Military Snapshots - The Barracks at Stalag XII A

For POWs being held at Stalag XIIA in Limburg an der Lahn, Germany, basic survival was a daily struggle. For Jewish-American POW Ivan Goldstein, that struggle came with added dangers. Shown in this photo is the barracks of Stalag XII A -- a cold, dirty barn housing American prisoners, including Goldstein.
