Derek Niemann

Birds In A Cage

Hay Festival 2013 , 

The remarkable untold story of a group of POWs who, through a shared love of birds, overcame hunger, hardship and boredom to bring purpose and dignity to their lives behind barbed wire. Under the gaze of Nazi guards, they founded a secret bird-watching society, and their legacy lives on in institutions such as the RSPB and the British Wildlife Trust.
