Description

A panoramic view of the prison camp at Rennbahn (Muenster II) showing how the facility was divided into four quarters by two perpendicular streets. Barracks formed the perimeter of the compound. By dividing the camp into different compounds, the Germans could improve security by organizing the number of POW's into smaller units while maintaining economies of scale for camp operations in regard to transportation, supply, feeding, and medical care. Note the tennis courts in the center of the compound, on the street running to the left.
