Description

Russian prisoners stand at the entrance to their earthen barrack at Hammerstein in 1914. These barracks offered few windows, which limited ventilation, but prevented the escape of heat, a major consideration during the long, cold winters of eastern Germany. This particular building was a temporary facility which held prisoners while permanent barracks were constructed.
