Description

These four American sailors constituted the American Camp Help Committee at the prison camp at Brandenburg. This committee was responsible for the care of American prisoners in the facility and made sure that arriving prisoners received emergency funds and American Red Cross packets. Many prisoners, victims of torpedo attacks, arrived at Brandenburg without any personal belongings (the Germans assigned sailors and merchant mariners to this facility).
