Description

The medical staff at Langensalza assembled for this photograph and includes French, Belgian, British, and Russian doctors and orderlies. They assisted the German medical staff in the treatment of sick and wounded prisoners in the camp. Under international law, doctors and medics were supposed to be repatriated, because of their non-combatant status, but the need for medical care in POW camps required Allied doctors to remain incarcerated to care for sick and wounded Entente prisoners.
