Prisoners of war dry their clothing in the prison compound at Goettingen in front of the YMCA hall (the building with the steeple). Several groups of men sit on benches outside of the Red Triangle building while a Landstrum sentry marches on guard duty. Others take advantage of the nice day and wash and dry their laundry. The YMCA became the center of the prison camp's social life during the war.
