Description

Secretary J. J. Hertig, a Danish Red Triangle worker, stands next to the grave of Vladimir Kavsky, an imperial Russian field chaplain who died in the prison camp at Spratzern in 1915. Secretary Hertig was one of the neutral secretaries who volunteered to replace the departing American secretaries in War Prisoners' Aid work in Austria-Hungary. The monument to the Russian soldier is interesting in its design and includes a poem in German.
