Captured German Soldiers Make Furniture at U.S. Prison Camp
German prisoners of war in a n internment camp in the Eastern U.S. make furniture in the camp carpenter shop for use in their own and fellow prisoners' barracks. More than 140,000 prisoners of war, who were captured by U.S. forces, are quartered in 56 modern camps throughout the U.S. Governed by men of their own group, they perform all services connected with camp life, and when engaged on work projects, they are paid a daily wage in canteen credits. The making of furniture and airplane models attracts many of the prisoners, while others put out camp newspapers or plant and tend vegetable and flower gardens. Camp schools and libraries are provided, and opportunities to participate in group singing, theatricals and various sports also are available.
