Description

The protruding bones and pencil thin arms of these Italian prisoners of war aptly demonstrate the food problems that existed in Austro-Hungarian prison camps as a result of the Allied blockade. These men also suffered from tuberculosis, in addition to malnutrition. They were photographed by Italian officials after they were repatriated from the Dual Monarchy.
