' of consciousness; and forgiveness. The episode ends with a short meditation guided by Brother Phap Huu.

And this is really crucial, because it helps us not take more than what we need from the Earth.”“I think people have a sort of a reverence for the taste of food, but not for the food itself.”“’If you take a single piece of carrot, and before you put it in your mouth, just look deeply at that piece of carrot and you can see that the entire universe is in that piece of carrot.’ He [Thay] was saying that for the carrot to grow, it needs the air, it needs the water, it needs the soil, and it needs the sun. And for the sun to exist, the whole universe has to exist. And then, from a human perspective, it needs the farmer and the person picking the crop, and then delivering it to the shop, and then the shopkeeper to sell it to you. So in just one carrot, if you really stop and look, you would develop a reverence for that carrot because you see that all of life was needed for it to exist.” “We have to speak about very practical things so that we can have a journey, a practice, so that we can become aware of our habits. We have personal habits, and we even have collective habits, as a community, as a society. And then we have habits that are passed down through our ancestors to us, in relation to how we consume life.” “We have needs and we think they’re essential for us, but if we reflect and review the way we are consuming, I think we are happy with having less.” “Are we consuming mindfully? It's not about not consuming, it’s about how we are consuming.” “There is no way to happiness. Happiness is the way.” “We are in a dynamic relationship with life, and often we’re not really conscious of that.” “All of our thoughts create this river of consciousness.” “Nature is a very good television. But it’s not about just watching it, but being in it.” “There’s so much coming at us, from a thousand directions. And if we are not aware of how we are responding to life, then we lose our agency and become a victim.” “I have this image of a racehorse going around the track with blinkers on its eyes. They put blinkers on it so it can only look forward and isn’t distracted by life. And, in a sense, that’s always the risk, isn’t it? We think our job is to race around the track as fast as possible – but then we miss everything that’s going on in life, and any opportunity to try to transform.” “If someone is really purifying their mind, that is going to have a positive impact on the collective consciousness. And it made me realize that, actually, all our actions – whatever we do or choose to think or act on – feed into what the future will look like.”
Episode 92: Paleo vs Keto vs Mediterranean. Sapna and Danish explain the main differences between three meal plans: Paleo, Keto, and Mediterranean. Intro about fad diets.Introduction: Fad diets. By Hector Arreaza, MD. It is estimated that 2/3 of Americans are overweight or have obesity (73% of men and 63% of women), but only 19% of people claim to “be on a diet”, and 77% of people are trying to “eat healthier”. It seems like many of us are on the weight-loss wagon together, hoping for a cure for this disease.These days it is commonplace to hear about fad diets. Fad diets are short-lived eating patterns that make unrealistic claims about weight loss and improving health, with little to no effort on your part. “The Super-Duper diet will make you lose 100 pounds, eliminate your cellulite, erase stretch marks, remove your wrinkles, and give you extra energy to fly to the moon and back, buy the super-duper diet now!” We surely have a lot of products that make senseless promises, claim many victims, and leave people with empty pockets. Today is May 6, 2022. Sapna and Danish will enlighten us again with more nutrition discussions. When you go around your grocery store, have you wondered what “keto-friendly” really means? We hope after today, you get a better idea about it. Today we are presenting a brief discussion to compare three common dietary approaches for weight loss: Keto, Paleo, and Mediterranean. I'm sure you have heard some things about these diets, but we want to add to your fund of knowledge. Whether they are fad diets or not, we'll let you decide. Enjoy it!

Prepared by Sapna Patel, MS4, and Danish Khalid, MS4, Ross University School of Medicine. Comments by Hector Arreaza, MD.Welcome back to our Nutrition series!D: In our previous episode, we talked about calorie balance and macronutrients. The basics of nutrition. So, if you haven't already listened to that, pause this, and go listen to that first. As we will only continue to build on that knowledge. Now, let's begin…S: Whether your goals are to lose fat or gain muscle. Nowadays, we've got so many ways to achieve our nutritional goals. It can be difficult and overwhelming to know which one is best for you. So today, we will talk about some of the main “diets'' that are well known to all.Comment: People hate the word “Diet”, should we call them meal plans or Nutrition plans?S: The Paleo meal plan. The Ketogenic meal plan. The Mediterranean meal plan. And as we go through each of them, we will compare them and discuss which fit certain nutritional goals.Comment: These meal plans are very trendy right now, some people call them fad diets, but only time can tell if these diets really work long term or not. D: Let's start with the Paleo meal plan. What is it? Also known as the Paleolithic diet, Caveman diet, or Stone-Age diet, this meal plan revisits the way humans ate almost 2.5 million years ago—The hunter-gatherer lifestyle. Overall, the meal plan is high in protein, moderate in fat (mainly unsaturated fats), low-moderate in carbohydrates (restricting high-glycemic carbohydrates), high in fiber, and low in sodium and refined sugars. It includes mainly lean meats, fish, fruits, vegetables, nuts, and seeds.Comment: It is low in carbs because carbs were so rare and uncommon in nature before agriculture was introduced to humanity. Animals (including humans) had to wait until the season when the fruit was ripe to enjoy something sweet.S: So, what are some of the benefits of the Paleo meal plan? Well, studies have shown that the paleo meal plan produces greater short-term benefits, including- Greater weight loss- Reduced waist circumference- Decreased blood pressure- Increased insulin sensitivity- Improved cholesterolD: You must be wondering, what's the catch? Aside from the diminishing long-term effects. Although the meal plan focuses on many essential food groups, it also omits others such as whole grains, dairy, and legumes. This could lead to suboptimal intake of important nutrients. Additionally, the restrictive nature of the meal plan may also make it difficult for people to adhere to such a meal plan in the long run. With these confounding facts, there hasn't been a strong link that the paleo meal plan improves cardiovascular risk or metabolic disease.S: Basically, for those looking for a cleaner meal plan, the paleo meal plan is geared towards eliminating high-fat and processed foods that have little nutritional value and too many calories. Moving on to the Ketogenic Meal plan.D: What is the Ketogenic Meal plan? Basically, the ketogenic meal plan is a high fat, moderate protein, and low carb lifestyle. It's about creating ketones. For example, beta-hydroxybutyrate, acetoacetate, and acetone. Ketones are basically a fourth macronutrient. Although we don't find it in our day-to-day food, it's what our body creates.So why do we need ketones, and why does our body create them in the first place? Our body uses carbohydrates, more specifically glucose, as the major source of energy for its daily needs. So, imagine, when we are in periods of starvation and deprive ourselves of carbohydrates. The body would resort to breaking down protein to create glucose for our demanding body in a process called gluconeogenesis. That seems illogical, right? Why would our body break down muscle? That is where ketones come in. While our body is trying to keep up with demands, our liver is working on creating another source of energy. A process called ketogenesis, where ketones are made through fat, more specifically medium-chain fatty acids, to fuel our body.S: So, what's so great about the Ketogenic Meal plan? Well, for starters, during ketogenesis due to low blood glucose feedback, the stimulus for insulin secretion becomes low, which sharply reduces the stimulus for fat and glucose storage. Additionally, people will initially experience rapid weight loss up to 10 lbs. in the first 2 weeks or less. Although the first few pounds may be water weight loss due to the diuretic effect of this meal plan, eventually you obtain fat loss.In this meal plan, lean body muscle is largely spared. So those who are overweight individuals with metabolic syndrome, insulin resistance, and type II diabetes mellitus, are more likely to see improvements in clinical markers for disease risk. Additionally, reducing weight, mainly truncal obesity, may help improve blood pressure, blood glucose regulation, triglyceride levels, and HDL cholesterol.D: That sounds awesome! What do I have to eat? Well, the dietary macronutrients are divided into approximately 55-60% fats, 30-35% protein, and 5-10% carbohydrates. Specifically, no more than 50 grams of carbohydrates.Comment: The difference between ketosis and ketoacidosis is a frequent question done by patients and medical providers. The main difference is that in ketosis your glucose level is normal or low and your pH is still physiologic, but in ketoacidosis, the pH is lower than 7.35 and glucose is above 250 mg/dL. So, when a person is in ketosis, you will not see the, for example, Kussmaul's breathing pattern, but in ketoacidosis, you will see that breathing pattern. If you want more info about the keto meal plan, you can listen to our episode 59, done by a great medical student Constance. S: Finally, the Mediterranean meal plan.The hallmark of this meal plan is simple…minimally processed foods. The main characteristic of a Mediterranean meal plan includes a low-moderate protein intake (very low consumption of red meat, moderate consumption of fish and shellfish), moderate-high fat (rich in unsaturated fats, lower in saturated fats), and moderate to high carbohydrates (legumes, unrefined grains). A very different take from the previous two meal plans.D: What is the hype all about? Why year after year does the Mediterranean meal plan come out on top? Well, the reason why it's one of the better options is because of the style of eating. It encourages vegetables and good fats (limiting bad fats) and discriminates against added sugar. No preservation, no packaging, no processing. This style of eating plays a big role in preventing heat disease, and reducing risk factors such as obesity, diabetes, high cholesterol, or high blood pressure.S: In fact, numerous studies have shown that the Med meal plan promotes weight loss and prevents heart attacks and helps with type 2 diabetes by improving levels of hemoglobin A1c, blood sugar levels, and decreasing insulin resistance. No wonder why out of all these meal plans, it's the only one that meets the AHA dietary recommendations.D: In a meta-analysis of randomized trials including the large PREDIMED trial, a Mediterranean meal plan reduced the risk of stroke compared with a low-fat diet (HR 0.60, 95% CI 0.45 to 0.80) but did not reduce the incidence of cardiovascular or overall mortality. By contrast, in observational studies, a Mediterranean meal plan was associated with lower overall mortality and cardiovascular mortality.Following a Mediterranean meal plan may lead to a reduction in total cholesterol. For example, in a 2011 meta-analysis of six randomized trials comparing the Mediterranean approach with a low-fat diet in 2650 individuals with overweight or obesity, a Mediterranean meal plan led to a greater reduction in total cholesterol (-7.4 mg/dL, 95% CI -10.3 to -4.4) but a nonsignificant reduction in LDL cholesterol (-3.3 mg/dL, 95% CI -7.3 to +0.6 mg/dL . A Mediterranean meal plan may also decrease LDL oxidation.S: Additionally, in observational studies, a Mediterranean meal plan was also associated with a decreased incidence of Parkinson disease, Alzheimer disease, and cancers, including colorectal, prostate, aerodigestive, oropharyngeal, and breast cancers. Comment: I am excited to try the Mediterranean meal plan when I visit Spain this coming summer. It will be my first time in Valencia. Keep in mind, with any meal plan, it will work differently for everyone. Just because it worked for an individual doesn't mean it'll work for you. And vice versa. Besides, everyone has different goals we want to achieve, like all of us here.What do you call someone who can't stick with a meal plan? A deserter. ProteinFatCarbohydratePaleo Meal HighModerateLow-ModerateKetogenic Meal planModerateHighLowMediterranean Meal planModerateModerate-HighModerate-High Conclusion: Now we conclude our episode number 92 “Paleo vs Keto vs Mediterranean.” The take-home messages are: Paleo is a style of eating that encourages unprocessed foods, mainly lean meats, fruits and vegetables in their natural state; Keto consists of eating less than 50 carbs a day and encourages high-fat foods; and the Mediterranean plan promotes good quality fats from vegetable sources, moderate protein and low to moderate carbs. These meal plans have a main goal in common: help your patients lose weight, improve their overall health, and decrease mortality. Even without trying, every night you go to bed being a little wiser.This week we thank Hector Arreaza, Sapna Patel, Danish Khalid, and Shantal Urrutia. Audio edition: Suraj Amrutia.

Fuel Her Awesome: Food Freedom, Body Love, Intuitive Eating & Nutrition Coaching
Does your diet allow you to go to happy hour?! What about enjoying your kid's birthday party? Or weekend getaways with friends? Today we are on a search for science and sustainability in popular diet trends. A lot of the time, food is more than just fuel, it is a way to connect with friends, family, and yourself! It's important to take these things into consideration when establishing your own relationship with food. In this episode I am covering a framework that you can use to evaluate whatever diet it is that's trending to decide if it's something you actually want to do. I break down keto, intermittent fasting, detox and cleanses, and the vegan diet to see where they all fall on the sustainability spectrum. I also go over what actually happens to the body when we fall into yoyo dieting and how it may be more harmful to our health than carrying a few extra pounds. Lots of science and fun nutrition facts coming your way! For more in intermittent fasting be sure to check out this episode! References: (1) Golden, N. H., Schneider, M., & Wood, C. (2016).

These men fought for Britain, France, Poland, and other nations. They were the most daring, imaginative, and brave Allied prisoners plunked into one facility, and for years against all odds and every setback, they relentlessly put the supposedly “escape proof” castle to the test. This is their story – not a single, dramatic mass escape, but a tale of soldiers who wouldn't let themselves be just prisoners, who kept their fighting spirit alive and never, ever gave up.Listen to Learn More About:Listen to Learn More about: The Fortress Colditz Castle MI9, the organization designated to help prisoners of war escapesFailed and successful allied escape attempts like:Frenchmen drilling escape tunnels down through the clock towerA British officer sewing themselves into a mattressA makeshift escape aircraftSee full show notes at mydarkpath.comREFERENCES/ADDITIONAL READING/MEDIA:Channel 4: Escape from Colditz DocumentaryBritanica: Colditz CastleSchloss Colditz HistoryUktv: Colditz HistoryConscript Heroes: Escapers from GermanyArchive: ColditzMUSIC:Intro: Brenner by FallsPart 1: Change Will Come by Third AgePart 2: Camargue by Allice in WinterPart 3: All I have by MomentsPart 4: Romans by Lincoln DavisWhite Rabbit: Perfect Spades by Thrid Age and Nu Alkemi$t
