  • Crown Princess Margaret of Sweden hosted this exhibition of Allied prisoner of war handicrafts in Stockholm. The show displayed a variety of crafts produced by POW's including a model airplane, a spinning wheel, a windmill, a ship, a vase, baskets, canes, a mandolin, figurines, knick-knacks, drawings, and other items. The exhibition organizers sold these handicrafts to provide prisoners with some additional income. Source: Hoffman, In the Prison Camps of Germany, 1920, ix.
