Description

German censors at Puccheim intercepted this package containing bacteria for germ warfare against cattle and pigs. The photographs show the original message found in a cigarette tin; translations of the message into French and German, the container, the seal, the rubber bladder, the glass tube with the bacteria, and the German document of authenticity. Assured that the bacteria presented no threat to the health of the POW, the prisoner was instructed to give the bacteria to livestock which would undermine German meat production.
