View of the Exterior of the Hospital at Goettingen

Two prisoners of war walk along a path outside of the hospital ward at Goettingen. The lazaret was located on the periphery of most camps and separated by fences so that in the event of the outbreak of a communicable disease, the ward could be more easily isolated from the general camp population.
