Interior view of a barrack in Minden I, which highlights the beds and possessions of a wide range of Allied prisoners. French, Belgian, and Russian POWs, as well as some interned civilians, lived communally in these sleeping accommodations. Some of the POWs are eating their dinners at the table at the right. Rations for each barrack were distributed at the camp kitchen on a barrack unit basis and served to the barrack inhabitants at Minden. This avoided the necessity of long quenes as individual war prisoners waited for their rations and sped up the feeding process.
