Description

A labor detachment of Russian prisoners from Wasbek is busy digging a trench and felling trees under the supervision of a German officer (he is holding plans in the center of the photograph). The Germans kept prisoners occupied on a wide range of jobs to help support the local economy. Trenches were important for flood control and irrigation to help support agriculture.
