  Rur - Information at Halfvalue.com
The Rur -German, in Dutch and French: Roer, — not to be confused with the Ruhr — is a river in Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands.
The source of the Rur is in the Hautes Fagnes/Hohes Venn National Park, near the 696m high Signal de Botrange in Belgium at an altitude of 660m.
Between 16th December 1944 and 23rd February 1945, the U.S. Ninth Army was unable to advance across the Rur because German forces controlled dams close to the river's source in the densely forested region of the Hohes Venn.

R.U.R. was written at a time when the world was still reeling from the horrors of the First World War, which horrors were magnified by technological advancements that made the killing industry far more efficient than it ever had been in the past.
Today Karel Capek's R.U.R. is most famous as the work that introduced the word "robot" (from the Czech word "robit," meaning "work") and for its conceptualization of a bio-mechanical device in human form.
