Description

This drawing portrays French civilian internees pass their time in conversation, reading, and writing. Most of these men were serving time as hostages to ensure a peaceful occupation of French territory. Life for civilians in the bastion at Rastatt was tedious as civilian prisoners spent a great deal of their time in monotony because they did not have access to the same programs POW's enjoyed in prison camps nor did they have the chance to work outside of their cells.
