American prisoners carried their sports along with them, even to prison camp. This photograph captures the middle of a football game on the compound at Rastatt, as spectators line the sidelines. The American YMCA provided the equipment and the Y Committee organized the camp's sports program, which included NCO's serving as refugees. Note the large number of spectators and the POWs' quarters in the background.
