Description

The YMCA provided musical instruments which allowed French POW's to form bands and orchestras in prison. Access to instruments gave skilled musicians the opportunity to continue practicing for post-war performances and concerts improved the morale of the general camp population. The band at Muenster is performing an afternoon concert in the prison compound. Note the laundry drying outdoors outside of the barracks.
