Description

Prisoners attack a goal (as seen by the pole to the left) during a soccer match at a prison camp in Germany. Soccer was a very popular sport in prison camps as the prisoners organized leagues. Games usually drew a large number of spectators. As a result, soccer was a healthy pastime for players and provided entertainment for other POW's in the camp.
