Description

This drawing depicts recently-released French prisoners of war and Alsatian troops that had fought in the German Army, carrying their belongings on their backs, as they cross the frontier and meet two French soldiers (at the right) at Strausbourg in November 1918. They returned home one week after the signing of the Armistice, which required the Germans to release Allied prisoners.
