  • View of the prison camp at Tuchel II, probably from the prison water tower or a guard tower. This photograph shows a number of new wooden barracks that have gadrens in front of the doors. Note the number of smoke stacks in the roofs of the barracks which reflect a concern for heat and ventilation. To the left, a large new building is under construction with prisoners providing the labor. Source: Backhaus, Die Kriegsgefangenen in Deutschland, Photo 23, 1915, 34.
