Description

At the disinfection station, the Russian prisoners of war surrendered their clothing and took showers or bathed in a special dip to kill vermin. Barbers shaved off their hair and beards to eliminate any sources of lice. After their clothing went through a disinfection process, they were returned to the Russian prisoners. This is a photograph of the same four Russian POW's who arrived in the prison camp.
