Note: Extremely rare World War I documentation of life in a German prisoner of war camp at Doeberitz, about 8 miles outside Berlin. These skillful and amusing little temperas were executed by a Russian prisoner incarcerated with other POWs from the UK and France. In their humor and rendering they remind one of the humourous publication, "Simplicissimus," a satirical German weekly that had begun publication some eighteen years earlier.
