Colditz Castle

Schloss Colditz is a castle in the town of Colditz near Leipzig, Dresden, and Chemnitz in the state of Saxony in Germany.

Used as a workhouse for the indigent and a mental institution for over 100 years, it became notorious during World War II as Oflag IV-C, a prisoner-of-war camp for "incorrigible" Allied officers who had repeatedly escaped from other camps.
