Description

This photograph provides a view of the camp perimeter and barbed-wire fence as well as the commandant's office (to the left) and POW barracks in the prison camp at Dunaszerdahley. Note the low fence and white line that runs parallel to the fence which is no man's land for POW's. Assuming that prisoners in this area were attempting to escape, guards had orders to shoot any prisoners that ventured into this forbidden area.
