French prisoners sit in the prison kitchen peeling a huge pile of potatoes at Darmstadt, under the supervision of a German non-commissioned officer. A barrel of peeled potatoes stands next to the sink. To feed a large prison population took a great deal of time, effort, and resources. Many camps acquired machines to peel potatoes to meet POW dietary needs.
