Description

Russian prisoners relax on the bank of a small lake while other prisoners enjoy a swim near Grafenwoehr. The Germans fenced off the swimming area to deter prisoners from taking too long a swim. Such excursions usually required prisoners to give their parole, or word, that they would not try to escape during their trip away from camp.
