Description

This photograph shows the Cilician Gates looking north, showing the stream and road bed for the Berlin to Baghdad Railway. Allied prisoners provided the labor force for the construction of this railway line through this Taurus Mountains pass. Although Allied prisoners were slow workers and resorted to sabotage whenever possible, the Turks still preferred POW labor for their railroad construction projects rather than employing local workers.
