French prisoners at Ohrdruf pass the time by playing a friendly game of lotto (bingo) out in the prison yard. Gambling was a serious vice, especially when men had a lot of free time on their hands and regulations attempted to eliminate high stakes gambling. Most POW's had few possessions after their capture, which limited gambling opportunities. Note the prisoner identification badges on the left breast of each POW.
