Description

This photograph provides a general view of the Bulgarian prison camp for French prisoners on the Struma River. The camp appears to be under construction due to the number of tents raised within the compound. The POW's can be seen on the lower right side working on the barbed-wire security fence while Bulgarian sentries stand guard. Once the security perimeter was completed, the POW's could begin to build their barracks and move out of the tents. The Struma River can be seen in the background.
