Looking for “Ruhleben: A Digital Exhibit?”
The original Ruhleben Internment Camp exhibit, "Ruhleben: A British Community in wartime Germany" was displayed in the library's Caspersen Room from September 2011 - December 9, 2011. In the fall of that year, a more extensive online exhibit, “Ruhleben: A Digital Exhibit” was debuted. After more than 10 years, we are retiring the exhibit’s online platform. We will be working on moving the exhibit to a new, more accessible platform but in the meantime, you can still access the digitized collections.
What Ruhleben material does the Library have?
The Harvard Law School Library has two Ruhleben collections, both of which have been digitized. They include manuscripts, newsletters, artwork, photographs, and other ephemera created by the prisoners of this World War I civilian internment camp.
