Description

Recently exchanged Russian prisoners of war from Germany enjoy a lunch in Petrograd which was hosted by Grand Duchess Maria Pavlovna. The repatriation process allowed the Allied and Central Powers to exchange badly wounded or seriously ill soldiers who would otherwise be a burden on the captor nation. Russian Red Cross nurses care for the exchanged war prisoners.
