We have all seen the re-enactment of P.O.W. theatricals in such productions as "Bridge on the River Kwai" (1957), "Grand Illusion" (1937) and, of course, "Hogan's Heroes" (1965); however, judging from this article about allied prisoners of war incarcerated at the Ruhleban Prisoner of War Camp (Germany) we get a sense of how far off the mark those scenes were. The productions listed above all seem to suppose that P.O.W. performances were not too far removed from Vaudeville or the camp of the London Music Hall -yet this article from "Literary Digest" makes a World War I prisoner of war camp seem more like an arts festival than anything else.

If you are looking for an article that spells out how much more educated people used to be as compared to now, you might have found it.
