On 21 April I posted a piece about a venerable former President of the European Economic and Social Committee, Fons Margot, and I wrote up his memories of an eventful life. Just recently, I posted him an article about the post-second World War world and the way international organisations were established to deal with the great movements of displaced people, including former prisoners (Fons having himself been involved in such a work). By return of post Fons sent me a photograph, which I am reproducing here, of his father as a Belgian prisoner-of-war in Berlin, 1914-1918. He is on the far left. The two gentlemen in the middle were British POWs, and the gentleman on the right was a Russian POW. No more needs to be said, really. The photo is a story in itself.
