Description

A group of Russian prisoners of war at Doeberitz, representing a wide range of nationalities in the tsarist empire, stand in front of their barrack. The Germans assigned Russian and Western Allied POWs to this facility in spite of Western diplomatic protests against this policy. Russian troops tended to carry a wide range of diseases that could lead to deadly epidemics in crowded prison camps.
