Description

American POW's organize Red Cross supplies for distribution to U.S. prisoners under the supervision of a German non-commissioned officer. These parcels included food and bread sent by the Red Cross to augment the nutritional standards of American soldiers in the German prison camp. American POW's received a much higher daily caloric intake in relation to other war prisoners and even their German guards. The photograph was probably taken by Paul B. Anderson, an American YMCA WPA Secretary.
