Description

French prisoners practice training their fire hose on the roof of a barrack at Darmstadt, as seen from the prison guard tower. Prisoners man the pumps in the foreground to provide the stream of water. Both German authorities and war prisoners had a great interest in preventing barrack fires which could have resulted in large numbers of casualties.
