Description

Russian prisoners stand in front of earthen barracks in the prison camp at Hammerstein. Winter weather in eastern Germany was severe and the Germans constructed barracks in the ground in an attempt to keep the quarters warmer. The Allies protested against the incarceration of POW's in these types of barracks on health concerns due to the lack of ventilation in these quarters.
