Description

Menu from the officers' prison camp at Villingen for the week of 2-8 August 1915. The menu identifies the daily meal planned for Allied officers, with coffee and sugar for breakfast, and a variety of lunches and dinners. The portion provided to each POW is given in grams, including a daily allowance of 300 grams of bread. To inform the prisoners' family and friends of the good treatment they received in prison camp, the Germans printed menus on envelopes for distribution to the prisoners.
