Description

In front of an administrative building in Ulm, Russian prisoners obtain copies of the prison camp newspaper. Many camps printed their own newspapers to provide POW's with information about camp news, social events, sports, and class and church schedules. Proceeds from the sale of newspapers often went to the camp Help Committee. German authorities also printed special propaganda newspapers, especially in Wuerttemberg, in an effort to sway POW opinions.
