Description

This camp visitation permit was issued to Archibald C. Harte on April 2, 1915 by the prison commandant at Cassel-Niederzwehren. Harte used these visits to investigate conditions in German prison camps and promote the establishment of a War Prisoners' Aid program for Allied prisoners of war. Harte's diplomacy would eventually pay off as German authorities eventually decided to permit neutral Association secretaries to begin YMCA programs in prison camps.
