Description

One of the barracks at Dunaszerdahley is ablaze at night. This was one of the worst nightmares for POW's because fires were particularly dangerous in packed barracks. Camp administrators strictly prohibited smoking and other fire hazards in camp buildings in an attempt to prevent conflagrations and trained fire crews to rescue prisoners and combat the flames.
