Description

Polish Legionnaires line up for their dinner ration of soup in the prison compound at Huszt in 1918. Prisoners retrieved large pots of soup from the camp kitchen and ladled out the rations in the open compound. The POW's receive their meals under the watchful eye of a Hungarian guard. The Hungarians interned these Polish prisoners in 1916 when they refused to take the oath of allegiance to the new Polish Regency in Poland.
