Description

A labor detachment of French and Belgian prisoners of war pull a wagon full of firewood on their way back to the prison camp at Muenster. Firewood was an important source of fuel to heat the barracks at night and to run the boilers, ovens, and stoves in the prison camp. Due to the wartime demand for horses by the German Army, the prisoners had to draw the wagons that carried many of the necessities for camp operations.
