  • Cover of the Bibliotheque des prisonniers de guerre, published by the World's Alliance of YMCA's. This book listed the contents of the different series of circulating libraries available to prisoners of war working on Arbeitskommandos, far from prison camp libraries. The books which composed these libraries were published before the war and focused on history, literature, natural science, and vocational works.
