Description

The Germans quickly arrested potential French sympathizers in Alsace and Lorraine en masse after the war began to prevent any subversive actions against the German war effort. In this photograph, Alexis Samain, the founder of la Lorraine sportiv, an athletic organization in Lorraine, stands in the center; he was among the first to be sent for internment in a German fortress for the duration of the war.
