Stalag XVIIIA, Wolfsberg, Austria: A group of Soviet POWs confer with a German army officer across the barbed wire. Under the circumstances, the conversation seems to be "amiable." The photo was taken by a British POW; the presence of British captives meant that this Stalag was borderline better than other camps since the Germans treated western soldiers much better than the Russians.

Group photo of captured allied troops (British, Australians and New Zealanders) at Stalag XVIIIA POW camp. The conditions of captivity of allied soldiers were vastly better than those the Germans reserved for the Russians. Here we have smiles, clean shaven faces, clean uniforms, and a general appearance of "normality". Food was also more than adequate.
