Description

This drawing depicts the arrival of 600 French civilian hostages at Zosle in Lithuania on 12 January 1918. The Germans seized these notable citizens, including priests, from Occupied France to serve as hostages during the war. The weather conditions were abysmal as the hostages marched into the camp in a driving snow storm.
