Description

The members of the Polish Legion assigned to Barrack A in the prison camp at Zurawica pose for a photograph outside of their quarters. Although these men fought for the Austrian army while the Russians occupied Poland, they refused to take an oath of allegiance to the new Polish Regency established in Warsaw by the Germans and Austro-Hungarians in 1916. In response, the Austrians interned these men in this prison camp for the duration of the war.
