Description

A secret photograph of dead Italian prisoners lying on the floor in the prison camp at Siegmundsherberg. The devastating effects of starvation can be seen by the protruding bones on these bodies. A repatriated POW smuggled this photograph into Switzerland during the war and it was used by the Italians to demonstrate the terrible conditions which existed in Dual Monarchy prison camps.
