Description

This is a sample of the weekly menu for breakfast, lunch, and dinner for British prisoners of war at Giessen. The menu not only identifies the food served at each meal, it also includes the weight of each portion in grams. The Germans took a scientific approach to feeding POW's and publicized food allotments to counter Allied propaganda that they were starving Entente prisoners.
