Description

This photograph of the Muslim mosque at Zossen-Wuensdorf shows the dome and the minaret. Kaiser Wilhelm II constructed the mosque for French, British, and Russian Muslim prisoners to demonstrate his friendship for the Islamic people. The Germans used Zossen-Wuensdorf as a propaganda camp to entice Muslims to change sides and fight for the Caliph in the Turkish Army.
