Description

This photograph shows four potatoes that have been "sabotaged" by Allied prisoners working on agricultural labor detachments. The POW's cut the eyes out of the potatoes and without these seeds, the Germans would be unable to grow the next crop of potatoes. Due to the effectiveness of the Allied blockade, this practice placed an even greater burden on the German war economy.
