Description

Russian tailors are busy at work at the back of this workshop while cobblers labor behind the screened-wire wall to the right in the prison camp at Stendal. Skilled laborers supported the operation of prison camps by making and repairing shoes, boots, and clothing for the benefit of POWs. Apprentices also gained the opportunity to learn a trade that would help them find work after the war.
