Description

A group of Russian prisoners of war work in their gardens at an unidentified Austrian prison camp. Gardening allowed POW's to spend some time outdoors, improve the appearance of the camp, and, most importantly, helped vary their diet. The prisoners could augment their rations with fresh vegetables. In many camps, prisoners held garden competitions to test their horticultural skills.
