Description

This photograph shows the exterior of the fortress, including the gate to the inner courtyard at Wuerzburg. The fortress served as a prison facility for Allied officers and offered tight security. The Germans tended to assign Allied officers to fortresses for incarceration because they had more time on their hands in relation to enlisted men (officers were not required to work) and had more incentive to escape confinement.
