German Prisoners from Camp Aliceville Work at Sawmill
World War II
"German prisoners of war here at the country's largest internment camp had varied vocations prior to their army service, and American camp officials have furnished many of them with equipment for continuing in the type of work they know best. In this photo, German prisoners especially fitted for lumbering are shown at work. When working outside the camp they earn approximately $2.50 a day, of which 80 cents is given in canteen credits, while the remainder goes to the U. S. for their maintenance."
