Description

The YMCA helped boy prisoners in the prison camp at Braunau-in-Boehmen to learn to read and write in this classroom in the Y hall. The Association persuaded Austrian authorities to concentrate Russian and Serbian boys in the Austrian prison camp system at Braunau so they could receive better treatment and the opportunity to gain an education to make them better men and future citizens.
