Description

A Greek Orthodox priest conducts an outdoor service for a large group of devout Russian prisoners of war at Sprottau on a makeshift platform and altar. While most prison camps in Germany had chapels (converted from barracks) or churches, these buildings could not accommodate large numbers of men. When weather permitted, priests could conduct outdoor services.
