She revealed herself by riding naked through the town of Coventry, a city twinned after WWII with Dresden.

That's true, but according to my information, Coventry was first twinned with Stalingrad (which is now Volgograd again) during the war (WWII, that is). It was done as a gesture of solidarity with the Soviets, and because both cities were considered to have suffered badly (although one obviously had it much worse than the other).

Coventry and Dresden were both infamously bombed during the war. Because neither had any targets of significant military or industrial value, they were obvious cases of terror bombing, which explains why they did become twin cities, but not until after the war.

Either way, it's still a great riddle. - D

Yeah, I didn't know whether to go with the Stalingrad info I got from Wiki, or the Dresden thing. No diff. Thanks for the kudos and keep knocking 'em down so I can put more up. :D
