Description

Prisoners at Reichenberg had the opportunity to swim in a small lake next to the prison camp. The Austrians constructed wooden walls around the beach and into the water to reduce the chances of escape. Swimming was an excellent activity for prisoners since the men could clean off, get some exercise, and cool off during the hot summer months.
