Bottom image: In a drawing captioned "Carrying away the wounded," Beifeld shows Hungarian soldiers removing their wounded from the front lines by horse-drawn wagon.

The mood of the drawing as conveyed in his depiction of the soldiers and scenery is cold, desolate and forbidding.

One page of an illustrated album produced by Gyorgy Beifeld (1902-1982), a Hungarian Jew from Budapest, who was drafted into the Munkaszolgalat (Hungarian Labor Service system) and spent more than a year on the Soviet front, from April 1942 through May 1943. The album contains 402 drawings and watercolors by Byfield, as well as a narrative of his experiences.
