Transcription"German POWs and civilian workers pause for a photograph while doing odd jobs on the Hank Peterson farm in 1944. Hermann Massing, second row, third from the right, spent nearly five months on the Peterson farm in 1944. He first worked in Peterson's fields of onions and beets; later, as seen here, he worked as a painter on the farm. He spent most of the remaining time as a prisoner in the southeastern part of the U.S. before his return to Germany in 1946." - Citation with image published in Swords Into Plowshares, Minnesota's POW Camps during World War II, by Dean B. Simmons, pg. 43.
