A prison on the Eastern front


We’re still in Russia, with another kind of building, after yesterday’s hut. A rather interesting, even mysterious picture: Most of these men are Russian soldiers, without weapon or equipment. The only soldier with a rifle, in a guard house, is a German one. The Russian soldiers are probably prisoners of war, even if the photo wasn’t taken in a camp. It seems a house (or a barrack) was converted into a prison (indeed there are bars on the windows). It seems some level of freedom was allowed, as most of the men are in the yard.
