Group portrait of American prisoners soon after having been captured by German soldiers.

Photograph | Photograph Number: 33788

Group portrait of American prisoners soon after having been captured by German soldiers.

The original German caption reads: "The Americans who fell into German captivity after the succesful fights in South Tunisia, look at Germans with a mix of attention and curiosity. A lot of Americans were only since a few days on the African land when the German agression surprised them."

This photograph was found by the donor, a former Captain in the U.S. Army, on the floor of the Propaganda Ministry in Berlin in August 1945.
