Description

A large group of Russian prisoners captured by the Germans at Tannenberg pose with three German NCO's and a few French prisoners in the camp compound at Wetzlar. Many of the Russian POW's would not return home for years as a result of the Russian Civil War. Note that some of the Russian POW's are wearing wooden shoes instead of their issued leather boots which reflected the beginning of a leather shortage in Germany.
