Description

A prisoner of war loads clothing into the disinfection oven at Muensingen. The potential for epidemics within prison camps due to lice and other vermin forced the Germans to regularly disinfect prisoner clothing. Live steam, provided by the boiler to the left of the oven, killed vermin and decontaminated uniforms.
