Description

The vast sea of prisoners is demonstrated by this "photograph" of 30,000 Russian prisoners of war standing in the compound of an unidentified German prison camp. This picture is actually a montage of several photographs produced by the American YMCA (note the disproportion of sizes between the groups of men) to show the cramped conditiosn of prison life during the war.
